As effective as standard keyboards are for general PC usage; there’s nothing quite like the Logitech K750 gaming keyboard. For a start, it’s lightweight and wireless and connects via an easy to install USB Bluetooth device which feeds information from the keyboard to the PC. These components are very effective when used together, although it’s a priority to install the relevant Logitech K750 driver to ensure that the keyboard is able to function correctly.
The Logitech K750 Driver
As with most Logitech products; the drivers come as standard within a CD as a part of the purchase. The CD can be found within the packaging along with the keyboard, and it should be inserted in to a CD or DVD drive so that the drivers can be installed. The driver is compatible with Windows XP through to Windows 8, although older versions may require a manual installation whereas newer operating systems will take care of the process automatically.
If a CD drive isn’t available, or if an online installation is preferred then users can visit www.support.logitech.com and search for the relevant drivers manually. By searching for the keyword ‘K750’, the driver options can be located before downloading the relevant files. Be sure to select the correct operating system, followed by the bit version (32 or 64-bit) from the drop down menu.
To minimize the risk of a conflict occurring between drivers, it’s a good idea to practice the following steps.
First of all, download the driver file in to a relevant folder. This can be the Downloads folder or anywhere else where drivers may be found. Avoid changing the name of the file as this can sometimes confuse the registry which may lead to the driver malfunctioning. The final thing to do is to check that no duplicate versions of the driver are present. If there are any duplicates present; simply delete them to make room for a fresh installation.
Once downloaded, the file will either install automatically, or require a manual installation depending on the operating system being used. In either instance, once the installation has been properly completed – reboot the laptop or computer so that the file can be placed securely within the system’s registry. It’s likely that more than one driver may require installation due to the wireless nature of the K750 gaming keyboard.
With the laptop or PC rebooted, the keyboard will now be ready for use and will boast the full array of features. It’s entirely possible to customize specific buttons to suit gaming purposes, as well as having the option to allocate other buttons to particular actions (application launches for example).
In the unlikely event that the keyboard malfunctions, then it’s advised that you either roll back or uninstall the driver, and then perform a clean installation following the same process mentioned above. This should rectify the matter, but if not then it may be a compatibility issue. Right clicking the application’s root file will allow the user to adjust the Logitech K750 gaming keyboard’s compatibility, and any operating system can be selected.
