    Keyboard Input Lag

    Hello. Ive just recently started having problems with keyboard input lag. Meaning, I will type and it will not register until a full second after I hit the key. I have re-installed java multiple times. Scanned my computer for harmfull virises, programs. Ive switched keyboards, and the problem still occurs. I am at a standstill at what to do and would really appreciate some help. Thank You!

    Is there any application draining resources? To see that right-click on the taskbar and select Task Manager. Click more details to see the full options. See for Any application that uses too much RAM or CPU. In the Details tab you can see individual processes and even right-click on them and set priority to a lower level. If it is a startup application, you could stop it from loading with Windows at startup. Press Win+R to open an Run dialog and execute msconfig to open System Configuration. Click on the Services tab and check the box to hide all Microsoft services. Examine the remaining services and uncheck the box to disable any non-important one (such as updaters). Also click on the Startup tab and click to open Task Manager. Disable any non-important application (Skype, uTorrent, Adobe Reader etc). You don't need everything to load at startup! You can manually load it any time you want.
