SOURCE: Typing delay

After my whinge I did find the solution on the Dell forum support.
IT is a software conflict with Dell Media Centre. THe final comment on the page I found (do not have the link at hand) was from a Dell technician, his comment was to disable the PCMService in msconfig. Obviously Dell will not advocate to uninstall their own software but that was the other solution made by the other parties. I hope it works for you too!

SOURCE: delay on keyboard when using with cubase and reason

this is because of the lantency of your sound card and your driver settings.

with 2 seconds,
that sounds like you're using a MME driver for your card.

try to change the driver to ASIO (if possible),
if not, change it to directX

you can do that that way:

- Open up Devices > Device Setup > VST Multitrack

- Drop-down the ASIO Driver settings on the right side of the screen

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.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.

Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

After i log in a cant use the keyboard for typing or inputting text

1. Go to System Preferences (it's usually in your dock)
2. Click on Keyboard.
3. Make sure your key repeat rate and delay until repeat is set to fast and short, respectively.
4. Open TextEdit.
5. Try typing there. If this still does not work, I suggest you to bring it to your nearest apple store since there might be a defect on your laptop.
7. Beside your battery/energy saver preferences and date would be a small box, click on that and it will show you SHOW KEYBOARD VIEWER for you to use your mouse/trackpad on.

The keyboard is super sensitive making it impossible to type without many many errors. Is there any way to harden the keyboard?

In your control panel, you should be able to access keyboard settings and adjust the repeat delay rate for keystrokes as well as the delay before the repeat starts.
