Sidewinder X4 - Flashing Lights - Unresponsive

So I just recieved my new keyboard from amazon today, it's cool but I can't make it work properly or its just faulty.

So I open it up, connected it up. Booted, the drivers loaded as indicated in the baloon on the bottom right hand side of the screen. Now I don't know if the lights were flashing whilst boot up but they're definately flashing now, the 1, on the right and the 1 on the left are flashing aswell as the lights on the rest of the keyboard keep flashing. To test I press windows key a few times but it turns it on only, i can't type with it or nothing. Have I pressed something I shouldn't have or do I just have a faulty keyboard?

Go to Microsoft's website and download the proper driver for it, and if it came with a manual, now is the time to open it up and see if there is some kind of initial setup you need to do. Try the proper driver and report back.
