Hi there,

I've got an issue with my keyboard, and any assistance would be muchly appreciated

Whenever i play and FPS games, doesn't matter what it is, Doom 3, Bioshock, Crysis.

when i hold down the "w" key to walk, my character will walk a few steps and then stop, and i have to re-press "w" to get him to move again....

any ideas what is causing this and more importantly, how to make it stop?
