Hey all.
I'm having this problem with my keyboard. Anytime I play Guitar Hero III and you're supposed to press three keys together (E, R & T) they do not work but all other three key combinations work?
How do I remove this buffer?

This may be a physical limitation of your keyboard. Depending on how the switch matrix is setup in your keyboard some key combinations can't be detected.
