Keyboard "clicking", Computer reboot


Recommended Posts

Hello there,

 

i got a Problem with DCS.

 

I use TrackHAT Clip and PS3 Camera and everything runs fine.

 

After some Minutes Flying every time i press the Keyboard it makes a "clicking" Sound in DCS but dont respond. I can *click click* but nothing happens. Logitec Joystick still doing as he should no freeze etc.

 

No Alt+Tab working and only thing helps is rebooting my System.

 

Need help! :pilotfly:

Where does the "clicking" sound come from? Is it heard coming from the keyboard, inside the computer, or from the speakers?

Good Point Winston.

 

The only Mechanical apparatus is the HDD assuming it is of the older type. Although there are Mechanical keyboards available they aren't as prevalent as the HDD.

 

More info. is needed here.

Unless the OP is somehow tapping keys on a mechanical keyboard, not all of which make noise, without being aware of what his fingers are doing, their existence is not even remotely relevant.

I was thinking, when a computers keyboard buffer is full, a sound like this might be heard coming from the computer itself depending on the architecture of the computers mainboard. He could be hearing this "clicking" sound caused by a key command that is being repeated rapidly.

 

I've had this happen before when my old Thrustmaster gear went bezerk one day. The noise continued after I exited DCS and I was eventually able to open a dos window to see the characters being displayed as the key command kept repeating in an endless cycle. I could also see endless characters being generated when I opened wordpad. A re-boot cured the problem until the TM hardware glitched again.

 

Perhaps this user is experiencing a stuck key, or a rapidly repeating key command sequence generated by his flight gear?

I have seen this as well. In my case it was by a poorly constructed Target profile.

Wow. You do realize that was in reference to the "Mechanical" devices and not your assumed point. Please re-read. Try not to get caught in the vernacular this time. Rude comment.

 

cichildfan now sees this as having happened before. So the above comment as to the "Relevance" is changed. No apology needed.

 

As to the OP. Please provide us with more info. on your PC Specs. In the meantime ensure nothing is touching your speaker cords or the board itself.

 

Does this happen in other software?

Is this a USB sound card or dedicated card? I would get that info. from your rar file but I am currently upgrading PC and haven't reached the

install of all my tools yet.

 

Have you tried deleting your saved games folder?

 

I want to talk about the USB being dropped by the OS but it doesn't happen in other programs so

this isn't your case. just sounds the same.
