I am not very good with computers and I seem to have a problem with my laptop. Before going to a computer forum where they use a completely diffferent language I hardly understand, I decided to ask the question here first. Please answer with plain English and if possible a step by step procedure if you know how to solve the problem. I have a problem with the keyboard (not all the time but it seems to happen more and more often): I need to press each key for 1-2 seconds before the letters appear on the screen (I am typing this from another computer). This is what I have done/checked so far: -Checked that the key filters were disabled -Tried to update keyboard driver -Uninstalled then re-installed the keyboard -Ran Norton Antivirus 2006 (up-to-date) -The keyboard DOES work in the BIOS (I think that is what it's called) All of that failed and I did not find any virus. Also, I noticed that the CPU runs between 95 and 100% all the time even when just running the Task Manager!! The two main processes that seems to use the CPU are called 'System' and 'System idle processes', which don't mean a lot to me. Any idea/suggestions? BTW, I use Windows XP.
