Dell Inspiron 1300 Keyboard Lag

Hello
I'm having trouble with the keyboard on my Dell Inspiron 1300. Unless I type real slow, it keeps missing letters out. This happens in word, online when instant messaging and whenever I type anything - it's like it can't keep up and I'm not a particularly fast typer!

I've trawled the internet for a solution and have even booted the machine up from scratch but it's still the same - any advice realy appreciated!

    Thanks - tried to find it but no joy. Is it worth me runing the utilities disc that came with the machine?

    Hello, I've just bought the inspiron 1501 with damaged keyboard buttons. Then replaced it onto used one taken from the inspiron 1300. And the problem is that by mid-rapid typying there are diffrent letters missing, as well as blank fields (space).

    I have the same problem with missing letters while typing. I have the laptop for 2,5 years, and this problem occurred one month ago. Please advice how to repair.

There is a program that is bundled with Dell machines called the Dell Media Experience. It runs on startup and has been known to cause issues with keyboards and typing speeds etc..... I found that by turning this off via MSConfig the problems associated with my keyboard went away.
Hope this helps.
Start - Run - MSconfig - Start up - Untick PCMService. O.K and restart.

You are most likely having an issue with your keyboard driver. go to Support.dell.com and try to find the 1300 keyboard driver.

While on the log on screen, in the lower left corner, there should be a blue square with a circle in it. Click that and enable the "Type without the keyboard" an on screen keyboard will appear, and click the letters on that for your password

When I type on my keyboard, the pointer skips around. I can be typing on one line and all of a sudden, the typing is in another place.


hello, This happens because you are landing some part your hand (palm) in the touch-pad when you typing. which activates the touch-pad and makes sudden movements in the pointer.
This problems for lot of laptop users, unless you can get use to prevent the hand from touching the touch-pad, the only option is getting a USB keyboard where you can plug in without any drivers and type without any trouble.

Using Acer keyboard and Acer Veriton desktop. Keyboard misses out letters I type and doesn't seem able to keep up with me when I am typing. Hence, trying to do a typing test will result in a decent speed...


Try connecting the keyboard to a different laptop.
If the "lag" and the "missing" letters still occur,
the keyboard is the problem.

If not, try a different keyboard with your computer, to see if this "other" keyboard has the same problem. If so, then your computer, not your keyboard, is the problem.

Check your ease of access settings from the control panel. Make sure you don't have any keyboard and mouse settings that make for slow stroke response.

It's like my keyboard is high.


Sounds like you use this quite a bit, don't you? I'd suggest that you may have actually worn out the keyboard. These things are built basically of plastic and heavy usage will cause wear and binding.
Hop this helps.
