  2. By disabling the key I mean using SharpKeys to disable it. The keyboard still repeats "/" anyway.

    Let us look at both hardware and software

    Software; if you are using a Windows OS it could mean a bad synapse interface. Try the followings
    • Update Synapse
    • Uninstall and re-install Synapse
    • Update your Windows version. Since Windows 7 have compatibility issue with latest Synapse exe file, you might need to upgrade to Windows 10.
    Hardware; it maybe a sticky buttons or bad usb interface
    • See if you have any sticky keys
    • Plug to another USB port
     
  4. It turns out that the keyboard was plugged into a 'USB HUB', so the '/' was being spammed like crazy. Thank you for the solution.
