The name Logitech can be seen within most homes, whether in the form of speakers, monitors or keyboards. As one of the great range of Logitech gaming keyboards, the G19 has paved the way for almost a dozen unique models of keyboard from Logitech. As with most pieces of hardware, it will be necessary for users to download the relevant Logitech G19 drivers before using the keyboard.
Logitech G19 Drivers
Logitech include a physical copy of their downloadable drivers on a CD. The best way to download the latest drivers is to insert this CD in to a CD or DVD drive, and then follow the instructions on screen. Certain operating systems (such as Windows 7 and Windows 8) will typically update drivers automatically, although earlier versions of Windows may require manual installation. Mac computers will require the Mac version of the drivers.
If the driver CD isn’t available, then the next best thing to do is to visit the Logitech website at www.logitech.com and search for the driver there. To locate the driver before installation, enter the model ‘G19′ in to their built-in search bar and the option to browse drivers will be displayed.
Be sure to select the relevant driver from the options available, including 32-bit or 64-bit options. When downloading the driver, save it to a predefined folder and don’t alter the name of the file. This will reduce the chance of the driver malfunctioning at any point, as well as making the installation process as straight forward as possible.
It’s not uncommon for drivers to conflict between one another, and this event will typically occur if the registry has two or more versions of the same driver. To avoid this, ensure that there are no duplicated drivers within the Download’s folder. Once the driver has downloaded, it will either install automatically (in the case of newer operating systems), or users may be prompted to manually install the driver.
As soon as the driver has installed properly, it’s a good idea to restart any laptop or PC so that the new driver can be stored within the hard-drives’ registry. With the driver installed, the G19 keyboard will be ready to go. All of the unique features and functions of the gaming keyboard can now be enjoyed, including the ability to define particular characteristics of buttons. If the keyboard doesn’t seem to be functioning as intended, then it’s a good idea to roll back the driver, update it or reinstall it entirely.
