i have recently bought a new computer (pentium 4,512mb ram blah blah) and im having trouble.
When i hold down any key on the keyboard it causes my computer to lag. when i looked in task manager it told me "system idle process" was flying up to 100% (which makes no sense coz that means my comps doing nothing).
i later found that it was a subcatagory of system idle process called "hardware interrupt" causing the slowdown.
Thats the start of the problem and i have done the following.
*formated the hard drive with ntfs and fat 32 with windows setup and a third party program
*Installed windows with all but the hardware needed to be unplugged
*3 differant keyboards (differant makes)
*updated drivers for keyboard
*differant harddrive (when i first installed it it had windows xp on it already and it worked but when i reinstalled windows on it it buggered up.)
I dunno, ive looked on the net but with no luck. Im hoping im not the only one with this problem and someone knows a cure. it makes games and music unusable when im using the keyboard (games are a big no no).
i think thats everything. Ive tried so much. its really p*ssing me off.
