Windows 7: When Typing There Is a Delay

When Typing There Is a Delay

This happens quite often and usually a reboot fixes the problem but I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issue.

Once my laptop has been running for a while (day or two) I will notice that when I am pounding away at the keyboard typing there will be a delay until the characters actually show up. Sometimes I am 8-10 characters ahead of what is being displayed on the screen. It makes it real hard to understand if I have typed the correct letter/characters sometimes. If I go to tap the Backspace key a few times to delete it's delayed as well.

When I reboot the problem is gone. Very strange problem and I am sure it's a bug or something that causes a memory leak of some sort somewhere. Call me crazy... LOL!

Anybody else experience this?

I'm curious as to whether yer keyboard is a USB one. Could be the USB port is underpowered or something. You could try plugging your keyboard into another port (if it is USB). Do not plug it into a USB hub. Try plugging it directly into one of the rear ports on your computer.

In what applications does this occur?? Is it periodic or constant once it starts?

It may be that you have autosave set to run every 5 minutes and it is causing the lag. I recently had that happen with an email application.

I had that problem my last PC. Sometimes characters would take a second to appear or they would continuously replicate themselves. It was a memory module going bad. he memory module may also be unseated if that is the cause.

I found solution for this. I noticed that my network connections both wifi and LAN are active. Since I am using the LAN connection in my office, I disabled the wifi connection, I tested the delay on Google Chrome and sometimes on Microsoft Live Messenger - it works, no more delay. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Typing lag/Mouse lag on any program

I just notice this issue on my office computer is so anoying, I just installed adobe masters pack and after restart bang the lag starts, so I am assuming that some process or adobe services is causing the computer to lag, is not just the mouse but the keyboard too on any webpage on either ie or firefox, both are up to date with patches and software I don't want to be paranoid but I have experience this type of issues when someone remote into the pc while being used by other user, or with keylogger softwares could be a registry issue but adobe is well known for installing unwanted programs behind peoples back with the purpose of data mining.

I have noticed this on both my home (VAIO) and my work (Lenovo) laptops. I type a pathetic 34 WPM and I still get a lag and/or characters are completely missing. The VAIO is a Core i3 and the Lenovo is a Core i5.

One thing they both have in common is integrated graphics. I have a friend who has the same exact Sony VAIO VPC-S with same RAM, only she has the Nvidia graphics and a core i5. It doesn't have any keyboard lag, smooth as a baby's bottom operation.

So my investigation suggests that something is wrong with the Graphics integration on the CPU in the Sandy Bridges. Can everybody agree on this?

None of this sounds hardware related. It just sounds like:

a) Your computer is crapped up with malware
b) It doesn't have enough memory to run all of your applications you have open
c) It has failing memory
d) It needs to be defragmented
e) There is a rogue process running that is consuming way too many resources
f) Some combo of all of the above

What antivirus solution are you running?
