Windows XP Pro-Keyboard Repeat rate & Keyboard Delay rate

Q: Windows XP Pro-Keyboard Repeat rate & Keyboard Delay rate


Could you kindly advice as to how can I find out the keyboard repeat delay and repeat rate on Windows XP (Pro)?

The information provided in Control Panel-->Keyboard Properties only states whether the delay is Long or Short and whether the rate is Slow or Fast.

I would like to find out the rates in s/ms in order to carry out KeyStroke Repetition experiment.

Looking forward to your kind reply.

Preferred Solution: Windows XP Pro-Keyboard Repeat rate & Keyboard Delay rate

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Keyboard repeat delay, repeat rate??

Hello Rik,

You can find it in the Control Panel (large or small icon view) under the Keyboard icon. Yours may look a little different since this is driver specific, but it should be similar.

In Control Panel - Keyboard, I set the keyboard repeat rate and repeat delay to desired values, but when I reboot my XP Pro SP2, the settings always change back to some strange default. As far as I can tell, these settings are kept in the user database and refreshed when logging in as a user, and are supposed to be saved when logging off. Any clues on how I can get my settings to stick?

My laptop's info is down below; I pasted it in from the fn/esc method.
The problem:  I have my keystroke repeat rate set at about 2/3 of the way to the right on the sliding scale that displays in Control Panel.  But after using the computer for about 5 or 10 minutes, the keystroke repeat rate becomes extremely slow.  I have to keep going into Control Panel to set the repeat rate back to where I want it.  Why does this happen?  And more importantly, of course, is how to I stop it from happening.  It's driving me crazy.  Thank you.

Hi kevinf,

Try BIOS update:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-74983

Taken from the "Summary of Changes":- "(New) Improve key input response."

If you have Win 7 64-bit, then I suggest using bootable version instead:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-74984

Hello all, So I am having a very annoying issue with my P1 xeon. The keyboard repeat rate is resetting to extremely slow on a frequent basis, usually when computer comes out of sleep. I have to go back into keyboard settings, and even thought the repeat rate is showing as high, I have to move the slider to get it to follow the windows settings. Is this something that I can change in BIOS so that the lenovo BIOS is not constantly changing to a slow repeat rate. I tried looking around but could not find anything. Thank you for any help.Ozren

The original setting of my Keyboard repeat rate was set at about 2/3 of the way toward Fast and was satisfactorily fast. Suddenly it slowed down to a mere crawl and and moving the Repeat Rate all the way to Fast has no effect on it, whatsoever. I am running IE 6.0 and my OS is XP Pro.

Recently on my main Win XP Pro machine, the keyboard repeat rate keeps dropping to the slowest setting. I have to open Control Panel - Keyboard and move the slider back over to the right.

Saw a couple of old posts about this, but no definitive answer.

I'm guessing that perhaps some program is doing this, but I sure can't figure out which one.

As with most of my computer problems, the MS Knowledge Base is silent on the issue.

Anyone have any ideas?

Windows XP SP3 problem. My keyboard repeat rate seems slower than it used to be. Fiddling in control panel, moving the slider past halfway doesnt seem to have an influence on the repeat rate.

I'm facing a very weird problem with Windows 10 on my new laptop. Every time I boot up or even wake from hibernate, my keyboard repeat rate gets reset to the slowest setting. I notice this only when I start using word or email.

The weirder thing is, in the keyboard settings window the setting would always be shown as "Fast", but actually it would be slow. To make it fast, I have to drag it to slow and then to fast again.

Hope I have made myself clear. Can you please help with this?

Hello all. I have been annoying with the DIFFERENT key repeating delay and slow repeating rate of the DELETE key on my Yoga 910. I have disabled all the accessibility settings (filter keys, sticky keys, etc.). My keyboard setting is in this picture It seems like, every keystroke except 'DELETE' will have 0.5 sec delay before repeating, while 'DELETE' key will always have 1 sec delay, regardless what the repeat delay is. I wonder why the 'DELETE' key behaves differently from the other keys. How can I make DELETE key consistent with the others? I have uploaded a video. You will find the input key and backspace are fast and the delay is shorter than delete.

A:C940 cannot save custom keyboard repeat delay

Hi @eliot_lovell,
Regarding the issue, I made a research on it and yes windows does always reverts it back so the only way to permanently solve this is to make some changes under the registry. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to give steps that would Modify or Hack the registry. If you want to proceed with the registry mod, make a backup of your files and registry values.

I posted a similar query to this some 14 months ago, but nobody could provide a solution, so I thought I'd have another try, hoping that some of you guys might have solved it in the meantime.

I don't think that it is confined to W2K, since I remember the same phenomenon in W98, but the repeat rate on the keyboard properties, Speed tab slows down of its own accord. I have it set to the fastest it can go and everything is hunky-dory one minute, then the next its in slow motion. I notice it when I keep my finger on the arrow key and the cursor takes its time moving character to character, a bit like a movie dropping frames. My own solution is to have the keyboard properties icon on my task-bar, so that whenever it happens, the Slow-to-Fast repeat rate bar is just one click away, a click on the fast end followed by Apply and everything is back to normal. It has happened twice today, which made me think of my old post and wondered whether anyone has discovered a permanent solution.

A:Repeat Rate

I have a suggested idea...

I have not ever experienced this myself BUT if it were happening to me I would experiment with the following:

Find out what file it is that the shortcut points to. i.e. what exactly it is that controls the keyboard rate. Then change its permissions so that all users and system are all denied access to modify the file. That should work.

I don't think that it is confined to W2K since I remember the same phenomenon in W98, but has anyone else noticed the repeat rate slow down? One minute everything is hunky-dory, the next you're trying to use the arrow key and it's taking ages. My own solution is to have the keyboard properties icon on my task-bar, so that whenever it happens, the Slow-to-Fast repeat rate bar is just one click away, a click on the fast end followed by Apply and everything is back to normal. It has happened three times to me today already, so I do wonder if anyone has discovered a permanent solution.

First off, this may be a rather peculiar question and a problem most probably haven't come across or thought about. This thought is confirmed by the fact that I've been searching for the answer for a while now, but have been unable to find one (I've been searching for a while).

Anyway, my question is as follows.

When I hook up two keyboards to my computer (either a PS/2 keyboard and a USB keyboard or two USB keyboards, both combinations produce the same effect), and press and hold two (different) keys, one on each keyboard, the repeat rate of both the keys is sped up and becomes less evenly spaced. For example, when I set my key repeat rate to two seconds with FilterKeys, and I press the A key on one keyboard and the B key on the second keyboard, the repeat rate for both keys becomes 0.5-1.5 seconds, instead of 2 seconds (so I mean I get an A every 0.5-1.5 seconds and a B every 0.5-1.5 seconds, I don't mean the total repeat rate is sliced in half, which would seem logical since the input is doubled).

I also tried this on my laptop. The effect (using either a USB keyboard and the laptop's keyboard or two USB keyboards) is even stronger. When holding down two buttons, the repeat rate is sped up greatly, the intervals of repetition nearly vanishing.

So, can anyone tell me why this happens? I am sure the use of solving this problem is limited, but I'd just like to know why my computers exhibit this strange behavior.

A:Key Repeat Rate Sped Up using Two Keyboards

This only happens when you press 2 keys on different keyboards at the same time? or when you attach the 2nd keyboard, but don't press anything, or both?

I have tried a number of search terms here, but don't find this reported anywhere-- so here goes nothing:

The machine: HP Pavillion dv8000 (portable), x86, 512M RAM
OS: WIN XP Pro v.5.1.2600 SP2, build 2600

The issue:

I fire up the machine and go about my business. The system works with my chosen keystroke repeat rate (very high) which correctly works after the machine booted. Fine.

But at SOME point-- and it seems to have something to do with simultaneously having PhotoShop, Firefox, Wordpad and the imagining software from my Fuji digital camera open at the same time as Norton is running a "live update"-- all of a sudden the keystoke repeat rate "sets itself" to "snail's pace." I go to the control panel > keyboard and find that the slider control for the keystoke repeat rate is now all the way over to the left (super slow). I reset it to a fast rate, apply, and the system works normally again.... maybe for weeks, maybe for a few minutes.

I am yet to actually reproduce the conditions that cause this "quirk."

If I reboot the machine while the keystroke repeat rate is "slow" like this, the system comes back up with my "fast" preset.

I doubt this is a "security" issue... but it's certainly ANNOYING, when it happens.

Is there legitimate software that examines such things as keystroke rates, and "makes the determination" that it needs to be reset, in order for the software... Read more

Hi All,

I got this problem, my cmd prompt typing rate is very slow.
1. This happened after i have enabled my HyperThreading in my system through some hacking of boot.ini and bios setup,

2. Installed some patches with MS automatic update.

3. And turned off some services in my system.

Now it's like about only 20% of the speed of the previous cmd prompt.

What gives


A:cmd prompt typing repeat rate slow

It has been confirmed that it is due to the hyperthreading, once i have turned it off in the bios, it is back to speed.

So if my router is reporting my max line rate is 82 mbit/s but the actual rate getting to the router is 55 mbit/s then what does this suggest ?

An Open Reach engineer did visit to check everything was where it should be both at my home and at the street cabinet. Resulting in moving the router next to the socket where the line comes in to the house, initially the speed was getting around 65mbit/s after he had organised things better.

He did say though the connection may go slower or faster over 10 days, its been a month now.

My ISP is Sky and I am subscribed to Fibre Pro (the best they offer) - their estimate to my house was 70mbit/s.

Since then the highest rate I've seen is 59mbit down and 19mbit up.

So since I've subscribed to the highest speeds Sky will offer me I doubt I'm getting capped.

The internet from outside has been cutting off each sometime around 9pm, maybe theres a bad line somewhere between my house and the cabinet ?

What do you guys think ? What are some possible ideas what's going on ?


A:Router reports much higher max rate than data rate

Shared line problems. It's pretty rare for you to actually get the speed advertised. There's a lot that goes into an internet connection, like the link speed for the devices. Applications that monitor, or check traffic can of course slow it down. But the most common cause is a shared line. For example:

You and 12 of your neighbors order the 100mbit service. Your ISP uses a 1Gbit line for all of you. You can get 100Mbits, as long as 2 of your neighbors aren't using it at all, even if the others are using up all of their speed. But if all 12 are on at the same time, it balances, and some people get a drop in speed.

It's all pretty standard practice with ISPs. As far as the dropoff at 9PM, that's usually caused by a gateway/modem reset. That's when they renew their IP lease. Some even do a full power cycle as well. Check your modem/gatway logs at that time to see if it shows any information about reconnecting (usually the easiest way to tell is the time is incredibly wrong until it gets the correct time from the ISP)

Maybe it's different in the UK for the shared line. Maybe there's not a questionable cloud of "Up to 100MBits!!!***" there with some bullet points saying you won't always get it. But almost every time here, that's the case.

My router is next to the where the line comes in to the house with a short cable. The cable is a standard cheap one, so I tried a shielded twisted (rj11) cable (same length) and it actually made my speeds lower!

So I went back to the cheap flat cable.

My isp isnt capping me because their estimates were 70mbit/s and Im on their best service.
Dont know if this helps? (with custom settings)


From looking at my old speedtest results, I had 16 ping with my old ADSL connection.
Now with my new Fibre connection I get pings of 25 or 27.

Shouldn't fibre get a faster ping ?

A:Tuning SNR only increases "Max" rate but NOT current rate

so I tried a shielded twisted (rj11) cable (same length) and it actually made my speeds lower!

rj11 is a phone jack, not a twisted pair cable (shielded or not).

You are not going to be able to increase your speed, since that's controlled by your ISP or dependent on equipment on their side of the demarcation point. On your end you have everything needed to get higher speed, i.e. an Ethernet cable and NIC that obviously both support at least 100Mbps.

You may be able to get max speed once at 3:00am on a full moon during a leap year

I have a brand new Dell T7500 Precision Workstation running Win7 64-bit.  I have a MS Laser Mouse 6000 v2.0 and a MS Wireless Keyboard 6000 v3.0 using the latest Intellipoint/type drivers.  After I log into my user profile within a few minutes
the mouse pointer will lag behind the movements of the mouse making it virtually impossible to land specifically on a spot on the screen.  My keyboard is also delayed and as I type, characters are delayed.  It seems that there is some process
going on in the background that kicks in slowing the mouse & keyboard down.  How do I go about troubleshooting what might be causing the slowdown?  Batteries are new, dongle is visible and within 2 feet of both mouse and keyboard, and I
have also replaced the dongle.
Thanks all, very much.

A:Mouse & keyboard delay in Windows 7

Thank you Alex.  I tried all the steps in the kb article but to no avail.  I am currently using a wired keyboard and wired mouse and naturally, get none of the delays or lagging issues.  So, it is likely not some background process on
the computer but might be something in the area of my computer that is creating interference.  I tried changing the USB ports, the batteries, re-syncing and am using the most current Intellipoint/type drivers.  But nothing helps so, I think
that I will just stick with the wired devices.

I installed Windows 8 standard package a few weeks ago on a AMD FX-8350/Asus MBO, 16 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, 2x 1TB Seagate Barracuda configured as one 2 TB drive with Storage Spaces. It initially worked fine. Then when I installed a SSD optimization software from the SSD manufacturer, Samsung. I believe it was called Magician or something like that. It was a problem in that it slowed down my SSD, according to Samsung's own software, and it seemed to be the cause of keyboard freezing and/or major delay. I uninstalled it and the problem went away.

Now it has come back again. It seems to happen almost at random in any application. The mouse works fine, and never freezes, but the keyboard either has a large delay and the first character typed is lost, or it just does not respond at all. Closing the app, like IE10 and opening it again does not resolve it. Often the keyboard is still frozen.

I updated the graphics card driver to the latest from AMD. It is a Radeon HD7770. It seemed to help for a while, but it is back again. I can't think of any significant software I have installed, except perhaps the monitor calibrator, Spyder4Express. However all it should do is create a new monitor ICC profile.

The sad part is I had nearly this exact same problem with another computer years ago, and I cannot remember how I resolved it.

A:New Windows 8 Install - Keyboard delay and freeze up

Any way you can roll back to a restore point before you originally installed the program? Sounds like the program may have left stragglers in the system, a driver or a service or something.

For SSD drives and even regular drives I use Raxco Perfect Disk, I set it on a timer so that it optimizes my drives ever day starting at Midnight.

PerfectDisk Home | Raxco Software

You can try it out for 30 days. I say, restore to way before you ever installed the Samsoong software, and then install Raxco.

Look, here is what;s been happening. You installed 8 on the SSD and originally it was perfect. You installed the Optimizer and it slowed your puter up. SO now, unless you have tried to use the Optimizer in Windows, your drive MAY be about 15% fragmented.
And THAT will cause all the same problems as the Samsung program. It's possible that the Samsung prog was defragging all the time, cos you had a lot of frag.

So, run cCleaner to rid yourself of temp files, install Perfect disk, then set it to run EVERY day at midnight (or whenever you sleep). Tell it to handle not only you main files but also your Page-file, Hiberfil and prefetcher as well. and do at least one "Boot Time Defrag".

I've installed Raxco into at least 10 SSD systems, and it works great.

If you don't wanna install it, then just tell Windows Optimizer to run Every Day at midnight. But fair warning, Windows Optimizer was shown to have issues with SSD drives.

So I have an issue with the keyboard from a long time. I always hibernate my laptop and when I start it the leyboard is either really slow (the repeat rate is 0 and it barely moves) or it is as fast as the settings show. To fix this i have to manually go to keybaord settings and change the delay speed and then return it. I found a topic and one person made a script that everytime i logon to the laptop. The script does that change for me and I dont have to manually change it. However now I have another issue. https://gyazo.com/20653f7ac4e55e28866ecadb9bf24290 Do you know how to stop this from happening? It occures rarely but it is still very annoying.

Put a check mark to a box that says show restore points older than 5 days for more options. It will give you choices up to what point would you want to restore your system to.
- it will ask for a confirmation and it will reboot.

First of all.. I hope I got the right section.

And secondly, I'm not asking about how to change the repeat rates in the control panel and stuff.

Anyway.. this is my problem.

I think there's a problem with my wireless keyboard since normally.. whenever you hold down a button(take r for example), it'll go rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr until you let go of the button.

In my case however, it only goes rrrrr and stops. The number of letters changes everytime and the repeating just stops after a while(like, 1 second) even though the key is still held down. The same goes for other keys. Was wondering if my keyboard was screwed or I could 'save' it somehow.

Additional information would be..

Keyboard - Microsoft Wireless Elite Keyboard

Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance. =D

The letters й, с, ц and ы repeat themselves when I use the Russian Mnemonic Keyboard built into 8.1... that is, they appear twice when I press the key only once. It doesn't happen with the Russian Typewriter layout. Is anyone experiencing the same thing or does anyone know of a solution?

My apologies if this has been covered somewhere else, but I haven't been able to find it.

Hello! I changed the resolution to 1024x768 to start a game. When I tried turning back to my default resolution (800x600 @ 80 hz), it came up that this particular refresh rate isn't available as an option. For years I have used it, but now I don't seem to find it. I tried unticking the "hide modes this monitor can't display" button, but 80 hz didn't show up. I tried using the "List all modes" button under the Adapter tab, but such a resolution didn't come with this particular refresh rate. In fact, 80 hz was nowhere to be found. Any other rate is absolutely harmful to my eyes.
The monitor is CTX - very old. I'm running Windows XP Sp2 and my graphic card is Nvidia 9500 GT. Please, help - it is painful to use this monitor and I really can't afford another one right now..

i was curious to check my system's rate..but i had a message system rating is not available! i click on it, a new window opened "rate and improve your computer's performance/ your windows experience index has not yet been established" and a button "rate this computer" so did i!!
the test ran ok..but in the end i got this error message
"the windows experience index for your system could not be computed.
the assessment or other operation did not complete successfully. this is due to an error being reported from the operating system, driver or other component."
i found from the microsoft forum a possible solution suggested to someone else regarding using the chkdsk /f command in command prompt but i made no difference..
any helps guys?

A:windows 7 expericence rate problem!!

I had this problem once and IIRC it was due to the graphics driver. Try to update the driver for your nVidia card and re-run the assessment.

In fact, it's probably best to update all of the drivers you can (use the latest drivers from the manufacturer rather than Windows update if at all possible)

Good luck.

I hope somebody can help me with a simple question; my processor rating has dropped by 1.3% for some reason. Itís dropped from 7.4 to 6.1 and I donít understand the reason why this has happened and Iím kind of mystified the reason.
Itís always been the following:-

Processor: Calculations per second 7.4 (dropped to 6.1)
Memory (RAM): Memory operations per second 7.4
Graphics: Desktop performance for Windows Aero 7.7
Gaming graphics: 3d business and gaming graphics performance 7.7
Primary hard disk: Disk data transfer rate 5.9 (and this is with SATAIII 6GB)

Generated a system health report and that is fine all passed with flying colours, Iíve runs some tests myself and cannot find a reason why this has dropped from 7.4 to 6.1 a 1.3% drop in calculations per second.

A:Windows 7 Rate Processor per second has decresed 1.3%

Driver updates are known to affect Windows Experience Index sub-scores and base scores ... but these changes should be taken with a pinch of salt ... nothing much changes in real performance terms. It could simply be an extra service in the background or an existing process consuming more processor resources. Even adding more RAM (or replacing with different brand of RAM) can rather bizarrely lower the CPU score from what it was previously.

The Windows Experience Index is not perfect by a long way. Identical systems with identical specs have been known to show different scores. Unless you notice any real performance drop I wouldn't worry about it.
