Hello all,
I have a weird problem.
My keyboard doesn't fully work,but when I play Dota 2 and the laptop heats up(It maxes both CPU and GPU), the keyboard starts working..
Any reason?

A bad connection somewhere is really the only reason I can think of why something will only work when it's heated up (or cools off). Try a different keyboard, they are pretty cheap to replace. Most on ebay are in the $10-20 range.

Sounds like a connection issue. Heat expands things, if you have a lose connection, it heats up, the contacts expand and keyboard works. Reseat your wires from keyboard to the motherboard.
