Keyboard Problems! I need the help of computer gurus!

For all you techies out there...I need your help! I am usually a simple computer guru myself, and my dad is a computer genious, but neither one of us can figure this out.

I am having problems with my keyboard. It started about 2 weeks ago. Here's the thing...

Whenever I try typing anywhere on the internet (forums, email, etc), my keyboard cannot seem to keep up, making me miss keys and such. But it doesn't do that when I'm typing on AIM or in Microsoft Word, etc. ONLY on the internet! And being a whiz typer, it REALLY frustrates me cuz I am not a slow typer lol! Where it would have only taken me about 3 minutes to type this post, it's taken me around 7 minutes!

Can anyone help me out? I have no idea how this problem came about! Thanks in advance!

Re: Keyboard Problems! I need the help of computer gurus!

Have you tested a different keyboard? I'm betting it will be the same result. Sounds to me like it could be a problem with your internet browser. Which one do you use? I've noticed certain versions of Firefox tend to have some pretty bad memory leaks and start to become pigs after a while.

Maybe try a different browser and see if the problem is the same

Re: Keyboard Problems! I need the help of computer gurus!

have any live cd's laying around? boot up a nix cd and see if it does it online as well. if not then i would suggest that it is not a keyboard problem, but rather something to do with the networking portion of the comp. eg drivers, os, software related stuff...

Re: Keyboard Problems! I need the help of computer gurus!

Well I looked it up and on other forums, whatnot, people are saying it's the battery. They take it out, and the typing keeps up. Put it back in, and the problem comes back. Then another solution was to go to the control panel and adjust the keyboard settings. I fixed that, but it didn't seem to help. I thought it started to work right after that, and it still seems to respond a BIT better, but neither solution seems feasable...

It doesn't seem like you are too open to try anything anyone is suggesting.  Did you try a different browser yet?  The only way to narrow down the problem is to try different solutions. There are also several things to try using the google results posted above.

And if you actually click on the links google brings up, you will see there is a very good chance it is a virus or malware. Run a virus scan and an ad-ware scan.
