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.

I'm working on a Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop with Word 2003. When I type " I get @ appearing and vice versa - they have exchanged with each other. What have I done?


Did somebody remove the "key-caps" and switch them, as a "prank" ?
The order of letters on the keyboard is: EXCLAMATION, AT, OCTOTHORPE, DOLLAR, PERCENT.

Or, check the "keyboard input language". Windows allows for different keyboards, such as Norwegian and German, that have different keys in different places on the keyboard.
Switch to "US English".

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.
