|On my laptop, the text cursor or caret (not the mouse pointer) zips right along normally, but every so often it slows down considerably--almost as if it is pausing to think before it moves to the next character. Once this problem appears, it appears in all programs. If I shut down all applications, it still remains. However, if I restart, the problem goes away.|
Just to clarify, I am not talking about the blink rate of the cursor. I mean the movement of the text cursor up and down, left and right--either in response to the arrow keys or to typing. I have not changed any settings to cause this. For instance, my keyboard repeat rate is at the maximum. Even if there was a setting that caused it, it's one that resets every time the computer is restarted.
I am using Windows XP Professional SP3.
I'd appreciate any help or suggestions you have. Thanks.
