Typing Delay

Q: Typing Delay

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 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.)

Using Vista Home Premium 32 bit on new Toshiba Laptop - P105-S6197, Core 2 Duo processor, T5200 1.60 GHz, 2048MB Memory Size. Has anybody experienced a typing delay from the time you type the words to the time it appears on the screen? This has occured on my new laptop. Never a problem on my 2 yr old Sony desktop (Windows XP Media Center) or Sony laptop (Windows 98SE).

No, but i can probably tell you that the problem is the 1.60GHz processor. You will probably need atleast 1.80GHz to 2.00GHz clock speed.

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.

I recently purchased a Lenovo y50 with the following specs:
Intel Core i7-4720HQ 2.6 GHz Processor
16 GB DDR3 RAM
256 GB Solid-State Drive
15.6-Inch Screen; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M Graphics; Intel HD Graphics 4600
Windows 8.1

Randomly while I use the laptop, I get an odd typing and deleting delay. When deleting a line of text, it goes realllllly slow. When I type quickly, there is a noticeable delay as well.

This lag doesnt happen always but once it starts, i usually have to restart my pc to get it to stop. Is there something wrong with the intel driver? or what i have no idea!!

Thank you for any insight/suggestions

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.

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.

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. I don't know what is wrong but I do know that something is not right.

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

T460 laptop, Synaptics Clickpad V1.1 Things I've tried:-  Reinstalling drivers, and restarting laptop. Nothing changed.-  Turned palm rejection to minimum. This fixes an earlier problem where the mouse would stop moving with keyboard presses, but it doesn't affect the clicking delay.-  Went into the registry editor, found 'synaptics' under 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE' but couldn't find any variables that indicate a delay after keyboard presses. I'd really appreciate any help with this. ~3 hours of googling isn't helping me.

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.

Do hope you can help.

I type a few words in any program and then my Tecra A11 stops typing and there is no cursor or responsiveness until I click on the page I was typing on, reposition the cursor and I can then start typing again.

It's taken me several "clicks" to get this amount of text typed and this is driving me crazy. I can't seem to find why it is doing it.

Have you any ideas please?

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.

I changed my OS form vista to windows 7 home premium 32bit, since changing I'm facing problem when I'm typing.

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

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

A:IE9 - 2sec startup delay; 0-2sec delay when opening tabs

Doubt you want to hear this, but my honest solution to the problem is to use either firefox or chrome instead.
I have friends who put your system to shame and I.E. just never seems to 'pop' for them.

I have an annoying problem with IE. When I open a new window, there is a slight delay before it opens. Usually its about 1-2 secs. The problem started after I cleaned my system of a virus http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/573502-vundo-problem-please-help.html I had IE6 at the time and just recently I installed IE7 and it still has the delay. It doesn't seem like a big deal but it gets very annoying. Any ideas? Thanks.

The first day I received this new computer, I noticed a very noisy liquid cooling system.  It was audible in the next room.  I knew that I could not live with it forever but also had projects requiring completion and so lived with it.  I also noticed periodically the temperature would skyrocket for a few minutes before cooling back down.I had purchased the extended warrantty and finally began making arrangements in August, 2016 for repair.I see I'm not the only one reporting delayed repairs but this may be a bit longer than some others and there's no promise that it will end here.  HP received my computer on 9/28/16 and emailed an expected return date of 10/10/16. On 10/10/16, instead of receiving a computer, I received an email reporting a return delay to 10/17/16. On 10/17 with no computer, I contacted HP and learned there was now an unannounced delay.  The return would now be listed delayed to 10/26.  That's return date #3.On 10/24 with no shipping information, I contacted HP and learned "the part has been delayed" to 10/26 and so the computer would come back on 11/2/16 "or maybe earlier", return date #4.  It was going to take a week to complete the necessary extensive testing.   On 10/25 the return date was stil listed on 10/26 even though the phone call reported the return date would be 11/2/16.  Today 10/26, I looked on line and the original phoned return from 11/2/16 is now printed to be postponed to 11/1...

@LesterK

  I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details). If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.
Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forum.

Q: Delay

This is best explained by my screenshot only. Thanks Chuck

A:Delay

Hi chuckracer.

Lets see what is starting up with your machine.

Please download Autoruns. After you download the zipped folder on your desktop, right click the zipped folder and click Extract All. After the folder has been extracted open the regular folder. Run the autoruns.exe program by right clicking on it and selecting Run as administrator. When you open the program click the Logon Tab and then post a screenshot of all the startup entries in your next reply.

Then download ShellExView and disable all non Microsoft shell extensions and see if the right click menu delay improves.

I sent my desktop into HP to get fixed 5/6/16 i was supposed to get it back like 5/13/16 but week after week I keep getting a new shipping date of course it never ships on this date. And people say time warner and sprint have the worse customer service. Clearly none of these people had the misfortune of buying a HP. No chat service and they do thier best to hide any customer support phone numbers. And when I do call they put you on hold, transfer you from department to department before someone just drops your call. I can't even find out what is actually wrong with my computer or get a refund. Thankfully I keep my Mac but the fact HP would leave me without a computer for over a month with no updates means I will never buy from HP again.

I have been having some problems with opening processes on my computer. If I click on the internet explorer icon on my desktop there is a minute delay before the window will actually open. Same goes for opening "my computer", "control panel" etc. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Have you run Spyware, Adware scans ? Are you Anti-malware programs up to date ? I suggest going to the security forum and read all the stickies and general infos and follow them. If they find something (or not) then post a HJT log and let the security experts remove anything that might slow your system down.

Okay, there's a game name Maple Story. In this game you must press Z to loot an item. It becomes a little bit of a hassle when you must do this like 30 times in a row. So I wondered if anyone knew of a program in which lets you spam a key by simply pressing it once and holding it down. It would be a great convenience if there is such a program. I would really appreciate it if someone in this community could help me with my little dilemma.

PS. My delay is set to short, and repeat rate is on fast. Also, I'm on a XP computer from dell.

~Thanks!

A few days ago, my internet has recently shut down then reconnected. Ever since that day my side of the internet has been going downhill. Whenever my brother is on the computer and is on skype, or playing the same games as me, his ping stays low. However, for me, I go to 600 ping. I contacted my ISP and they couldn't help me. Any help is appreciated, I would be greatful if this gets solved. Thanks.

So not to have two post, im throwing it into one.
---------
First,
How can you tell which codec you are actually missing? And is there like a database or something somewhere to download them?

Second,
Is the 2 second delay and low sound normal of burnt CDs? Is there a way to get rid it? The 2 second delay im talking about is inbetween songs. After one ends, theres a 2 second delay before the next song. And by low sound, I mean that it sounds lower than the original CD.

Running a Optiplex 330 with win 10 upgrade. When you click anything to perform an activity there is no response for about 10-30 sec for 30-40% of the time. Then it runs fine until the next time.You can move the mouse freely around the screen waiting for a response. I have changed HD, reinstalled os, changed mouse types and ports. Wondering if I am having a heat problem. Any suggestions?

A:Function delay

my thoughts would turn to some level of activity running in the background. services etc. has the AV or a program like Malwarebytes being used to run a scan. this will to narrow down the possible culprit for the latency.

also for pups, toolbars, try Adwcleaner to check for any thing using up system resources. download freebie from the link. install and run scan. the machine requires a restart to clean any issues.

I have my xbox 360's sound connected to the line-in on my motherboard, and normally under vista it worked perfect. With windows 7 I notice a significant delay and it makes it virtually impossible to play games like rockband, guitar hero, etc. Is there any fix for this? Thanks

A:Line-in delay/lag

I'm experiencing the same issue with the line-in with Windows 7. Audio is from a patch cord running from my guitar effects pedal. It worked fine in Vista.

<UPDATE> Since I built my system, I dug out my ASUS motherboard systems CD and installed the Vista Reltek sound drivers. After a reboot, the Line-in worked like it did in Vista with no delay (simple audio pass through). Just as long as "Listen to this device" is unchecked (in the Listen tab in Line-in properties).
