Windows 7: World of Warcraft Keys Locking Up

World of Warcraft Keys Locking Up

For a while now, I've been having problems with the game not receiving keystroke from a certain keyboard. After using the same keystrokes frequently many times (using shift + "number" for keybinds, and "WASD" for other walking and other abilities, I'm finding that whenever I'm holding down a certain key, it doesn't recognize any other keystroke.

For example, I want to run forward at a right curve, I would press "W" and "D". But, I'll press "W" and then "D" but I'll keep moving forward, and the error button will play (obnoxious beeping noise)

Another more flagrant and more problem causing one is when I'm holding down shift for a keybinding to use a spell. For example, I'll press Shift, then press "2" so I use Heroic Throw, but the "2" isn't registered in the game, but I'm getting the obnoxious beeping noise again.

Is this a keyboard error? The game might be causing the problem but once the problem is started it has this problem universally on all programs. Any help?

It sounds like a ghosting problem. That keyboard can't really handle simultaneous key presses.
