Windows 7: keyboard lag/browser slow

keyboard lag/browser slow

After my system has been up for a while I start to see some things get slow or sluggish. When I type the response is slow, what I type shows on the screen a sec. or two after I type it. Web page graphics are slow to come up. The overall speed of the system does not seem to be effected, just browsing and typing. Could this be a sign of failing or bad memory? If not that what could it be?

Also not sure if this is related but sometimes cut and paste do not work in Open office Writer.

Make sure you're using latest video driver for your card and that device manager does not show it as "standard vga."

Turns out it's ONLY Firefox that is exhibiting this problem, anyone else having any trouble with Firefox?

I am having this problem across applications, the keyboard is slow and I cannot type fast. I have checked the video driver and is fine. Any other suggestions as to how to solve this problem?

Browser Running Slow
Last week my internet browser (FireFox) started loading very sluggishly almost at dial up speed. I ran Norton and it found no problems so I then reset my browser and still had the same issue. I then did a speed test and it said my Ping was 18 but my download speed was 0.4kbps and upload was...

Slow browser, slow internet, random audio ads: virus?
So yeah, I've these problems for the past couple days. My browsers (Opera and Firefox) used to load pages quickly, but now they're painfully slow. Opera lags and freezes often; Firefox doesn't, but it still takes a very long time to load pages. I'm also getting these occasional "invisible ads,"...

Is Your Browser Slow?
If you answered YES, then probably you are using Internet Explorer. I used IE for ten years or more. This past weekend the baseball site I frequent forced me to switch due to an overhaul of their site. I am now using Firefox 11 and it is much, much faster. If yours is slow, give Firefox a...
