Logitech keyboard not working: 7 Fixes

Logitech is perhaps one of the best companies for PC peripherals such as keyboards, mice and webcams, among others. However, as well made as their products are, they do fail at times.

In this article, we’re going over a few fixes you can try if your Logitech keyboard stops working.

Physically inspect the keyboard

The first thing you should do is check the keyboard for any physical damage. Ensure the keyboard is in good shape, that the cable isn’t snipped and that the connector isn’t bent or broken. Trying another USB port is also not a bad idea. You can also try plugging the keyboard into another computer to isolate the issue.


Avoid using any USB hubs

If you’re using a USB hub, the voltage or current fluctuations in it can cause malfunctions with your peripherals. Try to directly connect your keyboard to your PC and check if it’s working alright. 


Reinstall the Logitech Software

Sometimes the Logitech software can conflict with the device. Reinstalling the software can help resolve these issues.

Step 1: Press Windows key + X to open the Quick Access menu. Click Apps and Features.

Restart your computer and try plugging in the keyboard to check if it works. If it does, you can go ahead and install the software again. 


Disable your antivirus

Some antivirus software can also conflict with your keyboard drivers or with the Logitech software. In such cases, disable your antivirus and restart your computer to see if the keyboard works.

Now restart your PC and reconnect your keyboard. Windows will reinstall the keyboard drivers, and it should work just fine. If it doesn’t, open the Device Manager again but this time, instead of uninstalling the driver, click the Update Driver option.

Disable Filter keys

Sometimes Windows ease of access services can cause problems with hardware peripherals. In the case of a keyboard, try disabling Filter Keys to see if that solves your problem.

Step 1: Press the Windows key and search for Keyboard. Click the corresponding option.
