    Microsoft Input Lag (Keyboards Acting Up) - Hell Corner

    So basically I have came to face the situation once of an acting up keyboard on a laptop that I had it replaced and everything got back to normal and I called it today , but this post isn't about this clearly brainless case .

    Its more about later on as I started having increasing amount of support requests revolving around keyboards , usually the symptoms seemed justifiable , usually the affected keys were directly above the CPU area where it gets all hot like :
    1 2 3
    q w e
    a s d
    and also keys that are often abused by gamers like :
    Arrow keys
    i o p
    But then lets face it the forums had tons of these support requests and usually the first recommendation would be "Replace Keyboard" which is often neglected by poster as they decide to wait on and just buy something new yet however the fiddly ones usually come back with same symptoms different keyboard .

    Lately I have faced this issue with a laptop keyboard that I decided to take the fiddly path with and here is what I found out :

    - On connecting different/additional USB keyboard the problem may remain indicating this isn't a keyboard issue

    - On removing laptop's keyboard and installing a USB one to make sure the keyboard in question isn't affecting input the problem remains

    - On Clean Booting selecting Custom Startup removing all utilities and services the problem remains

    Now this all may indicate the problem is OS related and not quite hardware .

    However here are few interesting facts to put in consideration :

    - Turning Game Mode off may surprisingly improve things but not totally fix them

    - Turning Game Bar off may surprisingly improve things but not totally fix them

    - Despite that such acting up may happen while using notepad even , turning off V-Sync in driver's control panel if enabled might well reduce input lag some

    And here are few jaw dropping facts :

    - The majority of Game Apps developers acknowledge the existence of such glitches in their forums with no explanation to how that may have happened but would recommend that you buy yourself an XBoX controller under claim that these never glitch

    - Developers of Gods of Rome app game decided to shift from using the Keyboard into using the Mouse to get over it despite being in the "Beat'm Up" category of games where it won't be long before the new category of games rise , the "Click'm Up" !

    - Developers of Need for Speed app game decided to implement what is called Auto Drive where the car actually drives itself with you just picking the suitable route when the road comes to split so to minimize keyboard interaction !

    - Developers of Asphalt 9 app game took same route of the developers of Need for Speed making both games more of interactive videos than games !

    - Asphalt Xtreme game app had been deemed a disaster and unplayable since its early launch the developers were not able to integrate Auto Drive due to multi platform design of race tracks and disclaimed that if you ever get hit by input lag you may well try to play it using an XBoX controller , the game itself was considered a bad omen for the company and is why they rushed into releasing Asphalt 9 right after the release of Xtreme despite they had Asphalt 8 being their flagship for almost a decade .

    So now to the conclusion ?

    - If you are not part of the pool of the affected then you can close this post and call it today .

    - If you believe this is drivers issue , if you believe this is a bus issue , if you believe this is a malware issue the community of developers have only one answer for you ...

    -= Microsoft wants you to get an XBoX controller , and learn to live with random keyboard behavior =-
