I had the same problem with my Dell Inspiron 8600. I stumbled upon this thread and followed the advice. I am pleased to say that the suggestion of uninstalling the keyboard driver and restarting worked great. Thanks!

Go to my computer icon, right click, properties>hardware tab>device manager, then lok down the list to keyboard, click on the + sign and right click on your keyboard and select uninstall.


Restart the notebook and the driver will automatically load again and should type as normal.

I will see my friends online ,type a message ,

This could be a browser problem as sometimes this happens to me when using Firefox. If you use Firefox, switch to Internet Explorer and see if that works. If Internet Explorer, then try Firefox. Its not a problem with your laptop, just some minor software issues. Worst comes to worst, you can reboot your system using the Dell recovery discs, but shouldnt have to go that far

Ibm thinkpad help fast

Next time the computer gives you a stop error, write down all the information it says about the error (even if it is a bunch of crazy numbers or letters). Go online and search the internet with the words Stop error and the information you wrote down. Or with the words Blue Screen Of Death and the information you wrote down. You should be provided with information about the stop error that explains what the problem is. Or post the stop error along with your question on this website and we can try to help you find the solution to your problem.

Key stroke problems when using E-Mail (Only)

You probably use an online mail system. If you were to use Outlook or Outlook Express this would not occur, because they are not online. This basically means, when you type a character to an online system, it must travel to the remote server, then be echoed back to you. The time can vary between keystrokes widely, depending on the number of hops, latency and other factors. Offline email does everything on your PC then transmits a complete email message at one time when you send it. The speed of your internet connection can influence this greatly. Most DSL connections are fast enough that this should not happen. If you are using a telephone modem, it will happen regularly.

Sounds like a driver issue. My touchpad goes crazy sometimes and I have to reboot, especially when it gets a little wet on the touchpad.
