Method 1: Unplug the Keyboard then Plug it again

It has been reported online that this easy method has worked for some people who encountered this issue. Try it. It may work like a charm on your case. 


Method 2: Try a Different USB Port (If you are not using a USB keyboard, skip this method.)


Connect your keyboard to your PC on a different USB port, because this problem might be caused by some port-specific issues.


Method 3: Uninstall Keyboard Driver in Device Manager

The keyboard would not work correctly if there is problem with the keyboard driver. Try to have the driver reloaded and see if the problem resolves.

Follow these steps:

1. Go to Device Manager.

2. In Device Manager, expand category “Keyboards”. Right-click on Logitech keyboard device name and select Uninstall on the context menu.


3. Windows will prompt you to confirm the uninstallation. Click OK button to continue. 



4. Reboot your PC as soon as possible. Then Windows will load the keyboard driver automatically.



Method 4: Update the Keyboard Driver

If uninstalling driver doesn’t work, try updating the driver. If you don’t have patience, time or computer skills to update the driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

To update your drivers with Driver Easy, just click the Scan Now button, then when it lists the drivers you need to update, click Update. The correct drivers will be downloaded, and you can install them – either manually through Windows or all automatically with Driver Easy Pro.

 

Method 5: Restart the HID Human Interface Service

If HID Human Interface Service is disabled, hotkeys won’t work at all. 
Follow these steps to check and restart the service if necessary.

1. Press Win+R (Windows key and R key) at the same time. A Run dialog will appear.

2. Type services.msc in the run box and click OK button.

If possible, connect your keyboard to a different computer and see if the problem occurs. If the keyboard does not work correctly on another computer either,you might need to have it replaced.
