Keyboard on laptop has bad typing response
\015 I am having a problem with my Acer Aspire 5100. It can not seem to keep up with as fast as I type, even when I slow down. It is as though it is not registering when I press all of the keys. So it skips letters and the space bar does not work most of the time I press it. I have to go back and add spaces and letters it did not register on the document even though I pressed it. This is very annoying! Does anyone know if this can be fixed other than replacing the laptop or putting an external keyboard on here. I have never had this problem on any other computer before. I can type 45 WPM and this just took me about 5 minutes!!!\015\012Can this be fixed?Thanks\015

Keyboard working improperly!!! My wife has a Compaq Presario C700 Laptop. For some reason the keyboard on the laptop doesn't work properly.
