Ok, i've noticed this for a while. When i'm playing games or something online, i can't use more than like 3 keys at a time. If i try to crouch while moving diagonally forward/left, it won't let me. I have to press Ctrl+W+A, but i can't strafe left and it gives me this beeping noise.

Is there a way for me to turn off the key limit (or whatever it's called) in XP?

I don't think you can hold down 3 keys at a time on any keyboard on any computer. I've only been able to hold down on 2 at a time in a game.

Also you might have some accesible features on. To make sure they are off do this
  • Click Start
  • Click Control Panel
  • Click Accesibility Options
  • First uncheck any of the boxes on the left, then...
  • Click Settings under "StickyKeys"
  • Un checkmark "Use Shortcut"
  • Click OK
  • Click Settings under "FilterKeys"
  • Un checkmark "Use Shortcut"
  • Click OK
  • Click Settings under "ToggleKeys"
  • Un checkmark "Use Shortcut"
  • Click OK
  • Then click the Display tab
  • Click Settings under "High Contrast"
  • Un checkmark "Use Shortcut"
  • Click OK
  • Click Apply
  • Click Ok
