Help! Keyboard Backward Slash not working- cant find solution

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've come on here before and its helped immensely, so here's another issue.

I have a Logitech g213 keyboard and the Backslash key below the question mark does not work. Before you say its the keyboard, the mystery thickens when i tell you that I can use the question mark key. Meaning I can [SHIFT] + [BACKSLASH] AND GET A QUESTION MARK. ITS NOT THE SWITCH. Besides, its a membrane keyboard anyways. I've checked the windows virtual keyboard and the same key does not work. Heres the strange thing, I dont have any key remapping software at all. But however the backslash on my numpad works on its own. Any ideas people?

Did you install the logitech software that is compatible with that keyboard? It also contains device drivers, so it's worth a shot.

Does it still happen when you plug the keyboard into another device?

Standard troubleshooting step

The slash key works on other devices i can confirm that. 

I really dont think its the keyboard, read the whole explanation. Theres something going on with windows. But i just dont know what, thats why i came to this forum because i dont know what to do. No one else has this issue.
