    Is there anyway of increasing the number of keys that can be pressed at the same time? The limit of 2 can get annoying in some games. If you press more than 2 the computer just beeps.

    you should be able to do at least three at a time. for instance, ctrl + alt + delete. anything less than that is probably a limit of the program.

    i used to get that on my old keyboard, got me a logitech usb and i can press 5+

  5. Yup my brother had a problem like that too. Except it only was a problem when he combined the Left Arrow key with the Up arrow key. When he tried to move forward rotate left and shoot it wouldn't work. Forward, rotating right and shooting worked fine! :confused: He tried like 3 different keyboards all with the same problem and finally the 4th one which was wireless worked?! Still not sure what was going on...

    I guess it's got (partially anyway) to do with the wiring matrix in the keyboard. If it's "badly" made the keyboard can't determine what keys are pressed if you press more than, say, 3 of some keys.

    It's a teory anyway. :) Could be drivers too.
