    Windows 10 is making it impossible to type!

    Since I upgraded to Windows 10 I have huge problems typing anywhere whilst online... It keeps freezing and not responding. Very, very annoying!

    can anyone help?

    Is this happening in a specific program or more generally?

    What make and model is your keyboard? Have you downloaded the drivers for it?

    It's a Lenovo laptop - it's happening throughout. Ms office, gmail, Internet search engines

    every four or five letters it just freezes and stops reflecting what is typed.

    I have the same problem with applications, Yahoo IM, Skype, Office apps, where it sort of eventually "catches up". I am running an Acer Switch 10 validated to run Win10

    Did you guys try updating your drivers? Go to lenevo and acer's support website to search and update your drivers to latest version.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I ran into much the same freezing problem -- and I confirmed that I had the latest drivers.

    The only thing that fixed it -- and this seems to be the most common solution -- was to do a clean install.

    My guess is that it was something that was a hold over from Win8.1 that was causing the problem.

    I have not seen this problem on my Lenovo laptop, but I have seen it on others, and sometimes it was due to a bad battery. Removing the battery and using the power cord confirmed it.

    If you have Google Chrome Browser x64, uninstall it and use the 32-bit version.

    Another thing you could try is turning off Fast Startup. Then shut it down a few times and start it up again. Don't do a "restart", do complete shutdowns and startups.

    Run SFC /SCANNOW from administrator command prompt.

    Other than that, I have to agree with Mark (above) on a clean install or reset, as carryovers from previous OSs can be problems in W10.

    Lenovo installs specific drivers in Windows 8(.1) and 7 that are not compatible with W10. I know, we run a huge Lenovo user install. The drivers are part of their "improvement" packages that gives you battery saver, network drivers and the likes. Upgrade windows 7 or 8.1 to windows 10 to register the eligibility and then take a backup of the data and clean install from the Windows 10 ISO. I know, I know the upgrade tool told you your system was compatible and the fact of the matter is that the drivers are running (like they will run and they do not pose any security risk) the fact of the matter is that these drivers cause interrupt issues with the operating system. Similar to keeping your network on all the time and not let the software turn it off (bluetooth is also one of them). Sorry to be the bringer of this news, we have had over 45 upgrades so far and had to remove the Lenovo tools, even that did not help much so we wiped and reinstalled. by the way these were mostly T series laptops (T420s, T520 and 530), for some reason the X1 Carbon is not affected...

    Within the first few days after my Win 7-->Win 10 upgrade, I had a problem with the mouse clicks not working for up to 2 minutes at a time, and then the clicks would work (it had not affected the movement of the cursor though!)

    It was suggested to me to do driver updates, but this was a basic USB optical mouse from years back..there's no updating that.

    Then the problem suddenly went away. I had done no driver updates at all.

    The only thing I knew for sure was going on was Win10 updates DAILY!

    Pretty sure THAT was the problem. If you can't resolve it, be patient: Microsoft Windows 10 Change Instrument group (or whatever they're called) are probably working furiously to tweak your problem behind the scenes. That's the only explanation I can find for what happened in my case. I can't accept that my machine adapted to the new operating environment by itself. It had to be Win10 changing

    I get it every now and then. I am writing it up to poor resource management by the Kernel. It is sad that you have to spend as much time waiting for it to be ready to log in, just like the old days.

    I just look at it as a way to go get my coffee ready and go take a shower, when I log in.
