FWIW, I have had this happen to me in games before. Not BF4, but multiple others. Never really thought too much of it as it didn't happen all that often.

You're not using a KVM by any chance, are you? I've seen weird interactions when using certain combinations of keyboard/KVM that cause pretty much the behavior you're describing.

I stopped off at my local PC World to see what they'd got in the way of gaming keyboards, and found the Roccat Arvo. Ok, only the arrow keys are backlit, but it's a different take on the "tenkeyless" design, 'anti-ghosting', very compact and most importantly of all... really quite cheap! (£38)
So I read a couple of (good) reviews and impulse-purchased it.
And BF4 is still doing the same darned thing!!!
3 times in 2-3 hours of play I got stuck, but resolved it by lifting off the keys and trying again.
So either the game really does have a bug, or Roccat's claims to anti-ghosting aren't... reliable.
