What might be causing the slow display of charachters to the monitor. It takes up to 5 to 15 seconds for the display to react after a keystroke.

How full is the drive, and is there much disk activity? How large are your swap file size amounts? Have you dumped temp inet & or other temp files? What OS? More info needed please!

Resource limitations would cause this slowness. Norton Anti-Virus or a lot of programs running in background might also eat response time. Corruption of temporary files. Full hdd, etc.

1) delete all *.tmp files and ~*.*
2) delete everythingfound in Temporary Internet Files (if using Internet Explorer) or Cache (if using Netscape).
3) run a scandisk and a complete defrag.

Possibilities:

1) Unseated Video board -- Open your case and reseat the card.
2) Corrupt drivers (refresh rates can go bad in this case) -- Recommend reinstall
3) Too many (and unneccessary) TSR's loaded -- Go to MSCONFIG (Start | Run) and select Startup. You will see many drivers loaded that may be unneccessary, such as Real Player, System Doctor, etc.)
4) Badly fragmented hard drive - Run Speedisk or Defrag
5) Clear out any .temp,.tmp files. Check your /temp directory or just run a search for *.tmp and *.temp
6) If this is program specific, try reinstalling the program (uninstall first). Make sure it doesn't require any more ram than you already have.
7) Flaky memory stick(s) or just not enough memory.

Good luck and hope this helps! I'd be interested to know what resolves this for you.

Regards,
Jesse
