Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

I have a Dell Inspiron 531 Windows VISTA Home Premium purchased 11-18-07. For the last several months, when I'm typing an e-mail, I have to hit a key several times for it to appear on the screen. The keyboard is doing fine as I'm typing this to you----the problem is just in e-mails. Should I ask Microsoft? or you? or G-Mail? I don't know where the problem lies. I even bought a new keyboard but still have the same frustration. Thanks Ann Lawson

Is it a wireless keyboard? If so, make sure nothing is blocking the transmitter. If not, what is your current configuration?

\015\012CPU speed?
\015\012Hard drive space?
\015\012Version of Internet Explorer?
