    Only 'W' key stucks while playing games.

    While playing games, W key have been started to stuck. I mean; when I stop to press W key, my chracter still moving forward and after 2-3 seconds it automaticly stops moving. This situtiation only happens when I press W key for 2-3 seconds. Only happens in games and only happens for W key.

    Things I tried;
    -Disabled Anti-virus, Razer Cortex, MSI Afterbunner etc.
    -Unchecked 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power'
    -Updated drivers

    This problem makes impossible to play games.

    I think you have dust or other dirt, caused by wear, on the contact surface for W-key. This is very normal behaviour if you play a lot.

    Try another keyboard using same connection type as your defect one, to verify it is a hardware issue. If that solved the problem, then either disassemble the defect keyboard and clean it with electronics cleaning solution, or get a new keyboard.

    Depending on your keyboard type, it could be beyond repair and you need to replace it.

    According to the system data, you're on a Acer V3-772G laptop. Do you use the keyboard aswell? or a seperate board? And what games are you referring to exactly? Basic information, but important nonetheless. :)

    I cleaned W key but nothing changed. Although I have a theory; I am using my laptop's keyboard and under WASD keys there is a GPU and when playing games this part of keyboard gets hot. With heat something inside W key can become sticky and that maybe casue W key to stuck. I don't have a seperate keyboard but my first job is find one and testing with that one. I saw this stuck problem with Dying Light, Elder Scrolls Online, Kİngdom Come Deliverance.

    That's a good theory. It does explain why it happens only with one key, and only while playing games. But is the heat-transfer that bad on the laptop? Try lowering the graphics settings and enable Vsync - or any form of framerate cap - and see if the heat gets better underneath. Yes, definitely try out a seperate board too.
