Annoying Delay while typing

by geo75skye - 5/11/08 7:36 AM


My Computer seems to be responding slow everytime i type in the what i am doing right now

I have the same problem as this gurl/guy

the only thing is that my webpages arent that slow in responding...
it only slows down when im typing....they are lagging for short...

i type the words and they are like 3-5 letters behind me..... and then after some time it does respond fast and doesnt lag when im typing....

My Laptop is a:
Dell Inspiron Series 1501
Microsoft XP Media Center Edition
Service Pack 2
AMD Sempron
789 MHz, with 448 MB of RAM
Its a year old and i havent had this problem until last week

I have tried:
Disk Cleaning
Cookie Deleting
Running Virus and Anti spyware checkups (no viruses)
Reformatting <- (yeah i even tried reinstalling microsoft)

As of now this are the processes running and taking up space:

thanks in advance, yahoo messenger =

i think it has to do with my display driver...or its software...i havent had this problem when i was reformatting back then. i noticed this problem after i came back from school and decided to reformat it to resolve my problem.... and after 2 tries i noticed before installing the ATI IGP Xpress 1150 which is my video driver i didnt experience typing delay, but after i installed it.... it did have delays
