As the title says whenever I launch a game it just bricks my keyboard. 1 or 2 presses register, act as though the keystroke is being held down then completely stops responding. I heard a couple of disconnecting sounds too one being my keyboard and I am unsure if theres another thing disconnecting ive unplugged everything but mouse and keyboard and headset to see if anything else is the issue, including a test without the headset. Ive ran troubleshooting, ive unplugged whilst in game and it is still unresponsive. When I quit the game and unplug then replug the keyboard works fine again. I have also restored to an earlier point, I havent factory reset because thats quite the effort. I am just stuck as to what my issue is. Ive also tested with a secondary keyboard and im having the same issue

Did the system restore go back to before there was a problem?
I fully restored my PC back to factory settings and it's not fixed my issue, I am hoping it's not a hardware problem, because it's working normally when I use chrome or notepad, only gaming is my issue.
