Problem with my keyboard; can't consistently press two keys at once

Pressing W and A/D at the exact same time, one would expect to move diagonally in a video game, but in my case, around half the time, it locks me into a certain key.

For example, if I press W and A at the same time, it'll randomly decide to either move correctly, or lock me into only strafe or only forward. It results in verrry clunky gameplay at times.

I actually returned 2 keyboards thinking it was keyboard-related. Upon the 3rd keyboard screwing up, I decided to plug it into another PC and see that it works just fine, meaning it's related to my computer and not my keyboard.

Any ideas why this could be happening or how to fix it?

It's called anti-ghosting .... (different brand call it differently)... You should buy keyboard with such a function (usually they are more expensive).
Why does the keyboard work on another computer though?

I can tap both keys just fine on my other windows 10 pc but not this one
