Lenovo Y520 Keyboard Multiple key issues

Hello, i have an issues, i play mmorpg and i noticed on my new laptop lenovo y520 that i can't press multiple keybind at the same time.

 

i will explain : 

 

  • I have to press Z to make my character move forward in the game so i press the Z key.
  • I have to press ALT+X at the same time to cast a spell on the game.

ALT+X keybind will work very fine when i don't press Z if i try to press 3 keys at the same time (Z + ALT + W)  (to move and make the ability) that simply doesn't work which is something really annoying for a gaming laptop.

 

Does anyone have a solution ?

 

I hope someone can help.

 

Thanks

Re: Lenovo Y520 Keyboard Multiple key issues

I had a problem with my Y520 keyboard where sometimes it happened that the e,f,g,h and F1-F12 keys were not functioning. I sent it back in service and they changed the keyboard and it works fine now. Not sure you have the same problem though

Edit : 

I tested everything, it looks like it happens only with Z+ALT+W & S+ALT+W.

 

Anyone knows that if there's a native key binding that could block this combinaison ?

 

thanks

Re: Lenovo Y520 Keyboard Multiple key issues

As far as I've seen, the keyboards in laptops still use the PS/2 standard bus. This supports about 3 simultaneous keystrokes (I believe it actually does 4). Case-and-point, it definitely sounds like a defective keyboard. I would suggest sending it in for a warranty replacement.
