    well you need few things revealed first that might hint you where the problem is:

    -do you get device disconnection sound when keyboard stop working ?
    -are you the enthusiastic type that move their keyboard even a little whilst play ?
    (might indicate your mobo usb ports are getting loosy and/or keyboard wire getting damaged)

    -did you try removing the check of "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" in power management of your USB devices ?
    -are you using a conservative power plan ?
    (might indicate your system poorly recognizes the keyboard then tries to save power by cutting it off it)

    -does control alt delete cease to work as well ?
    -does your keyboard comes with a designated driver console running in system tray ?
    (some games specially mmorpg/multiplayer may recognize keyboard tray console or using apps that were made by "auto hot key" a cheat mean -used for auto fire and scripted stunts - and would neglect their input)

    -do you have languages other than english installed ?
    -would the problem rise on utilizing alt+shift ?
    (some games may have problems with certain languages as an input so you might want to remap those keys not to be used)
