Razer Core V2 Support
My Razer product does not work correctly with a specific program or game. What should I do?
If you are experiencing issues with the Razer device in a particular application, test the device in another application to confirm if the issue is specific to that application. If the Razer device functions properly in another application, then the program is likely the cause of the issue. Feel free to contact customer support to report the issue and see if there are any fixes or workarounds for the issue.
Do I need to reboot my laptop every time I connect the Razer Core V2?

What is new with the Razer Core V2?
