    Problems with keyboard stuttering/lagging.


    Hello! I have been member for many years and not sure if I ever posted. I have always found help I need via search.
    With that said I have had a intermittent problem for about 2 months. I play online games and I use the "W" key to move forward and I noticed that my character was stuttering, like lagging. I thought at first I was experiencing packet loss or bad connection. I did trace routes to my server ping tests etc and have concluded it is not my internet causing this.

    After a while of this I started doing tests. I made new text file on my desktop and held down the "W" key and noticed every so often it stopped for split second, (after 10-15 "W") then continued, some times it does it a lot (every 3-5"W") and other times it would less. I tried other keys and they did it as well so it wasn't a wore out key.

    I started with the usual of switching the keyboard to another computer and it did not happen on it. I tried another new keyboard and it also did it, again intermittent. I have updated my USB drivers, used drivers from my motherboard web site, let windows install/update drivers. Tried removing and reinstalling, tried using different USB ports, problem remains. I have done trouble shooting in windows 10. I have tried DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth and sfc /scannow followed by reboot. I tried the ease of use>keyboard>filter key toggle. I even formatted and reloaded windows again and it was fine for few days, then started again. I have open resource manager and held several keys down and watched my CPU, ram, disk, etc for spikes, nothing. All drivers are up to date.

    I hope someone can help me track down what is causing this. Thanks!

    Hello there!

    There's a few things that might be happening.

    To begin -

    If you changed the keyboard and the problem still exists, I would unplug all external peripherals (except the keyboard!) and go into Device Manager.
    Once there, delete all the USB devices under USB Serial Bus Controllers and reboot your system. It will configure itself.

    Then try the keyboard and see if the issue persists. If not, start adding back any external devices one at a time so the devices will PNP.

    Post back and advise.

    Thanks.

    OK I tired that and after reboot I open my text file and it seems to be working properly. As I said before this is intermitten and I am in Philippines and will try tomorrow playing my game and see if fixed it. Thanks for replying and I will report back if it fixed it or it started again.

    Yes, let us know. There are other things which might be involved, like excessive CPU cycles.

    Hello @lovs2build,

    You could also perform the following . . .

    [1] Goto this TenForums link => Batch Scripts / Programs.
    [2] Goto the heading msinfo32 [ MS System Information ] - Find Problem Devices and download the SECOND .bat file [ MS_Info32_Problem_Devices_ALL.bat ].
    [3] Run Option [2].

    I hope this helps!

    One more thing...

    As @Paul Black indicated, your hardware specs will be quite helpful.

    I would also suggest having a full list of installed software entered into Notepad with version numbers, so we could analyze, if required.

    I ran it and it showed,
    Creating the Prob_Devices.txt file . . .
    NO PROBLEM DEVICES WERE FOUND, deleting the EMPTY file . . .

    I didn't see a Prob_Devices.txt file in directory I ran it from.

    I don't use Speccy, so if you filled in the Hardware details, just do the Software in Notepad.
    Just all Software that you have installed. Hold onto to the file as we may not need it.

    Get some sleep!

    Salamat.

    The Prob_Devices.txt file gets created on your Desktop!

    Sorry, I was obviously updating my post as you were running the FIRST .bat file!

    Can you please run the SECOND .bat file [ MS_Info32_Problem_Devices_ALL.bat ] from the same place.
