    computer wont register my keys


    ive had this keyboard for a while, its a dell one which came with my computer. the problem is that it wont register some of my keys. for example, i will type "the quick brown fox jumps right over the lazy dog" while holding both shift keys. the result is this:
    HE QUIK BROWN FO JUPS RIGH OER HE LA DOG

    this, as you can see, its a major disadvantage when i need to press multiple keys while gaming as some keys dont register. so im looking for a new keyboard, it must be illuminated, it must be able to press more than 8 keys at a time, and it must be lower than $40. if anyone can please help me search for one, id really appreciate it. i looked at newegg and some other sites but all of theirs are very expensive. thanks in advance

    Don't hold both shift keys to type sentences and you should be alright.

    i said i needed it for gaming not typing, it was just an example of what my keyboard does. frets on fire for example, i need to hold 5 keys at once and i cannot do that.

    The key phrase might be "I've had this keyboard for a while."

    no its not. the correct phrase would be my keyboard does not have an n-key rollover, and i am looking for one that does.
