Hey David, I had the same exact problem with my keyboard when I bought my Gateway computer in 2007. It didn't register some characters and the lag time was horrific. I ordered the same exact keyboard from Gateway( I was in the warranty phase still) and when I got the new keyboard it did the same exact thing!!!!!!!! I had to buy a different keyboard from Target. Just get any other keyboard and it will work. It's the keyboard beleive me. I even took it apart. Don't waste your time and just get a different brand.

When I type one character I don't get the correct character.

Assuming you're using windows, go to Start - Control Panel - Regional and Language options - languages - Details - Settings and set the PC language and keyboard setting.

Click the "Add" button for choices of available languages. Click the "Properties" button for choices to include Dr. Dvorak’s keyboard layouts for two-handed typing or single-handed typing with either hand.

    Repeat keys and back space has pause when typing

    - Go to Control Panel -> Keyboard - We have options where we can configure the repeat delay and repeat rate - To configure sounds you can go to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Sounds Tab - You can configure sounds related to Windows Operations here P.S. Although the settings I have specified here are meant for Win XP (when control Panel is in Classic View), they would remain almost the same for all Windows OS.
