  1. Certain keys are not working when playing a game.


    Everytime I launch up a start up game Minecraft, steam games, LOL, roblox, etc on my computer, certain keys on my keyboard will suddenly stop working after playing for a 20-25 minutes. The keys that stop working would always be g,h,esc,",alt. Not only would it stop working in game, but it would also stop working after I exit out of the game for a few minutes. When I plug a separate keyboard into my laptop, those keys would function on the usb connected keyboard. I don't understand why this is the case\e; can someone please help?

    :)

  3. Unable to left click and some keys are not working during game play

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    • Is the issue specific when playing games? Are you able to use the
      W,A,S,D keys while typing?
    • Did you make any changes to the keyboard layout?
    • This issue may arise due to driver conflicts or due to change in game settings.
    I suggest you to check if the keyboard supports gaming mode key, if it does, I suggest you to check if the option is turned on.

    Also check the game settings and game controllers and make sure that the controller keys are not changed.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
