I've found that the keyboard I'm using interrupts my gameplay by cancelling input from my letter keys whenever I hit the "shift" or "ctrl" keys.
This means that when I am walking forward by pressing "W" and want to run by pressing "shift" simultaneously, I stop dead. This also happens when I am walking forward and I press "ctrl" to duck.
This functionality is a real downer in my gameplay. I would appreciate help from anyone, thanks.

Sorry to hear your having a problem gaming with your keyboard
It's, sadly, a fairly common problem "gamers" have, it's called ghosting. Simply, the design of typical keyboards don't allow for combinations of multiple keys, ...as you suggested serious gamers opt to buy keyboards that have an anti-ghost feature (a hardware or software design that allows for multiple combinations of keystrokes).
HP, until recently, was offering a really nice gaming keyboard, mouse, and mouse pads. I was lucky enough to pick a set up, ...and am extremely happy with them.
FYI, for others: The gaming mouse and surface are currently still available at HP's store, the keyboard isn't but a nice Logitech model that would help is.
