  1. Hi all, I've a Devastator Keyboard and during logon screen (on windows 10) it's not working. Only mouse is working. After login the keyboard is working fine. Someone have the same issue? How is possible to solve this problem?
  2. Why you don't apply the 1th method? This is the simplest way...
  3. Hi Romanza313, Mr. Mike was using the Method 2 posted in first page of this thread. In any case here below some explainations. To see the hidden folders in Windows 10 you have to follow the instructions in: then you have to rename scrlock.txt in scrlock.vbs (*) and put it in the below path: C:\Users\(account name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup where 'account name' is your windows personal account. (*) to show the file extension follow: Start Windows Explorer, you can do this by opening up any folder. Click Organize. Click Folder and search options. Click the View tab. Scroll down until you notice Hide extensions for known file types, un-check this line by clicking the check box. Note To hide file name extensions, check this line. Click OK Everythings is clear?
  4. Hi Jorn, it's the same method reported on 4. I've already reported although for me it didn't work for win 7 and win 10. I put on the list as proposed by microsoft but only for the record...
  5. working fine on Win 10. I'm updating the right thread (
  6. Hi Breaz nice job! I'll try asap your setup. Please update the original thread with your trick:
  7. HI Mik, many thanks for your support. I'll add it in the first post to benefit of all users. I'd tested this method first of all on Windows 7 because it's very easy to implement it, but it didn't work (I don't know why). br SMDB
  8. In my configuration I don't use password to access, but I'm seeing that the LEDs come on after logon (when clicking on the icon of my user profile). I think that 1th and 2nd methods (using HKLOCALMACHINE section) operate during the startup phase (and not waiting the logon). You should try and than bring your experience for the benefit of all users. Frankly speaking I do not know why these three methods work for someone and not for someone else. Mysteries of Microsoft.....for this reason I have collected them all. So everyone can try the best (working) method for him.
  9. Hi Aaron, in my initial post I have collected several solutions found in other unofficial forums by users which claim to be working. Unfortunately also for my hw/sw configuration the 1 and 2 solutions don't work, while 3 is perfect for me (as said above). I suggest you to try the solutions in order. good luck SMDB
  10. Hi all, here: a user guide for configure keyboard backlight autostart on Windows o.s. (without using the key SCR-LK). bye SMDB
  11. Hi all, to automatically switch on the keyboard's leds on Windows logon, there are several methods: Method 1) Launch setup_Devastator MB24.msi (attached .rar) [working on Win 7-8-8.1-10]: thanks to Breaz _____________________________________________________________________________________________ Simply decompress the rar file and launch the installer. Method 2) Put vbs script in Startup Folder [it seems that isn't working on Win 7 but is OK for Win 10]: __________________________________________________________________________________________ Put the script in Windows startup folder (hidden folder), your start folder is in ​C:\Users\(account name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup [Note: first rename scrlock.txt in scrlock.vbs] Restart Windows. Method 3) Using Group Editor [working fine on Win 10]: __________________________________________________ Launch Group Editor in Start menu (gpedit.msc), go in USER CONFIGURATION > WINDOWS SETTINGS > SCRIPTS (LOGON / LOGOFF). Double click on the option LOGON and ADD. There putting the script .vbs (with full path) [Note: first rename scrlock.txt in scrlock.vbs] Restart Windows. Method 4) Using values on Windows Registry: _________________________________________ You can actually set this string value to any value from 0 – 7 (default is 2), depending on your needs: 0 – Turn off all keyboard indicators 1 – Turn on Caps Lock 2 – Turn on Num Lock 3 – Turn on Caps Lock and Num Lock 4 – Turn on Scroll Lock 5 – Turn on Caps Lock and Scroll Lock 6 – Turn on Num Lock and Scroll Lock <------- 7 – Turn on all keyboard indicators Launch Registry Editor in Start menu (regedit.exe), you can put this value on: - for all the users on the machine: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators - for the current user: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators Restart Windows. Method 5) Put the attached script at startup on Windows Registry: ____________________________________________________________ You can start a vbscipt from registry or startup by: WScript C:\somefloder\somefolder2\yourscript.vbs Launch Registry Editor in Start menu (regedit.exe), you can put this line in a value on: - for all the users on the machine: HKLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run - for the current user: HKCURRENTUSER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run [Note: first rename scrlock.txt in scrlock.vbs] Restart Windows.
