Keyboard to application typing rate slow

by secure-rite ms / January 15, 2009 2:11 AM PST

Using a Dell Latitude 131L laptop on XP Pro SP3. Just recently the keyboard typing rate on all applications has really slowed down. I have checked some of the standard things, spywear scan, accessibility setting, keyboard setting, but all look normal.

I have re-booted into Safe Mode and the problem goes away!!

Does anyone have a suggestion how to fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

found this on another forum and it worked for my Dell 1501, hope it works or you.

Disable the ATI HotKey Poller service in Windows.

Go to Start->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services

You should see the ATI HotKey Poller Services listed. Right Click on it and select properties. Halfway down the screen you should see the "Startup type." Choose disabled from the drop-down list, click apply, close out all applications and reboot. This should resolve your issues.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
