Keyboard is acting up

  1. hey guys,

    i just got a acer aspire 5520 and im generally happy with it, the only problem i sometimes get is weird keyboard lockups.

    sometimes the directional keys freeze (say im playing something, i tap a direction and sometimes it sticks for a sec or 2), not the keys themselves ofcourse but the direction i go in the game.

    or sometimes the directional keys just stop working all together for a sec or 2 (this happens in Stepmania mostly) after i spam the keys a lot.

    any suggestions?

    PS: also, how do i get the keyboard to recognize 3+ keys at once(pressing 3+ keys together), it can only do 2 max atm.

    thanks for the help

    Are there any programs like virus or hard drive scans automatically set to run on the system? How long has this been happening?
