    I've been going through forums for the past couple hours seeing if anyone else had this issue and as far as I can tell it's unique to me. I'll start off with the background of my problem:

    After plugging in the Razer Deathstalker Ultimate (RDU) keyboard I was prompted by Razer Synapse 2.0 for an update. Patch Notes: "- Razer DeathStalker Ultimate Configurator Fixed: *Various bug fixes and performance improvements."

    The update proceeded as any other update does and it kept progressing until it hit the 55% mark and I noticed my whole computer had froze. I restarted my computer and proceeded with a second attempt at the same update to only yield the same result.

    After this, I uninstalled Razer Synapse, restarted my computer, then reinstalled Razer Synapse, then attempted the update again. Same result as before.

    I uninstalled all drivers for the RDU keyboard, restarted my computer, then tried the update again. This time it got to 60% before freezing.

    I tried installing the device driver update on their own without Razer Synapse and again my system froze without being able to complete the update.

    I noticed the programmable buttons above the touch screen on the RDU keyboard lit up white for a half second before my computer froze whenever the update was taking place.

    At this point I was out of ideas and started browsing to see if anyone else had this issue and couldn't find any information on it that was similar to my experience. Any help is appreciated and I'm thank you anyone who can help my with this issue
