I have a Dell Vostro 1000 that I just recently got and I have installed and updated all drivers that I know of. But whenever I type it takes for ever for the words to show up.. I am a very fast typer usually, so what would normally take 15 minutes to type now takes about 25-30 minutes just to type because it is so slow it's like the letters I type can't keep up with me. I have never had this problem before. What should I do?
Does this "slow typing" happen on all the word processor apps on the laptop? Notepad, Wordpad, Word etc, etc? Is it still the same if you install something like Notepad++?
try this yummy
Disable loading of PCMService.exe click Start / Run in the box that pops open type msconfig
click startup tab
take the tick out of PCMService.exe
click ok, then restart the laptop.
from what i have been reading this will only work on dell laptops that have the dell media direct installed as there is a problem in that program.
but its worth a try if your dell has that.
