I got a new sony viao EB14 laptop last week. This laptop has a problem with the keyboard. While playing games involving 3 or more simultaneous key presses, the keyboard fails to respond to more than 2 simultaneous key presses. Please help.

Anyway, many keyboards have that problem. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rollover_(key)#Key_jamming_and_ghosting –  Nick Dandoulakis Mar 26 '10 at 8:32

1 Answer 1

Many keyboards (including laptops), which are not designed for gaming, have
key jamming and ghosting problems.

One solution would be to buy a cheap USB keyboard, to play your games.

This is almost definitely the case, and you will probably not be able to do anything to fix the laptop keyboard. This article explains it very thoroughly. Most gaming keyboards have high enough key rollover so that this is not a problem. –  Fopedush May 22 '11 at 22:06
