I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi all.

I come now with a new problem. I pretended for some time I did not care, but that is now making me pull the hair from my head.

I installed something (which I did not pay attention to at that time and I don't remember what it was) and too many other programs after that (programs I constantly use, and therefore I don't want to get rid of). If I roll back my computer to an earlier time to dismiss this problem, I would be uninstalling all those valuable programs I am talking about.

Since the first installation, when I select in excel (using the mouse), when I am typing in Word, Internet or whatever other program, things stop working. There is a delay in response. I type, but I don't see what is just typed on the screen, because the computer freezes undexpectedly, and then it comes with the whole thing at once. In the meantime, I could have made a mistake in typing, but because I couldn't see it right away on the screen, I cannot be sure if I made it, and have to wait until the computer 'defreezes' back and keeps working along.
The delay doesn't last too long, but it's frequent and recurrent. So it's always there. It is a pain in the neck, and I am being very decent to say it.

It is not the Ram, because I have plenty of it. It is not the speed of the chip, because my computer is not old. It is not a wrong installation of the programs I installed because everything works fine at the end. It is just that freaking delay that re... Read more

I'm so new to this, and have no idea how to fix the typing delay/skip problem after I updated to windows 10. I have scanned my computer and there was no spyware/malware/virus detected that would result in this problem.

Is there any help out there? Thanks!

I am a Wikpedia editor and about a year and a half ago I encountered a problem where when I type something in the edit box, it would take a second before the words actually appeared on the screen. This only happens in wikpedia. So I scanned with Malwarebytes and got a malware and quarantined it. After that the issue was gone. About a week ago the problem came back. But I don't know if it's malware again, because Malwarebytes and Avast couldn't catch it. Please help me get rid of this annoying problem.

This happens quite often and usually a reboot fixes the problem but I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issue.

Once my laptop has been running for a while (day or two) I will notice that when I am pounding away at the keyboard typing there will be a delay until the characters actually show up. Sometimes I am 8-10 characters ahead of what is being displayed on the screen. It makes it real hard to understand if I have typed the correct letter/characters sometimes. If I go to tap the Backspace key a few times to delete it's delayed as well.

When I reboot the problem is gone. Very strange problem and I am sure it's a bug or something that causes a memory leak of some sort somewhere. Call me crazy... LOL!

Anybody else experience this?

I'm curious as to whether yer keyboard is a USB one. Could be the USB port is underpowered or something. You could try plugging your keyboard into another port (if it is USB). Do not plug it into a USB hub. Try plugging it directly into one of the rear ports on your computer.

Hello everyone ! I have a slight problem with my wifes typing on web pages and that seems to be the only place it takes place does not happen in word or any other software installed just the world wide web. she is using IE 8 due to the fact she will not let me upgrade here system from XP so anyway whenever she starts hammering away over there in he corner the text input on the web page does not keep up with her input on the key board. She has to stop for 2 to 4 seconds and wait for her typing to appear on the screen . Have not had the chance to disable all add ons yet as she always seems to be there when I have a chance to work on her system. I have though run several virus scans and malware scans and so forth and so on but nothing really showing up to amount to anything. Everything goes in fine in word and whatever else she uses just seems to be the web . I hope I have been clear enough to explain the situation so if more info is needed I will do my best to offer and continue to research on.

I just got this HP Pavilion x360 (the convertible laptop/tablet) last week, and I've been having troubles with the keyboard. On certain websites, such as this one, there is no typing delay. However, on Facebook, Facebook Messenger, and Word Online, the characters I'm typing DO NOT appear on the screen at the same time that I'm typing them. It either freezes for a second and then quickly inputs all of what I've typed, or it just takes a few seconds longer for each key I press to show up on the screen. I've checeked to make sure Filterkeys isn't enabled and that no extensions are running in the browser. This happens in both Microsoft Edge and Chrome. P.S. when I was registering for an HP support account, I just realized that the @ key and the " are switched. So shift+2 gives me an ", and shift+" gives me an @ sign. Please help! I really like the computer other than this horrible typing lag.

Hello there, this problem is not extremely important, so by all means, if someone else needs to be helped first, no problem.

When I open firefox 3 or the IE Explorer, and I procede to type in the search bar of any search engine or just the address bar there is a slight delay in when I type to when the typed shows up on the screen. Just wanted to know if there is any remedy to this situation.

Steps I have taken....

1. I have just rebounded from a devistating virus attack. Thanks to your forums and Simon I was able to get things cleaned up.

2. I am using clamwin as anti virus

3. I am always scanning my pc for malwar via spybot, ad aware and other such programs as well.

If you need a greater detail for what I have done in reguards to the virus there is probably a way you can link to my other posts in the other forum.

Let me know, and thanks again in advance.

So it may just be a coincidence. I just installed Windows 10 on my PC. And now when I try to type in yahoo mail it only lets me type one letter at a time. Then I get this twirling blue icon indicating it is working on adding that ONE letter to the message. I have never had this problem before.

Has anyone else had this problem. And if so, how might I get yahoo mail to accept letters typed as I type them?

When I restart or turn on my lap top after it's been off for a while it will only give me my background picture. No icons, no start menu at the bottom, nothing. Until I try to run a new task from the task manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL is the only keystroke-type command I know) Then everything starts appearing as if nothing was wrong. When I type online there is a huge delay between when I push the buttons and when they appear on the screen. My virus scans show nothing is wrong. (I use trend-mirco's firewall and virus scanning products and also use firefox and I don't know if trend-micro only works on internet explorer or not...) I tried defragmenting to try and speed up the typing ting but it did no good... I don't know what is wrong but I do know that I can't get the updates from the updates.microsort.com website even though they are in the trusted websites thing in internet explorer (which is what I used to try and get the updates because you can't get them through firefox) and every time I open the computer (even from stand-by) I get a message from trend micro telling me it is stopping unauthorized changes and that change is some sort of "program Library Injection" that has to be blocked about a hundred times in a minute for the first 2 to 5 minutes of the computer being on.

Title I wanted to use: Windows XP SP3: Slow Startup / Boot: Black Screen Delay & Delay after logging in

For some reason I can't preview my post when I use this title: I have tried removing all the punctuation, including the &, which doesn't work and have tried other titles with the same character length, which does work.

Problem Begins Here:

When I turn on or restart my computer, the boot up time from the time I press the power button to the time the final icon on my desktop loads is slow. I am not too concerned about the time after my desktop is shown since I have several items to run at startup.

The two areas of concern are:

1) After the XP logo is shown, my screen goes black. This lasts for about 17 to 19 seconds. I don't know when this started as I rarely restart my computer. The problem is worse if I startup in Safe Mode. It's about 1 minute and 10 seconds before I see anything on the screen, and another 40 seconds before something else is shown on screen. Note: In order to not to have to waste time pressing F8 and choosing Safe Mode, I enter safe mode by specifying so in msconfig. The options I chose were /SAFEBOOT and Minimal.

2) After I login, there is a delay of about 30 to 45 seconds before the desktop is shown. Windows stays at the login confirmation screen during that time. This I feel has happened recently.

After the Windows 10 April 2018 update, my Lenovo Yoga 3 14 laptop is not starting immediately. It's not boot-up delay, it's a device start-up delay like after pressing the power button, just keyboard back light blinks once and nothing will happen and it's taking 35 to 40 seconds (earlier it's 1 to 3 seconds) after pressing the power button to show Lenovo UEFI screen along with Windows loading animation (this boot-up is quick like earlier versions about 5 to 7 seconds). Re-installed the complete OS (clean install) and re-installed the BIOS (Version BACNA0WW and BIOS date 07/15/2016). But nothing helps. Changed to earlier version of windows with clean install (the one with creators update, but issue not resolved.) Formatted complete drive and cleared all partitions (including OEM) and installed on a fresh partition, re-flashed BIOS, but nothing helps. Later I thought about hardware issue. Opened laptop, removed display connector, cleaned and attached, but issue not resolved. So, it's not a new Windows issue and It might be a problem with BIOS and it needs to be updated. Since my laptop is mote than 3 years old, Lenovo probably don't bother about updating this BIOS. Any solution that I missed?Thanks in advance.

Hi all,
Very strange problem with my IE7 on Win XP system (Fujitsu Siemens laptop Xi1546 btw).

Basically, so far ive only noticed it on those 2 sites but essentially the problem is, certain links on the site, when clicked, do nothing.
Youtube for e.g. the videos always have a 10 minute delay before they load. Regardless of time of day, whether im using GB youtube servers, or the kind of video, OR even if i change go home and use my home internet, same problem: 10 minute delay before the video loads. This must mean a setting which has gone awry? Metacafe works fine and it also uses Shockwave so why does my laptop hate youtube?
Also if i click to change servers on youtube, e.g. choose youtube UK, IE just 'loads' the page but stays stuck. Other websites work fine so its not a temporary lack of internet thats causing this.

Facebook is really bad and has the same 'loading but stuck problem.' I post messages on walls and it stays stuck but if i click profile, that loads instantly and it says ive posted..? I cant goto the groups page, or events, it just stays stuck and wont load. ive had this problem for about a couple of months..

overall i think its a setting for my IE, but what do you think? really appreciate help, really fed up.

The typing arrow move by its self while typing. for example if I'm writing a sentence the arrow suddenly move to beginning of the sentence or middle etc.

example : *I'm typing now* - * I'm tynowping*

its like I'm clicking there but I'm not!

I'm using Lenovo T400 and I updated all the drivers.

A:Moving typing error when typing

Dear Luna333,
Welcome! Sorry for the delay. Are you using a mouse OR the Touch pad(laptop). A moving cursor is quite common for laptops. I guess there is a way to disable the touch pad and allow use of the mouse.

Regards and best wishes,
sreedhav

A:Windows XP Boot Delay..

3-4 minutes to boot to a desktop seems pretty slow. Mine is something like 50 seconds and specs slower that yours.

Might first want to do some basic file cleanup, virus and spyware scans.

I have googled this problem and can't seem to find an answer anywhere else, though the problem itself seems common enough.

Yesterday I must have accidently deleted some files I shouldnt have via disc cleanup because after that my display was limited to the lowest possible resolution and 4 bit color. Unfortunately, I had to break out the recovery CD ::shudder:: and reinstall my mobo drivers and video card drivers.

That seemed to fix the initial problem but now it takes windows about 4-5 minutes to boot. It stalls out on the "Windows is Starting Up" Screen. I have gone into msconfig-boot.ini and lowered the timeout to 3 seconds. Any other suggestions?

P.S. I also ran a virus scan today and I am clean in that department.

Hi,

I recently run SysInternals Autoruns.exe and under the Logons tab, I unchecked a lot of crap (except the top three entries, which are system required), I always thought these processes would only load when hitting the Welcome screen, but I've got a strange problem.

My Windows boot is now 1-2minutes longer, it sits at the Windows loading screen with the rotating bar and the disk seems to do a seek and stop, and repeats this. I've ran chkdsk and no issues. Maybe the problem is not related to what I've done in autoruns.exe, but I need to resolve this issue.

All I can think of is running bootvis.exe (which, If I remember correctly, will indiciate what area of your computer the delay may be in), but is there some other means to identify exactly what file/driver is causing the long delay at the Windows boot?

Thanks for any help, its appreciated

You might try re-checking all the things you unchecked and then remove them one at a time. Time consuming I know, but should point to the problem area.

Hello,
I have a little peculiar annoyance with Windows 7. About a year ago I was into fps gaming and kept a close track of my reaction time using various online reaction testers: Human Benchmark - Reaction Time Test
Sound vs. Sight Reflexes
http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbo...n_version5.swf
etc.
I used to average 150ms, but after installing Windows 7 it rose by about 60ms if not more. Back then I tried looking for solution, but in the end just reinstalled my Windows XP. Fast forward to today and I just bought a new laptop, which came with Windows 7, and tried doing some tests again only to get atrocious 230ms. Obviously I couldn't have gotten so slow, so I checked on my desktop pc and I got an average 180. I am still using my several years old mouse, but I tried the tests using AutoHotkey script for mouse click, so I don't think it's a problem with my hardware. Furthermore it doesn't seem to have an effect in game (I have a few reaction drills, which I wouldn't be able to do with the extra ms). If anyone of you who have 2 systems with different operating systems could check or better yet provide their insight on this little problem I would really apreciate it.
Thanks in advance!

As the title suggests, I am seeking a software solution that will add delay to the audio of a Windows computer. Specifically, Windows 8.1 x64, but I imagine the software architecture will be fairly similar for this specific use across modern Windows platforms.

To be clear, I would like to hear the audio from my computer after a delay. (not any specific input or output - I want to delay the audio that I hear from the computer).

What could also work would be the ability to delay any individual program's or process's audio stream. Modern Windows separates audio streams in its "Mixer." Utilizing this mixing architecture and specifically delaying one of those channels/programs would be a good solution, so a program that does this would be great to know about. I've done some research on this issue, and I keep running into dead ends (literally, dead links). I suspect this is because modifying or utilizing a computer's audio output stream directly can lend itself to illegal uses of such audio streams. (If you recall the "What U Hear" architecture that got removed from sound cards around the turn of the millennium, any strong-arming or censorship of such programs would fall in line).

Obviously, my desire is just to delay the audio as it is playing. Any help is appreciated.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop.

So, I've had this issue for a LONG time, and am really sick and tired of it. Here goes.

I often reinstall Windows XP (like every 6 months) to get rid of all the program baggage and registry overhead that is accumulated during normal use. I found this to be the only way to get the computer back in tip-top shape. Anyway, sometimes after following my fairly systematic install checklist, I encounter a sudden delay in the startup. And once I encounter the delay (by up to a minute), I can never remove it without completely restarting the XP install.

So let me explain the delay. The system will boot through the Dell Intro screen, and then then Windows will quickly run through the autologin, display the background image, the intro sound clip will play, and then the system will just sit there. The only thing shown is the background image - no bottom toolbar. The hard disk is barely being used. It basically appears like the computer is doing nothing. And then, after 30-60 seconds, it suddenly starts hitting the hard drive and the menus and desktop items appear.

So, I've tried to narrow down the problem. So far, I've reinstalled XP again, only installing some basic apps like Norton, Adobe Reader, Itunes, and MS Office. I disabled all non-Microsoft services, and have disabled all secondary startup Items. Now, with this minimal installation, the delay which I've described is much lower than normal, but it is s...

I purchased an HP p6340f with a Realtek integrated soundcard. I use the system for online Karaoke and the soundcard was working poorly. I upgraded to a Creative PCI Express Extreme Audio SoundBlaster card and have been experiencing a .5 sec delay on voice to speaker, even when I am off line...impossible to sing to.
I understand through other forums that this is a big issue on upgraded soundcards especially SB and Window 7.
Has anyone found a fix for this?

Hi Folks
When I have multiple windows open, there appears to be a slight delay in the tabs in the task bar closing although the window itself closes immediately.
I hope this makes sense.
Because of this delay I often end up closing IE windows in error.
Apart from this my system appears to work well and is not otherwise sluggish.

Any suggestions or ideas?
Thanks

Listen everyone who intends to install windows 7 in a desktop Pc!

If you notice delay during setup, log into Bios (usually pressing Del key)and deactivate 3.5 Floppy A support and everything is ok then. (Laptop pc?s do not have this problem because they don?t have Floppy Drive)!

I spent a long time trying to install my windows 7 and i want to help all of you!

Hey Everyone:

Recently installed Windows SP2, a new mobo (Asus K8N-E Deluxe), new graphics card (Geforce 6800 GT), and new CPU (Athlon 64 3400+). Everything works well, but one annoying problem: my computer delays at the "Windows is starting up..." screen before it gets to the log-ins. Delay meaning about 45 seconds or so. It never did this before, and I have nothing really running in the startup menu, so I'm wondering what the heck it is looking for. Any advice? It eventually gets going, but the delay is annoying. I got this upgrade so everything would run FASTER! Alas, my wife thinks I'm an ***** for upgrading now. Any help would be appreciated so I can tell her it was all worth it.
 

A:Windows XP Startup Delay

Tell your wife to chill and you too, what's a few seconds , as long as everything is working.
If you are really bugged .You can run a bootlog and investigate, or run msconfig and turn off running programs one at a time to see which one is slowing down the Boot process.
SP2 also adds some security items one could be the windows firewall ,If you use a different one turn that off.

PC manufacturers that expected to get their hands on the final version of Windows Vista yesterday will have to wait a couple more weeks for the OS, according to sources familiar with the Microsoft's plans.The software giant originally targeted yesterday for Vista's RTM (release to manufacturing), but a last-minute bug that "took most of the Vista team by surprise" caused an unexpected delay, said Ethan Allen, a quality assurance lead at a Seattle high-tech company that tests its products for Vista.Allen said the Vista team discovered the bug, which "would totally crash the system, requiring a complete reinstall", in Vista Build 5824 on 13 October. The team fixed the bug a week later in Vista Build 5840, he said, but it delayed the delivery of the OS to PC makers.The team is now targeting a new date of 8 November, for Vista's release...pcadvisor.co

Every time I go to control panel system and scroll down to the bottom it say "Status not available"
But a second later it say windows is activated ?
If I go back after the first time it still shows activated

Is this delay normal when going to system after startup,
Does anyone else see this delay in listing activated ?
Happens on both lappy 32 and desktop 64 bit :/
Very weird seems windows should be able to remember if it's been activated or not or genuine or not
Cheers.

A:Windows is activated delay :/

I've seen it a lot, doesn't seem to be a problem. I just consider it being Windows reading itself before populating the panel. Also see it when right-clicking Computer/My Computer in the Start menu and choosing Properties.

When I start up my computer, the superbar takes like 40 minutes to actually work. And like right now, I closed a window about 10 minutes ago but the icon is still in the bar. I can't open it up or anything, it's just there.

EDIT: And when I try to open new windows, they don't appear. It's like it's not refreshing or something.

I have tried to fix this but to no avail. This is a list of what I have tried (I probably forgot a few things):

- run IE9 with no add-ons
- run IE9 in 64bit mode
- tried the above 2 in safe mode
- deleted the registry keys corresponding to Spybot, even though it's not installed
- uninstalled and reinstalled IE9
- "regsvr32 actxprxy.dll" in an admin cmd
- reset to default settings in the advanced tab
- tried with GPU rendering on and off
- ran Malwarebytes and found nothing

I have a Q9400, 8GB RAM, Radeon 6850, and a SSD for my W7x64 Ultimate; so my computer is blistering fast. Any more ideas? Thanks

Doubt you want to hear this, but my honest solution to the problem is to use either firefox or chrome instead.
