Hi all,


I was trying to put CyanogenMod on my sister's GS3, when I got to the part that requires use of zadig. I had a brainfart and forgot to select the device from the drop-down menu, and instead pressed 'Install Driver' with my Microsoft Wired 600 keyboard selected. As a result, I now have WinUSB instead of HidUsb installed on my keyboard, and am currently using W8's lovely onscreen keyboard.


I have tried virtually everything to fix this, but I just can't seem to. The keyboard works in BIOS and the NumLock light stays on until about 3/4 of the way into loading Windows. I have system restored, rolled back the driver from properties, uninstalled and reinstalled the driver through device manager, attempted auto-driver-update, as well as manual. I expected HidUsb.sys to show up in manual update, but it doesn't, even with the compatable hardware box unchecked. The file is, however, in sys32/drivers. I suspect in order to fix it, I'll have to find a way to flash the driver onto the keyboard.


Anyway, I'm getting pretty over using this silly onscreen keyboard, so any help is greatly appreciated. I'm guessing I've damaged this keyboard something chronic, but I thought I'd get another opinion before I waste money on a new one.
