Just Reformated my pc cause i got a new cpu and mobo.
Installed and reisntalled all drivers 3 times so that does not seem to be the problem. What is the problem is that if i open wow my keyboard stops working all over the board. if i close down wow it works again. if i open diablo 3 it works but when i open wow i can't use my keyboard at all. This keyboard worked perfectly fine before the reformat.
Too clarify better: When nothing is open keyboard works When Diablo 3 is open keyboard works If wow is open keyboard stops working. can't even type in a notepad
Can anyone help?
link to dxdiag cause its too long to post here http://www.filedropper.com/dxdiag_3
Edit also tried with 3 difference keyboards same issue
Are you using multiple keyboard languages? Sometimes that can affect your keyboard's functioning.
Is it a USB keyboard? Wired or wireless? Try pressing both Ctrl keys while in game and see if that fixes the problem.
Edit: With WoW closed, go to your WoW folder and delete your Cache folder and rename your Interface and WTF folders to InterfaceOLD and WTFOLD. It's possible that an addon is blocking input.
You also may want to run anti-virus and anti-malware software. You may have picked up a keylogger and sometimes they can interfere with keyboard input as well (doesn't sound like this is the case but better safe than sorry).
found a breakthrough. well it jsut makes it more strange.
I have 2 instances of world of warcraft almost 100% identicaly. the only difference is that one is on a ssd and the other on a hdd.
before i reformated my pc i took the SSD wow folder and put it into my hdd so i would not loose that instance of the client and when i was done reformating i moved it back again.
Now if i try to use the second instance of the client the much older one i can use my keyboard but not the one on SSD
Gonna try move the client from the ssd to another hdd to see if it still does the same thing. if it does ill just delete everything and copy my client to my ssd. don't really care about the addons.
Seems to be that instance of the client is broken somehow so ill just copy my old client onto my ssd and see what happens.
EDIT2: god i hate moving stuff between a HDD and SSD only 100mb/s -_-'
Now it works even on the SSD it seems that the instance i had of the wow client from my ssd was corrupted somehow. now its time to find addons again.
