time delay between keyboard and screen

Am running on Windows Me and there is about a 2/3 second time delay between when I press a key and when it appears on the screen (it's even slower if I am in MS word).

I've looked in Control panel and keyboard but nothing obvious.

any ideas as it is driving me nuts!!!

Check to see if there is anything running in the background that is using a lot of resources and making the PC unresponsive - press Ctrl+Alt+Del and have a look at what is running.

Do you use tools such as Ad-Aware and Spyware Blaster to keep the PC free of "Spyware", which can have a serious impact on performance?

I use both these utilties plus others - keyboard response is instantaneous.

It may be that you need to reinstall the keyboard's driver or download the latest from the manufacturer's website;also check its Properties from Control Panel>Keyboard including the repeat rates.

If it's a battery run keyboard (i.e. wireless) then the batteries may be running low.
