I bought a new motherboard Zeebronics G41 D3; and assembled it for first time by myself;

My Specs are:

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.16 Ghz
Dolgix 8GB (2*4GB) DDR3 RAM 1333MHz
Asus NVIDIA GeForce 210 1 GB DDR3 Graphics Card
480 ggb SSD Adata
Zebronics 450 W psu
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit OS

All my other io devices are working fine; except my Zebronics keyboard (connected via UsB 2.0 port) misbehaving and typing almost every other letter twice; This is happening for every key, letters, numbers, backspace, caplock. For e.g.; PPAASSWWOORRDD.

The keyboard was working fine on previous motherboard.

Solutions I tried:
  1. tried every other usb ports (no luck)
  2. disabled legacy mode in bios (no luck)
  3. reinstalled Windows 7 os (no luck)
  4. changed keyboard properties from Control Panel- keyboard repeat rate from fast to slow (no luck)
Now, I'm out of ideas. Is this a hardware problem OR some sort of software/driver problem OR any bios settings, please let me know. Desperately seeking a solution here.

First ensure that you have indeed installed the correct keyboard drivers for Windows 7.

Windows 7 is obsolete and many manufacturers no longer provide or update drivers for Windows 7.

You may need to do some online searching to find the drivers if they are not specifically provided by Zebronics.

I would not expect a damaged CPU pin to be at fault.

Yes: test your keyboard on another computer and try another known working keyboard on your computer.

Not sure I understand your "last option" response.

However, I believe you are saying that the Zebronics keyboard does work on another computer - is that correct?

On your computer, plug the Zebronics keyboard in again and try the Windows 10 built-in troubleshooters - the troubleshooters may find and fix something.

Type "WIN" + "I" > Update & Security > Trouble shoot and then scroll down to "Keyboard" under "Find and fix other problems".

If that does not work try downloading the keyboard drivers again via the manufacturer's website.

Thanks for the reply .

please , note i am using windows 7 64 bit;

yes, The keyboard was working fine on previous motherboard.

i had already tried Uninstall and reinstalling drivers but no luck; also i connected usb keyboard to all other ports; also i connected with front usb on pc case; but it behaves same way; i guess; i have to test with another keyboard;and if it persist then the problem must be with my new motherboard; i will have to take it to service center.
Also , i've read somewhere ;that if cpu pin is damaged then motherboard also behaves strangely. As i assembled my pc first time ; this chance also exists. i just hope, this doesn't turns out to be true .

People take their time to help you, you could be a little more humble. Good luck with your problem.
here, i am pissed off that i spent my money on new device and its not working ; and you are expecting to be humble. i'm freaking typing using onscreen keyboard from past 3 days; and then i post this detailed question expecting to be answered. Atleast, read the question carefully before asking.

So, you suggest i should install windows 10? i will look into it. if nothing works then also, i am looking for an alternative of buying usb to ps/2 converter.

As I understand it, the keyboard now has a USB plug -correct.

So you will really need a PS2 to USB converter in order to determine if the keyboard works.

Motherboard [PS/2 Port] <--- [PS/2 to USB Converter [USB port] <-----Keyboard USB cable

Before purchasing a converter do try to find another way to prove that the keyboard is or is not working.

If the keyboard is not working a convertor probably not help.

Exception being some gross misconnection between keyboard's USB plug and all of the motherboard's USB ports.

However converters are inexpensive and there is no harm in trying if that is the only immediate thing you can do.
