I recently purchased a Pavilion 500 Gaming Keyboard and I encountered a ghosting issue with the "W" button, for instance: when I hold W with another button like A or D the spacebar won't work, and so the other way around- if I hold W with sacebar non of the other buttons would work if I press them. what this eventually means is that I can't jump while moving diagnoally or jump while moving forward diagnoally.
It is stated on the product's box that there is an "Anti-ghosting with N-key rollover" function for the keyboard and above there is a picture highlighting the WASD keys, so this issue shouldn't exsist.
In fact one of the main reasons I chose to by the product is to make sure this problem doesn't occur.
I checked it in multiple games and is seems the problem is only with the "W" button. individually, as all the buttons it functions fine but in the case I explained it doesn't. I tried changing controls from WASD to ESDF once and the problem didn't occur so I'm certain it's only with "W".
What could be done to fix this issue? I had it since the first use of the product and it's really bad... if there's nothing to do I may just return the product with a complaint to the seller for a refund... Thanks.
