[RESOLVED] Xim Apex doesn't read my keyboard
« on: 04:21 AM - 02/14/19 »
I bought the xim apex about a week ago and it work great at first,  but now won't read my keyboard . I have a corsair k95 platinum, I changed the onboard memory to not have lighting effects although my first couple times using it it worked fine with lighting effects.  I even bought a 5v power supply in case the was the issue.  The xim manager shows all 3 logos but doesn't register key strokes. I was thinking the hub failed but I can plug it into my computer with kb and mouse hooked up and it works fine.  Any help would be appreciated

hey,

did you set your k95 into bios mode?
most corsair keyboards require that to work with the xim, theres either a switch at the back of the keyboard or its part of the driver options

Hey thanks for the quick response.  That actually worked but was difficult to find out how to do so with no switch on kb. F1+the lock key switches it into bios mode for anyone else having trouble with this issue.  Thanks again

thanks for the feedback, so far that step was only necessary with the corsair strafe keyboard
good to know that more corsair keyboards require this now!
