Latency with keyboard--shift /space/backspace lagg w/ PS2 or USB

I have an HP Compaq Presario home PC (Feb.2006) with the typical Sempron 3400+ 2GHZ processor and 1.28GB ram and the ASUS A8AE-LE (Amberine M-GL6E) motherboard. This problem exhibits as a ''slow response'' to UP SHIFTING (caps) and / or forward or backspacing when typing text in any mode wheather it be text in ''office'' or typical e-mails via net. I have tried 3 different keyboards (2--PS 2 & 1--USB) and ALL keyboards exhibit this same and ''very irritating'' problem. When shifting for upper case I (usually) have to hold the the shift key down for several seconds before it shifts to upper case. I find myself forever going back and having to ''re-type'' and/or change figures to the selected upper case modes. I have tried ( I think) ''everything''! The computer for the mostpart works ok otherwise--**except for (1) recurring ''file/path'' error which gets corrected with my registry cleaner, but returns ''every time'' at boot-up, but I don't think this is a related problem to my keyboard latency issue??? ANY help or leads would be more than greatly apprecited!!! PLEASE HELP !!!!

Three possible likely causes in this order:
1. driver needs to be reinstalled
2. sticky keys is on
3. spyware/virus
after each step test the keyboard in notepad ( start, all programs,accessories, notepad.)
if it only happens in one program then it is the program causing it.
-----------------------------------------
follow these step, from quickest to longest:
sticky keys:
click start, control panel (if background is not white with a bunch of icons, click "switch to classic view" on the left, then click "accessibility option", under the "keyboard" tab make sure all boxes are unchecked".

Driver:
start->right click my computer, select properties, click hardware tab, click device manager, expand "keyboards", then right click the name of your keyboard, select uninstall->click "ok" to the warning (it may tell you that you need to restart the computer to complete the uninstall) if so do it. When the computer loads up it may tell you to restart again, if so do it. If not thenwait until all loading is complete then test the keyboard.

spyware/viruses:
These will kill system performance in general, however, it appears your complaint is solely about keyboard latency, so this most likely is not the case

Compaq sr1630nx cannot go into standby mode due to keyboard device driver


If you can't find an updated driver for the keyboard, it may be that you have a USB keyboard. Typically USB keyboards will not allow the PC to go into standby.

Keyboard error of pc p4 compaq


Check that it is indeed plugged into the purple PS2 port on your computer, if the keyboard is USB then try alternating ports. Some-times just by plugging it into another USB port it can work.
Also it maybe that the keyboard has died, try a friends keyboard on your computer to test it. Try do as much as possible before purchasing replacement parts.

Take care!

What kind of connection does your keyboard and mouse use? you may want to try a known working keyboard through usb. Then try a usb. Isolate the problem and go from there.

Trying to install windows and at the boot screen have my keyboard and mouse plugged in windows doesnt see it.. I tried the USB keyboard and nothing I just recently replaced the MOBO using anti-static wrist...


I have seen this before, and the best answer I can offer you is some Motherboards are better than others when working with usb devices while no OS is in place. I actually tried using usb / to / ps/2 adapters and it still would not recognize the usb keyboard in a couple of instances. I had to get a ps2 keyboard for the installation of windows. After windows was installed I hooked up the usb keyboard and it worked fine. (just speaking from my own personal experience here)

Sorry I do not have a more technical answer for you but I'm almost 99.9 % sure this should work, providing there is no problem with the ps2 keyboard port on the Motherboard. I have never failed to install windows unless there was another hardware based issue of some kind, but never a problem with a known good ps2 keyboard.

Just double check everything is seated properly and try to get into the bios setup, if you cannot use the usb keyboard for this, you can try the usb / ps2 adapter, but if that doesn't work either then use a regular ps2 keyboard. That should work fine, then after setup is complete, windows is installed, then your usb keyboard should work fine.
