keyboard doesn't register w with a s d e q

by Elesar82 / October 20, 2014 12:39 PM PDT

So been gaming with this keyboard for about a year now and never really had a problem until last night when i found out that my w key started not functioning with ONLY the 5 buttons around it (a, s, d, q, e) while pressed at the same time but all other combinations work with it

I tried updating drivers, moving it to a different usb port, and cleaning it out with dust-off but nothings seemed to work

any help would be much apreciated
