I just tried downgrading to BIOS 53 and it didn't help / fix this.
What I find strange with this is how it just started on this laptop. The laptop was working fine for a few weeks. For me the problem started (or when I first noticed) around Monday. I wonder if some Windows 7 auto update did something. GOing to go look at logs.

Ok, I just resolved it on my laptop! (or its not happening to me now)... I went into Windows System Restore and did a system restore back to a restore point on 25-Sept. After it rebooted, I went into WoW and when I started to type my username I got numbers (bad sign) but I just toggled numlock a couple of times and that issue went away (I had not seen that behavior before the system restore). I then logged in, and the asdw keys now work as expected in WoW for movement (as well as the rest of the keyboard commands).
So by what I can tell, this was caused by a Windows critical patch upgrade this past week. Lenovo needs to do some research and find out what caused this specifically (if I have time I may start installing patches one at a time to see if I can findout which one caused this). I'm not happy about having to turn off critical patch updates, but for right now, I can't let the PC do auto updates or I'll be back in this same situation again.
So some of you other guys with this issue, give this a try and report back. I'm hoping this works for you and we can figure out which patch caused this and maybe Lenovo can address it (or pressure Microsoft about it).

Sadly, I don't have a restore point past 9/30 so I am stuck with this update-downgrade. I've been all over the forums, and not only have there been no solutions, but it seems like Microsoft has yet to even acknowledge this as a problem.

Same issues with World of Warcraft and java based games! Keyboard was working fine until one day it just went nuts! Lenovo needs to make there computers more robust. The restore point option works but is not a solution! I am upset at Lenovos lack of quality.
