I am using a Thermaltake Challenger Prime keyboard. When I am playing games if I hold CTRL down and try to move with specific arrow keys it wont work. Pressing BACK and LEFT arrow keys or BACK and RIGHT, it will only do one or the other. Pressing FORWARD and LEFT or RIGHT works fine. I saw on the forums someone else had trouble similar and you suggested trying another computer so I took it over to my parent's place and tried it on their machine and has same trouble.
I recently purchased a second Posideon Z keyboard when the first one I purchased for my Linux box worked so well, I had to get a second for my gaming/programming rig. Everything seems to work great on it, except when I am programming. I have a tendency to lean pretty heavy on CTRL key combinations when I work (CTRL-S, CTRL-Z, etc) and I've noticed that it appears that the key doesn't always work when used in conjunction when another key. At first I thought it was a driver issue, but now I am leaning to the idea that the ctrl key is bad. The behavior I'm seeing is that when I hit CTRL-S, rather than sending the command to the application, an 's' is typed. Then I'll hit ESC, and hit CTRL-S again, and then the application will save. I thought it was just that key combination, because I had not seen it any other key combination before, but then last night, I saw it when when trying to undo something (CTRL-Z). I don't see the issue on my Linux box, but I've not done nearly as much programming on it, and I rarely hit CTRL keys on it. I'm tempted to switch machines in the interim, but I thought to check on support, see if there is something I can do, rather than send in for an RMA. Any ideas?
