My keyoard delays typing

This is a very odd issue, but not hard at all to fix. I had a similar issue in Windows XP. Now first of all, as with all of those weird and unusual Windows problems, it leads to the Windows Registry. Now, first a little disclaimer:

Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Cannot guarantee that problems resulting from modifications to the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.

Now on with the issue at hand.

First of all, open regedit by one of the following actions:

Windows XP/2003/2000 Users: Open the Start Menu and click on "Run." Then type "regedit" without the quotes in the dialogue and press the Enter key.

Windows Vista and 7 Users: In the search bar at the bottom of the Start Menu, type "regedit." It should appear in the search list above. Right mouse click it and select "Run As Administrator," then, confirm and say "Yes" or "Allow" to the User Account Control dialogues.

The rest from this point is pretty straight forward.

Click the plus sign or drop down arrow next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then the plus sign or drop arrow next to Control Panel. Look for the key which will look like a folder marked "Keyboard." There are 2 ways this entry might be causing an issue. If it is there, it is corrupted. The second way might be that the key is non-existant.

If the key is there, go ahead at this point, right mouse click it and click "Delete" and then "Yes." Now, simply recreate the key or folder only by right mouse clicking the Control Panel key and selecting "New" and then "Key" and name the key "Keyboard" without the quotes.

Keep regedit open for a test and do not close it yet. Make sure that you have the Keyboard key entry that you just created highlighted

If the key does not key does not exist, simply create the key or folder only by right mouse clicking the Control Panel key and selecting "New" and then "Key" and name the key "Keyboard" without the quotes.

Keep regedit open for a test and do not close it yet. Make sure that you have the Keyboard key entry that you just created highlighted

Now, go ahead and open Control Panel from the Start Menu.

For those of you in Category View, you want to click on "Printers and Other Hardware" and then double click on "Keyboard." For those of you in Classic View, you want to simply double click on "Keyboard."

Now, go ahead and set your sliders, then click "Apply" and then "Ok." Click back again on regedit and then the F5 key on your keyboard. 2 New string value entries should appear marked "KeyboardDelay" and "KeyboardSpeed" with numbers trailing them. Make sure that these entries are there, then, close regedit.

Go ahead now and look back at the Keyboard control panel applet and remember the settings that you just made. Now, restart or log off of your computer and log back in. Go back to Control Panel from the Start Menu and open the Keyboard applet again and make sure that the settings are where you left them.

This should definately fix the issue at hand and allow the settings to stay where they are. It is yet unknown what exactly may cause this entry to become deleted or corrupted, but, it happens every once in a while on some computers.

My hp pavillion dv6 track pad will not double click. please help

If you can right click, you can select all the double-click options, like Open. Or, click and hit Enter on the keyboard.

However, the double-click may have been inadvertently set to fast. Go into Control Panel and change the click speed in Mouse settings.

My hp 4520s probook's mouse pad got locked accidentally, and it's not unlocking by double tapping on the light button on the mouse pad. please help me with this asap.

First, try double tapping the light again. You may have just mis-tapped.

Next try restarting the laptop. Certain laptops re-enable the track pad on restart so long as a USB mouse isn't connected.

If that fails, navigate to the Mouse Settings on your PC and re-enable it there. If you have a USB mouse you can use that. If not, you can use the keyboard. Windows Key will launch the Start Menu, arrow keys can highlight options, Enter will click on them, Control+Tab and Control+Shift+Tab will switch tabs (in a window that has tabs).

In Windows XP and 7 (and probably Vista), Mouse Settings is located at Control Panel > Mouse > Settings.

Keypad problem in lenovo laptop

hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend try to do this solutions it will help you.
Problem: You Type One Key, and a Different Character Appears Onscreen This is an interesting problem with four possible causes:
  • You really didn't type what you thought you did. Look at your fingers. Now look at the screen. Now look at your fingers again. Is everything the way it should be? Good!
  • If you have a programmable keyboard, you or someone else might have reprogrammed the keys so that they don't do what they normally do. Refer to the keyboard's manual for instructions about how to reprogram the keys.
  • If you're in a specific software program, some programs let you reprogram the keyboard from within the program. When you exit the program, your keyboard should be back to normal.
  • It's possible your keyboard is broken. Try hooking another keyboard up to your system and see how it works.
Problem: Your Keyboard Isn't Responding Properly What do you do if you hold down a key and it repeats too fast or too slow? Windows lets you make adjustments to your keyboard via the Keyboard Properties dialog box.
Just open the Control Panel and select Keyboard, and then select the Speed tab. Adjust the Repeat Delay and Repeat Speed settings to your liking, and then test your settings by clicking in the blank box and holding down a key. After you have things adjusted to your liking, click OK.
Problem: Your Wireless Keyboard Isn't Responding Properly This is the same issue as with a wireless mouse—your batteries are getting weak. Replace the batteries in your wireless keyboard to put things right.
It's also possible that you're experiencing interference with some other wireless device. Try moving your wireless receiver or the offending device, or turning off the other device while you're at the computer.
Just try these solutions friend. Hope I helped you Good luck
