    Some times I try to type answering a thread or posting something new on the fourm and after I submit my text I realize that a lot of the letters I intered are gone and my writting looks so bad and broken.

    Thank you

    Sounds like it Omran, you can get a cheap replacement at Wally World. I have a spare one if you want to come and get it, it has the small plug. But if you get one at Wally World make sure it has the adapter in the box before you leave the store in case you have the large size plug in the back.

    its new and a wireless one......and I have noticed exactly the same!

    Check the batteries first. Also some wireless ones seem to have a conflict with certain software. In my case it is word expansion software. I can use one or the other but not both at the same time. Since I need the expansion software to work, I dumped the keyboard and haven't had a problem since.

    I'm thinking more like tons of spyware and adware..try spybot and clean all the junk up before you scrap the computer. The psyware/adware is different form virsuses it slows your computer down sooooo much and can even make a delay in the words appearing on the screen as you type..like the old word processors used to do...very frustrating. Spybot works well for me though. Good luck. [​IMG]
