I doubt it's software. Take it back / send it back, same as any other faulty product.

I've experienced some weird problems myself.  Some keys we're working.  After a lot of testing, I found the problem.
I was placing my VSTs in a specific folder (C:\AllVSTs) and when updating Analog Labs, I forgot to place the new VST into my folder and so, the VSTs weren't responding correctly.  I also determined later that the 32bit and 64bit VSTs were overwriting each other so I had to create C:\AllVSTs32 and C:\AllVSTs64 which solved even more problems.

It all depends on your particular setup.  How did you installed your DAW.  Does it know where your VSTs are?
To verify the keyboard, install another software like Analog Lab 3 to determine if everything works.
Also, you might have to program your keyboard using the Midi Control Center software (Essential in order to setup your keyboard properly)
For example, does your DAW use "Mackie" or "HUI" communications format?
There should be no firmware updates since the last one was last year.  You really need the MCC (Midi Controll Center) to set up your keyboard to make it talk to your DAW.
Install the Ableton Live as well and all may be revealed.

Iím using keys in Pro Tools HD 10 with different instruments (actually itís RTAS plug-ins).
System is Mac OS 10.9
When Iíve opening midi control panel Iím havenít see any input midi data from faulty keys.

There is no option in any of the software settings that will turn off just five keys, so it isn't a configuration or software issue, and it won't matter which DAW you are using it with. It is faulty. You haven't mentioned what country you are in but most countries have basic consumer rights, just take it back.

Hope you get it resolved.

Hi, i having saming issue, but quitly different. In My case, my keylab essential 61 , is installed on Windows as a keylab essential 49, some keys (C3, D3, e last octave) didnīt work, and some keys taking different notes, but in some cases Windows detect the correct driver (Key lab essential 61), in this case, everything works fine. I believe thatīs is not a hardware problem. Tried in diferents computer, and same behavior...
