If the computer does not detect your Razer Blackwidow keyboard, or the keyboard is not responding at all however you try to type, the main cause is a missing or faulty driver. This post will show you how to update your Razer Blackwidow driver step by step.
How to update Razer Blackwidow Driver?
There are two methods for you to update your Razer Blackwidow driver:
When you plug in your Razer Blackwidow keyboard, your system will install a generic driver automatically so that you can use its most basic functions. However, it can bump into problems sometimes.
To fix it, you can update its driver either from Razer Sysnapse or download its legacy driver online and manually install it.
- Download Razer Sysnapse 2 or Razer Sysnapse 3 (supports Razer Blackwidow Elite and Lite, Chroma V2 and Tournament Edition Chroma V2).
- Run the Razer Synapse software, which is a cloud-based device manager that includes advanced configuration settings and driver updates.
- Sign in and locate your keyboard, then update the driver.
- Go to Razer Support for Standalone Keyboard Drivers and locate your keyboard model.
- Download the standalone legacy driver and install it manually.
- Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
If you don’t want to bother downloading the software or updating the driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
