Windows 7: Keyboard missing letters only while on internet

01 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Keyboard missing letters only while on internet

I have a fairly new Desktop computer (Dell) and within a few months the keyboard seemed to 'stick'. When I would type emails on hotmail, or post comments on facebook etc.. letters would constantly not show up, even though I was typing them.

I originally though the keyboard was the problem. I bought a new one. Still happened. Decided to try out a keyboard from an older computer (which had never had problems) and that one did the same. I've tried 3 different keyboards, all do the same thing.

I also notice that while typing on Word, I have absolutely no problems at all. Seems to be whenever I'm on the internet.

If anyone has any ideas of what might be causing the problem as well as a possible solution it would be greatly appreciated!!!


My operating system is windows 7 64 bit

I have had that happen even here on these forums. It's like the keyboard strokes are faster than the internet connection. And I am a slow typer

Maybe there is a keyboard buffer that needs to be increased ? I remember that from DOS.
