I've actually been in-need of a keyboard for probably 6-12 months now. My Microsoft Sidewinder X4 broke some time ago, and I've been using a $13 Logitech K120 in its stead, figuring I would get something else down the road.
I am using windows 7 on my desktop. I recently bought a new keyboard - the Microsoft Sidewinder x4. I was trying to figure out why my volume buttons were not working and I stumbled upon something strange. Windows seems to think that I have 3 keyboards connected although I only have one keyboard connected via USB.
