Re: it's like my keyboard is high.

I had exactly the same problem with a Acer Travelmate last year, from the day I bought it. Eventually I found some kind of fix (maybe it was a BIOS update) from Acer and it has worked perfectly ever since. Sorry I can't remember exactly what, but you may want to go to Acer support web site and just update all your drivers.

I have two co-workers suffering sith the same problem on Acer notebooks and we are trying to hunt down the fix. If you Google Acer keyboard lag, you will find many reports of similar problems.

Re: it's like my keyboard is high.

Sounds like you use this quite a bit, don't you? I'd suggest that you may have actually worn out the keyboard. These things are built basically of plastic and heavy usage will cause wear and binding.
Hop this helps.

Try connecting the keyboard to a different laptop.
If the "lag" and the "missing" letters still occur,
the keyboard is the problem.

If not, try a different keyboard with your computer, to see if this "other" keyboard has the same problem. If so, then your computer, not your keyboard, is the problem.

There is a possibity in the system to change keyboard-type (not language): Start/Configuration/Keyboard - choose the right type. I think that the system still things the external keyboard is atached whils you're uising the built-in one - which seems to have different keycodes, causing this problem

Keyboard stuck in upper case

Is the caps lock light illuminated? If so, you might have to hold shift and hit caps lock to turn off the caps lock. This is an option for old typists who came from manual typewriters that you might have turned on by mistake.
