  1. My W key will get stuck, but isn't physically stuck


    Long story short, and I've only noticed this within the last three weeks, my W key will sometimes get stuck when I'm playing video games. Never when I'm typing, only when playing video games. Except it physically isn't stuck, as once I tap it, it pops right back up. I have already spent a fair amount of time cleaning it out, and it has not fixed the problem.

    :)

  2. Only 'W' key stucks while playing games.


    I cleaned W key but nothing changed. Although I have a theory; I am using my laptop's keyboard and under WASD keys there is a GPU and when playing games this part of keyboard gets hot. With heat something inside W key can become sticky and that maybe casue W key to stuck. I don't have a seperate keyboard but my first job is find one and testing with that one. I saw this stuck problem with Dying Light, Elder Scrolls Online, Kİngdom Come Deliverance.

  3. Only 'W' key stucks while playing games.


    While playing games, W key have been started to stuck. I mean; when I stop to press W key, my chracter still moving forward and after 2-3 seconds it automaticly stops moving. This situtiation only happens when I press W key for 2-3 seconds. Only happens in games and only happens for W key.

    Things I tried;
    -Disabled Anti-virus, Razer Cortex, MSI Afterbunner etc.
    -Unchecked 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power'
    -Updated drivers

    This problem makes impossible to play games.
