My keyboard is slow. Everything else, programs, etc, works just fine. Is there a driver I can install to fix it?

    Slow meaning that when I type it stays at least 5 to 15 characters behind the keystrokes. All buttons respond, just "late". It is the same everywhere, for all programs. I did try hooking a USB keyboard up but it wouldn't work at all. That is when I closed it down and went to sleep. I will try again later tonight.



    I do a lot of writing so you can imagine having to wait between partially written thoughts is enough to make it almost impossible.

    I have exactly the same problem, but I found the cause of it. My battery is dead(reached the end of it's usable life) and I don't know why it's causing this keyboard problem. Removing the battery solves the problem.

What do u mean by keyboard is slow?? Is it typing slow or the buttons dont respond.
Did u try different applications like notepad, word, emails, is it same everywhere??
If possible try using a usb keyboard and check its performance.

I would try to first check to see if you have any other programs running in the background. I have the same laptop and the same issue, and when I check the task manager sure enough AVG is doing a deep scan. Try disabling your antivirus.

Lenovo Touch pad Stopped working


If you're positive you didn't unplug or rip anything while installing new USB ports, trying checking/updating or rolling back the drivers for the touch pad. Installing new USB ports could have mis-configured something and disabled or modified your drivers for the touch pad.

Bluetooth aspire 9420


Hello,
Please do the following steps...
1. Download the bluetooth driver - 'Bluetooth_Broadcom_6.0.1.3500_VistaX86', its the one for vista but works for win7. After the drivers installed sucessfully the bluetooth still didn't work as the bluetooth hardware wasn't turned on, pressing the bluetooth button to the left of the keyboard didn't do anything for me.
The driver is available from the Acer website below under the Vista section, just click through the categories notebook/model/OS/drivers etc until you reach it.
http://global-download.acer.com/GDHome.aspx?SC=PA_6&LC=en
2. Next download Dritek Launch Manager - 'LaunMgr_Dritek_1.1.1.3_VistaX86' (this utility controls the assignment of shortcuts/applications to the other buttons on the keyboard) from the Acer website above, it'll be under the applications tab instead of drivers.
For some reason the Launch manager zip also includes another zip of the drivers for the Nvidia Video Card, I can't see why they're bundled together but it is Acer after all.
After the launch manager had installed the dedicated bluetooth button worked just fine first press, but bizzarely this application doesn't allow you to assign the bluetooth button, just the other 4 buttons above the keyboard.
But it clearly fixed my issue so it must have installed something which brought the bluetooth button back to life.
BTW the Launch Manager doesn't even have to be running for the bluetooth button to work.
Hope this fixes your issue.

My toshiba satelllite l455d-s5976 ive done everything and it still runs extra slow


A common problem for slow computers is conflicting anti virus software. Do you have more than one installed on your computer? like say Avast and Microsoft security essentials etc.? If so try disabling or uninstalling them. You can also use a program called CCleaner available for free from download.com (<--click this link) and use it to clear out junk files and more importantly fix your registry. A lot of registry errors can really slow down a computer. Hope this helps!

Computer was working fine but slow uninstalled


possibly you uninstall your wireless driver try checking in device managerunder netwrok adapters for the driver if you don't see anything saying 802.11 wireless network adapter then you will have to install the drivers again for your wireless card on the system. ^_^ your drivers should be downloadable in the website of your OEM ^_^

Slow processsing


Probably caused by Norton. Please get CClean, a free download, and clean your compluter. http://www.ccleaner.com/

Then defrag your drive.

These things will help a little.

Check what is running int he background and remove what ever you dont regularly use.

Computer speakers do not work


Maybe you need to reinstall the driver for your sound card as what ever you installed may have currupted the original sound driver.
I hope this helps.

Computer is sticking and slow


HI
All you need to do is to run an Anti-Spyware program on it. Normally it will make it go faster.
Also you might want to try to limit startup programs meaning to get the laptop to start the minimum programs possible.

You might want also to backup your personal files and scrap everything, do a fresh installation.

Hope it works fine

cheers
