Hello

I got this keyboard for my computer and I really dont want to buy another one so heres my problem.

The keyboard is a HP Multimedia Wireless Keyboard and the model number is 5189URF and when i play games like garrys mod or minecraft which involve jumping and moving at the same time. This is where the problem is. I use the arrow keys to move about and right control to jump and 0/Insert on the Keypad to crouch and Right Shift to sprint. I can use the arrow keys on there on just fine but when I need to jump while moving nothing happens until i take my finger off the up arrow then it jumps same goes for Sprinting and crouching. So I thought to myself how about i just use the default keys as in WASD so i come up to a bit where i need to jump same thing happens im holding W and then Press Spacebar nothing happens until i release W and then it jumps. Really dont know what to do.

I have tried it on Windows XP and Vista.

Thanks in advance

This is called keyboard ghosting. It's when your holding down 3 keys at once and it won't register them all. Wireless keyboards aren't made for gaming so they don't need to be registering more than three keys at once. For example my USB keyboard has 15 key anti ghosting because it is a keyboard for gaming.

What I dont get is that Right Shift or Right Control and THEN press any arrow keys it works fine but if i do it the other way around it doesn't work. I need it to be the other way around

There is another thing called key roll over. Non-mechanical keyboards use a flexible membrane, it can only bend so much so if you press a few keys to close to eachother, it doesn't work. Ghosting also works different when your hitting shift, ctrl, or alt.
