keyboard can be slow

Occasionally when typing the screen lags behind the keyboard, so that when I look up to the screen an appreciable delay before text runs across the screen.

ailing keyboard or a system problem?

Could be down to virus/spyware etc, but not likely.

Or could by lack of system resources.

More likely, is that something maybe running in the background, usually this is anti-virus or spyware scanner. As these are set for scheduled scanning, this would explain why you only notice this occasionally.

I really doubt that it is your keyboard, however, if you run out of other poss explanations, they are relatively cheap to replace.

Hope this helps, puts you back on page 1 anyway, so someone else may have other ideas.
