External Keyboard Locks Up
Closed, ResolvedPublic


My keyboard I'm using seems to completely freeze at random points while playing Arma 3. When I say it freezes, I cannot use any buttons on it at all, and the only way to use it again is to unplug it and plug it back in. This only happens while playing Arma 3, it's never happened before anywhere else.


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce

Seems to be random, could not reproduce it if I tried.

Additional Information

I've noticed that it seems to happen when I'm pressing a lot of buttons at once, for instance, I was flying an AH99 and holding the chat button and all that and the keyboard froze will I was pressing W, so the helicopter nose dived into the ground and there was nothing I could do about it.

Also, my keyboard is plugged into my laptop (Don't ask), it's not a desktop computer. Only the keyboard freezes, the laptop keys work as they should.

Might be windows sticky keys feature freezing it. Check the settings described here

Alright, turned sticky keys and all off. Thanks for the advice, I'll see if the problem occurs next time I play.

Mass closing ancient tickets with no activity for > 12 months; assume fixed or too trivial.
