Gigabyte has released a firmware update for their new Aero 15 laptop that fixes a bug preventing certain key combinations from registering. The 1.1.5 update is available through the Gigabyte Fusion application.

Gigabyte's most recent creation may be the brand's most solid offering to date. We recently reviewed the Aero 15 and scored it 87%, citing its battery life, performance, design, and connectivity. The machine is not without its quirks, however, and one of them was that the anti-ghosting function of the keyboard didn't seem to properly function. Ctrl + Shift + n, among other shortcuts with Ctrl + Shift, seemed not be recognized on the laptop's keyboard. This was an issue for input of certain languages and program shortcuts (perhaps you find yourself frequently accessing Chrome's incognito mode?).

Luckily, Gigabyte has rolled out a timely firmware update for the built-in keyboard that seems to fix the bug. To update your Aero 15's keyboard, open the Gigabyte Fusion software and click on the orange cog-like button next to the "minimize" and "close" buttons in the upper-right-hand corner.
