Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
I often get delayed response on my Dell laptop. The characters will complete, but several seconds after I type them. Any suggestions?
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.
