    hi , not sure if this issue is under hardware but just glad if it can be fix in anyway. i have problem with my 'w' keycode, whenever i press and hold the key it repeat 'wwwwww' perfectly, but when release, it continues repeating for certain amount of time then stop. it seems like the keyboard sensor has a slower respond towards a released key.. so is this hardware or software issue? any effective solution?thx

    first, see if keyboard is clean, get a can of compressed air and use it on the keyboard, look to see if there is something on the key making it stick.

    second, try another keyboard, if the problem does not appear, then it looks as if your keyboard is bad.
