SOURCE: Delayed keyboard response on Dell Inspiron E1705 Laptop

Is the mouse response sluggish as well during these times?

In most cases, it means the computer is busy with another process. The keys you press stay in the keyboard buffer until the CPU has time to process them.

Check your CPU busy time when this happens. In Windows XP, press ctl-alt-del to start the task manager, the select the processes tab to see if one process is tying up the system (by % of CPU), or press the performance tab to see CPU usage. If it is pegged at close to 100%, something is tying up the system.

If the system has lots of ram then just upgrade to windows 7. you can look online for password recovery but it will cost you money and sending them the info from your system.

I uninstalled my web cam on my ASUS K501, a while back , thinking I will never use it....I was wrong!...Ive tried almost everything to get it back...with no using windows 7-64 bit, and...

ok, but is the webcam listed in Device Manager ?

and by 'tried everything' did that include going to the ASUS website and downloading the driver for the webcam ? (make sure to specify that you have the 64-bit ver of win 7.)

PS : need correct model number. Per their website...its a letter-two numbers-two letters. so it's K50i(something) [ j-maybe ?]

here is the J-model page (not the Best-Buy one.)

It lists four different drivers, three specific camera drivers, and a generic one (the second one down.)
