I have a HP Laptop which I use to do homework and sometimes game, but recently my keyboards having a typing delay or something. This only happens when I play games which use the wasd keys alot. I also have mild hyperhydrosis (sweaty hands) which may have something to do with it. So heres the problem: When I press the "w" for instance, it sometimes get stuck and continues to press w. I have to press the w again to stop it. This mostly just happens to the wasd keys but sometimes other keys as well. I think it may have to do with abit of sweat getting under the keys, but does this normally happen when water gets under keys?  :scratchhead:

Any liquid ingress to the keyboard will cause erratic keyboard behaviour, particularly perspiration which is salty & therefore very corrosive. Also laptop keyboards are not the most robust items so repetitive and probably heavy handed use of a few keys will probably cause damage. I think that you should investigate the availability of a replacement keyboard, & also consider using an external keyboard for your gaming - so if you create the same problem again hopefully the damage will be to a more readily replaceable (& hopefully cheaper) external keyboard.
