As a gamer, specifically racing, I am finding that my built-in laptop keyboard has a limit of recognizing two keys being recognized at once. After that, any combination of two of however many keys is what the computer reads. Is there any way to abolish this limit? e-mail me if you need clarification of the problem.

Also, it becomes a hassle when typing, as the computer may miss a key or two... :)

I know that most basic keyboards are unable to process multiple keystrokes at once. That's one reason I had to buy a "gaming" keyboard for my desktop PC as it allowed more simultaneous keystrokes then basic ones. This is just a hardware issue and I'm 99% sure that you can't override how many keys the keyboard can register at once. Assuming I'm understanding your problem right, you may just need to find an external keyboard that allows more than 2 (which is the standard I think, if not three) simultaneous keystrokes.

As for the computer just missing a key or two due to two/three keys held at once that sounds more like an internal keyboard problem. Basic keyboards support 2-3 simultaneous strokes for just that reason, although you may need to use the Backspace, it will let you type out those letters.

Actually, my problem only pertained to the arrow keys. I have no need for a fix of this problem, as I changed my map so that the control that used to belong to the arrow key now belongs to another key. Thanks for your advice anyhow!
