Keyboard running really slow

I'm having a problem with my PC running really slow. Getting into different applications is fine however when I want to type (anywhere on the system, word, email etc) it take around 3 or 4 seconds from pressing a character on the keyboard for it to appear on screen.

Can you give me any tips?

Go to configure on therun program and set your computer to a earlier date when your keyboard was working. I had the same problem I ran a virus check and found nothing than I reset my computer to a earlier date and BANG it works great.

I would inspect the running processes on this computer. It most likely has nothing to do with your keyboard.

try this

it's a free tool from MS to inspect them.

Acer aspire 5600awlmi going slow

Assuming stock LT go to start run and type msconfig and click ok. On the general tab select Diagnostic Startup and click ok, it will ask to reboot and seleck ok. After the reboot see if it is operating normally.

If it is working normally then some application is causing the problem. You can selectivly choose to launch one app at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Most likely is antivirus set too agressivley or spyware. Might consider a tool like spybot to clean the system.

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

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.
