Ok first off thanx for any replys i get.

The problem : For about a year now anytime i run a first person shooter my W key cuts out. If i'm playing my game and im moving then at a random time my W key just cuts out with im still holding down so i have to take my finger off and press it down again (im sure anyone who plays FPS will know you cant keep standing still in the middle of a game).

The thing is its not just the W key its moving forward in genral, ive changed the key to the arrow buttons and so on but the same thing still happens and ive also tryed different keyboards with no luck.

Now here's the weird part, if i hold down my W key in any other program, lets say word then there is no problem and it never cuts out, its only when i play a FPS game.

The games i normaly play are :
Unreal Tournement ( the original )
Quake 3
Halo
Battle field 1942 ( all add-on games )


Oh i must also point out that when im playing lego star wars which is a 3rd person shooter i do not have this problem.

Any replys would be GREATLY thanked as i havent been able to play these games for a year now and have missed them so much.

generally this is a keyboard issue, not a game issue. have you tried a different keyboard to see if the problem still occurs?

I don't know if this is what you're talking about but....try this.

Start -> Control Panel -> Keyboard.

Under repeat rate and delay, drag all the way to the right.
