I own an Asus G71GX-A2 laptop with Windows 7 64-bit. I have been encountering a strange issue with my keyboard lately.

When holding down a key such as "W" in notepad for instance, it will repeat the letter for a short while, then as if I'd lifted my finger, it will stop for a moment, and then continue repeating W. If this sounds too vague, allow me to provide a more concrete example.

When playing a game that requires the "W" key to be suppressed to move forward (it's worth noting this problem occurs with other keys as well) eventually the character will stop moving, even though I still have my finger on the "W" key. This will then require me to lift my finger and re-press the key.

If this problem doesn't sound very severe, consider that it's been occurring more and more frequently as of late, seriously interfering with whatever game I am playing.

Additionally, it's worth mentioning that when I plug in my wireless Logitech keyboard to the laptop, the problem is nonexistent when using it for the same functions. No third-party drivers installed or anything.

Does anyone have insight into how I might go about resolving this issue? I apologize if my explanation is a tad wordy, but I must include every detail I feel is relevant so that I may effectively find an answer.

Thank you for your time.

Have you spilled any coffee or soft drinks on the keyboard?
The rubber membrane underneath the key might be cracked or damaged somehow

I haven't spilled anything that I can recall; the unit is only a little over a month old, and is in very good condition. Not sure if it's hardware related though, to be honest.

you could try reinstalling the driver for it, or blowing the keys out. if you know your way around the laptop, remove the keyboard, clean out the connector where it connects to the motherboard and reinsall it. Honestly though, if reinstalling the driver for it doesnt work then your aftermarket keyboard may be the best solution.
