Re: When typing I can't quickly repeat characters.
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.

icon on the desktop. Click the "Change a Setting" choice in the left column. In the window that appears, double-click the "Keyboard" icon. This dialog box handles all settings for your current keyboard. Another path to the control panel is to click the "Start" button at the bottom left of the screen. Roll the mouse pointer up to "Settings" and click "Control Panel."
Reset the character repeat settings. The speed of character repeat and the delay before repeating starts is adjustable with sliding level indicators. Click on the adjuster and hold your finger on the mouse button to drag the adjustment left or right.
Change the cursor blink rate. A faster blink helps to locate the cursor while moving it with the arrow keys. Change the blink rate by dragging the slide to the left or right for slower or faster.
Enable the keyboard to accommodate one-handed typing or foreign languages. Click on the "Input Locales" tab near the top of the dialog box. 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.
Identify and correct keyboard malfunctions. Click the "Hardware" tab on the dialog box. The current keyboard will be listed under devices. The functioning status of the keyboard is displayed, and a troubleshoot button is active for use anytime. Make a first attempt to resolve keyboard problems by clicking this button.
- 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.
