(Solved) Holding "Shift" "W" "A" keys make a beep noise and prevent movement in games.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Wondering if this is something to do with my keyboard or something else. I've tried multiple keyboards and still the same problem. Basically the keys you would use to sprint and strafe to the left at the same time make a beeping noise through my headset. Inside the game it also doesn't recognize me pressing those keys and does not let me strafe left.

I've googled the issue with not much help. Sticky keys are off as far as I know and shouldn't be the issue. My sig rig is what this happens on. Windows 7 64-bit. This issue also happens outside of gaming just sitting at the desktop if I attempt to hold the same keys. About a 3 second pause and then a beep.

Make sure sticky keys is disabled in your accessibility options/control panel; what keyboard do you have?

This reminds me of computers I used to use in the 90s.. if I held too many buttons at once it would make a beep

EDIT:
According to http://www.fixya.com/support/t10841279-logitech_k120_keyboard_beeps_when_any it's recommended you download any updates to the software/drivers here:

Even when I try it now in the quick reply box it only types the "A" then nothing else. If I hold shift and any other buttons it shows them on screen. So something is stopping those keys from working.

It's more than likely your keyboard(s), you need one with a larger buffer. It's happened to me before.

But wouldn't that mean that if I held other buttons it would beep the same? Only buttons it does it with are "w" and "a". Could it be a setting in my bios? Not sure what I'd look for.

For example I can hold shift and ten other keys and still not get that beep. So I don't think buffer has anything to do with this.

It's retarded, but yes. Specifically those keys are on the same circuit in the keyboard or something and that's what causes it. It rarely happens with Shift + other keys. Try mashing something like IOPJKL together and see? I remember doing research and finding this out. If you decide to buy a new keyboard just definitely be sure to look into whether other people encounter this problem. I can push all the keys I want on my Logitech G11 without this problem.

A good test to see how bad it is:

Hold down both left shift and right shift and type:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

My crappy Dell keyboard at work:

TE UIC RWN JUS VER TE LAY DG

My G11 can type out the entire sentence.

Isn't that called ghosting or something?
While you're in the game, try changing your movement keys to something else and if it still happens in-game you need a different keyboard.

I'm probably wrong, but hope this helps, lol.

Yep remapping works. Not that I want to do that, I'm so used to using WASD. It is bypassing the problem but not fixing it. So ghosting shouldn't be the issue correct? Unless Pyros is right by saying the WA are on the same circuit.

Edit @Pyros: H K BN FX JMS V H LZ DG is what I get. So you suggest just remapping. I'm just looking at trying to fix the annoyance in the game. But readjusting to new keys seems annoying as well lol.
