  1. Hi, I have a Deathstalker Chroma (Not sure how old because I got it on amazon from a 3rd party) and one thing that I found annoying is that when I press my CAPS LOCK key it does not turn on an LED or in this case change color. So I want to know if there is any possible way to make my caps lock key change color when pressed.

    P.S. I have seen vids on how to do it with the Blackwidow Chroma but it doesn't work because I have to select the whole section of the keyboard.

    The deathstalker only has 3 color zones, ut is not possible to do. There is a caps lock indicator on the top right of the keybard.
     
  3. Thanks for the reply but if there is anyone that can send me firmware and software to do allow it that would be great. And is there a way to make the whole keyboard change color after 1 press and change back after a second press?

    It would only be able to work with a Blackwidow because they
    Deathstalker can not be lit in on in individual key

    Sadly, as others have mentioned, you simply can't do this with the DeathStalker Chroma. It is not a software problem, but a hardware problem. So no software you download will fix it.

    The problem is the logic board can't talk to each individual LED in the DeathStalker like it can in the BlackWidow Chroma. It can only talk to 3 'chunks' or zones of LEDs at the same time. Therefore, the DS keys do not have individually programmable backlighting. This saves cost. It is similar to the Tartarus (can only change all the keys at the same time) vs the Orbweaver (can change each individual key).

    This diagram shows the 3 lighting zones the DS has:
