W button on keyboard releases late

Ok so I don't really like playing game since start of 2012. But when I play games, when I hold the W button for a pretty long period, the games still thinks I'm holding the W button for a short period of time.

Anyway this happens in any games. Need For Speed, Counter Strike, Assassin's Creed, etc.

My laptop specification, just in case if needed:
Acer Aspire 4750G
Intel Core i5 2410M @ 2.30 GHz
Nvidia GeForce GT 540M Cuda 1 GB
8 Gigabytes of RAM

Its probably because the key is getting stuck and the keyboard is sending a false single to the computer saying as much. It would find another keyboard to test it. The the W key lags with the different keyboard it might be something else. But test the keyboard first.

I think hardware is not the problem... it happens in games only. Not other applications like Microsoft Word, Photoshop, etc.

Okay I think this shouldn't be answered, I found the solution myself. I updated my BIOS. Thanks

That's odd. I would have thought is was an issue with "sticky keys".

Okay so I think if I launch applications or games with high CPU usage would make the keyboard lags.
