Hi timsldy,

I am Makarand P from the Dell Social Media and Communities team.

With regards to your issue, keystroke lagging could be due to 3 reasons. Primarily use a brush or a vacuum cleaner to check if any dust is present between the crevices of the keys. Secondly run a spyware check to eliminate the possibility of keystroke logger virus on the computer. Thirdly check the keyboard settings to ensure sticky keys are not checked. Keyboard settings are present in control panel or under Accessories under Start and All programs.

Kindly revert for further clarifications.

Thanks and regards,
Dell Social Media Responder

Another this occuring on just one program or application, or everything? Are other things such as video or mouse "lagging"?

I have about the same problem. Mine happens especially on web typing such as this forum. It never happens if I am typing on an MS word document. The blinking cursor just disappears and it takes too long for it to reappear.

I have W7x64 HP with Microsoft wireless kb and mouse combination. I have the latest MS drivers v8.2 for both kb and mouse. I also have IE9 with HTML v5. This is info for you. I am not hijacking your post or looking for a solution. But I did hope it was something as easy as sticking and dirty keys on the keyboard or keylogger virus coded by an apprentice hacker.
