Having keyboard problems. If I hold a key down it will type the key but you have o hold the key down for 3 or 4 seconds and thn go to the next key. I am using the on-screen keyboard to type anything. It isn't the keybord- I've tried another one- same problem. I tried other USB ports etc. Anyone know how to fix this?
This would be what model Dell and which operating system? I'm pretty good at fixing computers, but quite poor at mind reading. emoticon.BigSmile.title
I'm no mind reader either...:emotion-2:
But, open the Keyboard control panel. Click the Speed tab and see what happens if you shorten the Repeat Delay and increase the Repeat Rate. (NOTE: This is based on XP, but Vista and Win 7 may be different.)

Sorry - I suppose a little more info might be helpfull...Dell Dimension E510 with Windows XP (I know it's probably 4 yrs old). Keyboard works when I play Madden EASports 2001, but not on applications with Office (word, Outlook etc.). Could I have deleted something?
