Hello.

I don't know if I did something, reset something or what. BUT, just a few days ago, this seemed to change and I cannot figure it out.

When I type text, the cursor is a good few words behind. IF I am typing an aritcle it can be as much as a full line behind. UNacceptable! I need to see what I am typing as I type it in. I've never seen this happen before on this or any other computer. Just typing this request is hard and if there is a mistabke it is not just a matter of a backspace. Backspacking is also unbelieveably slow.

How on earth did this happen and how can I fix it?

This is a Toshiba satellite laptop, a few years old, running Vista.

ANY help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Did I post this in the wrong place too? :)

Geeze a loo...

Problem Solved by cleaning out the fan and keyboard.

Dust bunnies sure can goo things up...
