keyboard slow to respond
Posted on 2004-10-27
I have a Windows XP Home Edition PC and the problem is that the keyboard does respond quickly. If I'm in a document and type a letter, I have to hold that key down for 2 seconds (hearing 2 soft beeps) and then the letter appears. All keys react the same way. I have tried a USB keyboard and another PS/2 keyboard. The keyboard works fine in DOS and the BIOS Setup screen (intel 865 motherboard) but as soon as you log into Windows normal or safe mode it reverts back to the slow key time. I have fiddled with the Keyboard settins in Control Panel but none of the settings have any affect. Have removed keyboard from device manager and it finds it again as the standard keyboard (which it is) and still no affect. I have also tried updated to XP SP2 and same results, scanned and removed spyware and the Spybot.worm virus but still not fix.
Help, please. I do not want to have to format and reload if I can avoid it.
