i can only press two keys on my keyboard and the third key is disabled. I tried updating my keyboard(Standard PS/2 Keyboard) but says it's up to date. I would like to get some drivers to fix this. If anyone knows where i could find the drivers, plz help me.

Hello jmscreation;
For what application/program are you trying to use triple-key commands?

So then should it matter?
I am running a Game Maker application through Yoyogames plug-in player. (its application name depends on the version of the GM game, in this case GM8)

It's more likely an issue with GameMaker than with Windows 7. So yes, it matters.

Ok, but i've never experienced this except on Windows 7. I played the same game(i made) and it works fine on XP. Any suggestions?

Contact the Game Maker application support site and see what other Win7 users are doing.

Can you press ctrl-alt-delete still?

Yes I can. It has something to do with Windows 7 compatibility with Game maker.

You could also try Win7 32bit and see if you can get your game to run using the Compatibility options.

And you could always setup a dual boot Win7 / WinXP capability.

I tried this, but it didn't change the fact that i could press these keys:
Up, Left, and Space

One of these would be disabled. If Up and Left was held, Space wouldn't work. Etc.

Hey, I partitioned a new hardrive("G:" 50 GB) and I want to put XP on it, but I don't know where to get the XP disk. Can i simply use one I've already used for another computer? Could I download it? I don't want to go buy one.

I had originally tried the compatibility mode. I made it run on XP Service pack 3.

Have you tried running it in xp compatibility mode?

Yes, that's what I did. It still didn't work, but i'm going to see if I can get XP on this computer anyway. I really like the idea of another Operating system.

50GB is a good sized XP partition. I've been using a 40GB partition and it's been plenty - 25GB Free after initial install plus the usual add-ons like MS Office 2003, Firefox and Google web browsers and a dozen or so favorite utilities.
You'll still need to comply with the license requirements but if you have a retail copy of XP not currently in use then you're ready to go.

You'll be using METHOD TWO: When Windows 7 is Installed First
It's about half way down the page in the Windows 7 Forums tutorial linked above.
