Whenever I type long e-mails or paragraphs and proof my letter, I have missed many letters and have to go back and fix everything and put the lettes in. The faster I type the worste it is and the longer the computer is on the worst it gets. I did not spill anything n the keyboard and have canned air that did not work when I tried to clean it.
What can I do?

Unfortunately, you told us nothing of your computer. Is this a notebook or PC? What brand and model? XP, Vista, MacOS? When did it start? Have you scanned for malware? Is the cable securely fastened? Did you try another keyboard?

Its a Dell Inspiron 1300 lap-top with Windows XP. Yes I did scan for malware and it is free of any Virus's. This has been going on for a few months and I have tried everything I heard about and did clean it with canned air. Not sure about the drivers.

I was thinking of finding one you can borrow and try out. It would only take a few minutes. If the external keyboard works, you know the problem is with your keyboard.

I will get one from my friend. Might take a couple days because of work, but will be back with results as soon as I check.
Thanks
