Can you tell me why the typing on my computer won't space and is so slow?

Asked by DarlingRhadamanthus (11210 points ) November 5th, 2009

I had some probs with a corrupt file…and got help here from that. (Thanks, PD). Everything seemed fine..again. But I noticed that when typing on my Google Email….it was slooowww or I would type a letter (as in “a” or “e”) and it would not come onto the screen. I would have to backspace and do it again. I strike the key or spacebar….and it may or may not type or space….that sort of thing.

I asked Google forums…and they said it was Skype that might be a prob..so I uninstalled it. Well, now…..it is typing really slooooww or not inputting letters on everything….including fluther and google mail.

I added Carbonite to back up my files…but that was before uninstalling Skype….and I was fine typing on everything (but Google) with Carbonite.

Any ideas…..as this is maddening….not being able to type quickly or having to go back to type in missing letters.

Thanks!

Are you sure it’s not something wrong with the connections from your keyboard, or with your keyboard itself?
