Slow response to text entry in boxes

Apart from a general slow and inconsistent response to clicking on desktop icons, my laptop running XP Home is a particularly slow to respond to text entries in boxes when online (e.g when entering email address or passwords). It is as though I am entering text too quickly. Sometimes the entry is left incomplete and sometimes the cursor seems to jump elsewhere on the page.
Any help or advice gratefully received.

either lack of ram or not enough room on hard drive for xp to operate.

3 possible problems UART chip is faulty, the CPU is not copping well and may need to be upgraded (or other processes need to be shutdown), or your keyboard equipmnet is faulty.
