What is up with this keyboard or PC.

Over the last few days I find that when typing something in the cursor stops with no further text on the screen. For example I want to type the letter "r" but nothing happens so I keep trying it to no avail. I then pick the keyboard up and shake it and all of them appear. My first thought was loose batteries but I have eliminated that.

you have something running in the background that is taking priority away from the windows you are attempting to write in.

OK, so what should I look for and disable if appropriate.

bring up ask manager and see whats running under processes.

maybe disable indexing or auto update for awhile and see what happens.

Do you not think is the keyboard then, why when I pick it up does it work or maybe that is just the time delay

A bit more info, to log in I need a password first. When I enter it, it does not always appear so I type it again and still nothing happens. If I pick up the keyboard it suddenly enters it twice, so it is then incorrect. It is a wireless keyboard and I think it is something to do with that.

Change the batteries maybe.

First thing I did Govan.

Still puzzled by this, it just stops displaying the text on the screen at times. If I lift it up then put it down again it does without me re-typing it but sometimes with a few letters missing.

bumpkin try moving the wireless sender to a usb2 port and not at rear of PC

Thanks for the suggestion but that is where it is and has been since I got it. I have moved it to another front port now just to see if it makes any difference. Fine at the moment. It is a Logitech keyboard/mouse combo, only about 4ft away from it, mouse has been no problem just this weird thing with the keyboard over the last week or so.
