Backspace is slow - how to solve

Why is my backspace so slow?

Backspace is always slow, because of the whole Sticky keys and accessibility built into windows. Quickest way of deleting a word or group of words has always been the mouse highlight then hit delete. bro67 said: Backspace is always slow, because of the whole Sticky keys and accessibility built into windows.

What the heck, Keely, what did you upload? The real truth about Preston is my sister is clicking me again for views. I swear she does this at least once a month that's so wrong.

(Keeley-I'm here) NO, you're not on this page? This is the master's side! Why don't you do us a favor? Okay. Just let me stand there.

I'll lower the desk real quick. What's that? Do you wear a design that's completely on your, um ... shirt printed like I had it two years before you (no, I ... actually my shirts are made of a different material than yours) AhNo, it's not it's not it's a different type of shirt) (yes, it actually is.) She was just called to click - you all clicked so hard (No .. (Oh-oh-oh you will) You are the worst clickbaiter. (You will talk ...) You are the worst clickbaiter. (You will talk ...) She's the WORST at clickbaiting, it's disgusting! (Wait so hard for clickbait) I don't have to clickbait, my articles are just good '0' (you .. .) She just can't get an audience and tries to steal her brother's coat t dick. (Oh I'm sorry, but what's the name of this article again?) Well, I'm sorry, how many subscribers do you have? (Um, you know ...) (I don't have as many as you, but I haven't been doing it that long) You started three years ago.

I just started my Roblox channel and it has already doubled your subscribers, in a month. (Sorry, I don't have six million viewers who suddenly subscribe.) Oh, I knew that addressed her.

She's defensive guys, watch out! It will explode. (I'm sorry, what's the title of this article again?) (Is it my name in the title of this article?) No (Oh, I'm sorry ...) just sister. (... but don't use my name , Sister, for your clickbait purposes?) I don't need you for clickbait! (Oh really ...) You don't even get calls (... well, I'll just leave just then.) See, I'm going to type in Prestonpaalyzs. (Oh, look who's coming!) (Me !!) Guess who exactly is there !! This is YOUR channel! You clicked it again.

You clicked me (Clickbait ...) AGAIN !! (Here's the thing ...) (Click bait is the definition of where you-you-you uses lies to get someone to click.

Those aren't lies.) Wait, just let me ...

Well, let's see that on. Wow you got me 400,000 views, is that all you can muster? Hey, I got you 1 million right away. And you didn't eat the dog food in the article. (I ate dog food too!) Because she's such a pleb man, Keeley, you're as pale as if you were so pale. (Leave me alone, okay) Look how pale you are. (I'm sorry) It looks like we're from ... we look like we're different siblings.

Look at that muscle! But we have a couple of questions, okay? Preston and I are Preston, (You are Preston) yes, I am Preston. (I'm Keeley) Okay Keeley, the number one question What did you do as a little kid that was really embarrassing? She probably saw Barney ten years in one year. How is that possible over time? I don't know, but she did. (I have.

I've seen a lot of Barney) You want to know how much Barney I had to see as a growing man (Haha! Hey, I'm sorry. I like the purple dinosaur man.) I have - still have nightmares (from Barney?) to this day.

Yeah (Uh, you just play, lots of article games.) Wow, is that supposed to be embarrassing? (No, as you would - I'd just love to go in and you just play article games like you've done nothing else) That's fine. (You didn't have a life) All I had to do was eat, sleep, pray, and play article games. (Like, you didn't have a life) (It was just article games) I didn't need a life, I had a life for my article game. (I mean, okay, okay, if you want to think of it as life, but ...) You can't- you can't even roast me Okay, what about this one? What was her childhood treasured possession (obsession) (YOU CAN'T READ TOO!) I don't know I didn't need to read (That's because you just spent time with the article games.) Yeah, I didn't go to college I didn't have to go to college because I ... (Oh guess who goes to college ?!) I had these skills! (Well, I'm going to college, so maybe ...) Oh, uh, guess who paid for their college (shut up!) I know what I did, that was really embarrassing, but I was like a year old, ... well i don't know if this really counts as embarrassing (well what is it? tell me) i used to sleep in a nightgown my mom wore because i thought it smelled like Mama but I was like a little baby.

You know oh my god No, he has to do that, when you were 11 or 12 years old you would be afraid to sleep alone in your room. So you made a palette in my room and slept in mine and yours yes it was me Josh and Kayla's room, we shared the room and you and I were never afraid. I wanted to see movies with you.

We saw ourselves watching Disney movies every night. I'm probably looking like they really need 7-under-diamond. You would come in the middle of Italy and yes, you would see what you come in in the middle of the night and do a bunch in our room and sleep in our room.

I took care of them Uh-huh little siblings that the older sibling has to take care of, it doesn't matter anyway because your embarrassing childhood possessions or your barbie dolls, okay, I liked your tons of barbie dolls, okay, so embarrassing , leave me alone, and what do you want to be when you grow up? I remember you once told me what you wanted to be when you grow up. He said I'll be a farmer with a tank if it will be a farmer with 20 kids But my current future wife won't allow us to have 20 kids so boy give me a farmer although I could probably still be a farmer . I mean now.

I breed them who you have I got you Can you also imagine how I could I'll make a article Bet I would look good Comment below we cover the pressing of some overalls. I think I would look awesome and overall. I really think I would do something that is still driving you crazy? Well, when I was still living with my parents and family, who thank God moved out six years ago, I was almost 18.

He's been singing all the time, I would never ever take a break I mean, I'll tell you how I'm sure when you have a sister, can you really empathize, like sometimes you just don't what do you sing? I had a room right next to his room and at 3 am when I try to fall asleep I heard this guy. Are you kidding me? I set up a Twitch stream for a large audience on a YouTube channel, I was trying to grow my music career, And you were trying to grow your pussy, you can't even complain. I think I want to, yes, sorry, but just like the story in the bible, I was given the birthright, okay, if you moved out then I have to do this just because I know that just because I moved out Doesn't that mean that I'm NOT the oldest sibling Well.

I may not be the oldest sibling in the house, but I'm down the street from all of you, oh look at them. She is this madman. You don't know, to get the next question right, what changed about them as they got older, really Kelly? You just got a lot uglier buddy, well this is mine.

Getting married you still have to look for something. Got bangers today like my roast is up here. Keeleys is like yes, I don't think Chris has changed much.

She was still as strange now as he always was. I'm not uglyNext question Nokia is not ugly, she is very pretty. I wish it was you, I watch them sometimes I remember that you know it as a brother.

You don't want your sister to be pretty, but you don't because then you have to deal with guys who are looking at my sister. There's none that maybe some know it's okay except to go. OK? She will survive this difficult time.

Please just buy our family items and come to Dublin happily. What was your worst fear as a kid? Your worst fear as a kid eating pineapple with ketchup on a Tuesday? This is scary reminding me to do a sibling food challenge. We don't do that for a hundred dads and such and we do it.

NoDeathcap article yes it's your fault life doesn't matter. You'll still be part of it, you're part of the first sibling. No, I'll bring you all in here, We'll be, we don't, it's not just No, oh how do you like their balls? Well Kili is a simple girl, she like she looks good, but I eat them are weird, I eat them with grape jelly but right, yes, but there is a certain time with a bit okay but there is a name for It's over, too easy and too difficult.

OK. That's too much of what it was. It was January 33rd.

Oh wait, that's pretty easy over-medium over-hard, over easy over medium. No i don't know thanks. Oh, I didn't know your hat was connected to your tendon.

It's the hat that's part of me. It's like I don't have my own bed. It's just my hat.

You know I apologize, yeah really rude, don't actually ever make fun of this again What was one thing they wanted to achieve when they were younger and that knocked them out of the park now? I would say I bought answer? down by no kitty wanted to advance her music career and has since had her own album and music article in it. Levi edited my beautiful editor. I was really bad, but it was still fun.

I still enjoyed it. I would say you got your music career out of hand and you go to school for music, so I would say QE stayed on that path. You know what she wanted from a young age, I mean, even though you're screaming around the room at 3am while I was trying to sleep, I was woken up.

He worked to work hard you know he got here people don't notice They think I just work and do a article for about 30 minutes a day and that's it no guys you don't even know how this guy works crazy hours non-stop and is ridiculous. I hardly see I hardly see my simple I'm always in the office. I always write that it always works, so you should really appreciate it, no jokes aside.

He works part of it, everyone I know thinks so. Well, bad for him. Well papa, the reticent Dan, the last question, what are you most proud of, because I think we touched that with our last something.

I mean, I'm really proud of Keely because they had a thousand subscribers, so subscribe to them. Yeah, don't tell me a cake just yet, I'm proud that she got to the college she wanted to go to, that she stuck with her roots and Christianity and continues to be a good Christian sister because that's important and one thing the biggest things i think is a lot of brothers and sisters arguing and arguing a lot, which is really sad and we don't do that, we did like you often replied but i mean Juliana has never had an argument or argument I mean, I've had a lot more arguments for mom and dad that I've ever had.I can't even think of one that I can think of like mom and dad.I don't mean just little things when we were little kids, but that it was already.

She has become a very beautiful girl inside and out and I can't say anymore that she is a girl. She is 18, she is a woman, but you will always be my little sister. You will always yes, you are your child.

I'm a kid, you will always be my little sister No, no, okay, but I'm really proud of you like I said, like he worked harder than anyone knows and I'm just so proud that he did that Built the whole thing for himself, and he's actually mom Oh, don't forget the bad guy, knows exactly how, but the gods helped you get to where you are today And I'm proud that you are with you stayed for him and that you really did the whole thing. I appreciate this sister, I appreciate that I love you. I love you too.

Sister, all right. She wants a kiss on the cheekAhOkay guys you know what? Maybe I'll forgive you for now the real truth about breasts article on the spot I mean but a quick baby could give me at least 50% You know what I mean like maybe a hundred Just a hundred percent in this article I get huh all right guys that will be the end of the article. Thanks for coming, the office nurse.

I'll see you next time you're hungry. I am not hungry for money. I just like money Ella.

OK. I like it. bye

How do you fix a backspace problem?

Follow these to turn off these two feature to get your backspace work again:
  1. Type ease in the search box from Start. Then click Ease of Access keyboard settings.
  2. Make sure the status of Sticky Keys and Filter Keys are all set to Off. If you see On, switch to Off.
  3. Your backspace key should work now.

Hi friends, welcome to a new series of tutorials from tech pros, today we're going to show you how to easily re-insert the spacebar or any other key on your laptopTools you'll need a flat little screwdriver and tweezers, let's say you one for some basic If you have a misplaced or removed space bar on your laptop, gently insert the screwdriver under the space bar and lift it up, then pull it from either side with your fingers until you hear a click when you see the space bar removed see two metal rods, look at the top hooks that the hinges slide into, we also have two holes on each side that is where the metal rods fit. here we see the plastic hinges, they are the same with the other keys, so the technique is to reset them , the same .we take it off to show you how to put it back Now take the tweezers and grab it this way you need to put the bottom pins into the hooks and then use your scr to hold the ewdriver and press the top of the hinge with the back of your tweezers.

Test it if it is tight. Now take the space bar and try to put the bottom bars in the holes first. Remember the top hooks need to slide into the pins then put the other rod in the holes it will sit in place, play with it a bit and give it a pretty firm pressure, but not too strong, we don't want to break it and that's it , we're done, thanks for watching, check out my other articles and don't forget to subscribe!

Why is my keyboard typing so slowly?

Many factors make typing feel out of sync on Windows devices. A slow computer, faulty USB ports, outdated keyboard drivers, and misconfigured keyboard settings are a few of the reasons for keyboard lag.20 mei 2021

It happens to everyone. You buy a brand new computer and when you start it up for the first time you are amazed at how fast it is. But then ... go by a few years or even months, and before you know it, the computer is struggling to even run basic programs.

What happened? Well, there are many reasons a computer can slow down over time, but I've bought a list of ten things you can do in Windows to hopefully make it run more like the first time around. And don't worry, these are all simple and free things you can do right now. Some of these may seem obvious, but others may not.

So, let's go. First and foremost, clean out your startup programs AND services; this must be the main cause of slowdowns over time, so think about it. As time goes on and you install new programs, many of them start up with Windows.

And if you don't close them, more and more programs will be running in the background, consuming resources. But don't think that's just because you don't see a lot of programs in the system tray, not a lot of programs running in the background. In Windows 8 and 10, you can open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc and going to the Start tab to see ALL programs that start with Windows.

On Windows 7 and earlier, go to the start menu and run 'msconfig'. Right click and disable any programs you don't need right away. Of course, you can always run them manually, but they don't need to be started.

This is where most of the people screw up. Because the start tab isn't the end of the story. Because many programs install what are called 'services' which are still programs that run in the background but you never see them.

So number two is to go through these startup services and disable any unneeded services. You can do this by going to the start menu and running 'Services.msc' you will get a list of all the services, and any that say 'automatically' will start with Windows right clicking on them and changing the startup type to 'manual', so that they only run when the program is started.

Remember that you should be more careful about disabling these programs, especially programs that you do not necessarily run manually - for example, disabling the printer service the next time you print can cause problems, so only disable services from those They know you don't have to run them in the background, which is also great for programs that keep starting, but you can't find it in the startup list. It is, in fact, probably a service. Now quick, as a number '2.5' so to speak, which is pretty reasonable and goes one and two, but uninstall any unused programs on disk space and remove startup junk without going through the entire list of startup programs and services to get around find out what each one is doing.

Okay number three, another simple task that hopefully you're already doing is scanning for malware and viruses Your computer is always running.If it's slow for no apparent reason, it is possible that malicious software hidden in the background is running from the display from advertising to using your computer resources in a botnet. Now there are both free and paid antivirus options, and free versions of paid ones.

downloadmyinboxhelper.com remove chrome

These include Avast, AVG, Bitdefender, and Malwarebytes. For paid programs, I personally use Eset Smart Security and I am satisfied with it. Even if your computer isn't running slowly, you should have some kind of antivirus on your computer, for reasons I've covered in many other articles.

Ok, number four is quick and easy, and that disables Windows animations. One way to do this is to go to the Ease of Access Settings window and tick the box. If possible, turn off any unnecessary animations.

You can also choose Control Panel> System> Advanced System Settings> Performance Settings and customize the animations to use. You can choose the best performance, which disables all, or choose and choose. This will likely make the biggest difference on low power computers.

Next, number five is to keep all of your software up to date. This includes Windows itself, your graphics drivers, and anything else you use on a regular basis. They often release new updates that optimize performance as well as improve security.

Plus, it's just good practice. Number Six. Check Your Power Settings! Especially on laptops, the default setting may be set to 'Balanced' or even 'Sleep' which is good for saving energy. but it will also slow down your computer significantly.

Instead, you might want to change it to high performance, definitely when you're on a desktop and maybe only on a laptop when you're plugged in. I learned this the hard way a couple of years ago I got a brand new laptop that was really meant to be high end. But when I got it, it was SO slow, I couldn't figure out why.

After a few days I finally realized it was in low power mode and when I switched to high performance it was THEN lightning fast, so be sure to check that out. Okay, we're getting a little more technical now, but don't worry, the number So seven is to check your hard drive for errors. You can do this in several ways.

First, you can check the reported health of the hard drive by going to the command prompt, i.e. typing CMD in the start menu.

Then type in 'WMIC' and then 'diskdrive get status'. If they all say OK, one for each hard drive, it means that there aren't any immediate fatal errors that it at least thinks about. If it says anything other than OK then one of your drives may be having problems and you should REPLACE it.

The other way to check for drive errors is to go to the command prompt and run the CheckDisk command by typing 'CHKDSK / f' which will look for errors on your drive and try to fix errors. In turn, if you keep getting a lot of errors, it could mean your drive is failing. This is why you always want to make a backup.

ALWAYS! Number eight. Check Windows file integrity. At the good ol 'command prompt, type' SFC / scannow 'to get t.

Run System File Checker will try to find any system files that are missing or damaged and attempt to repair them. Now there are a lot of opportunities for error messages he might spit out for you. So when you get one you'll just have to google it yourself, ok? I'm not going to help everyone with every random bug they get because I wouldn't know what they are without looking them up too.

Go to number nine. Check for memory errors Memory, it can cause ALL kinds of weird problems that you might never have suspected were related to your RAM. To do this, go to the start menu and look for 'Windows Memory Diagnostic'.

Now, careful, don't hit 'restart now' unless you actually want to restart this second. You'd probably prefer to check the next time you start up and restart whenever you want. After rebooting, it should just start automatically and let you know if something happens.

Or if you want to continue you can use 'F1' to change the test settings, but that's not really necessary.If you're getting a lot of errors, it could mean your RAM is not sitting properly or one of the sticks is defective and needs to be replaced . If the RAM is indeed bad, swapping is really the only option, although there are a couple of non-free things I'll mention in a moment.

So number ten is to just destroy it and start over. Reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows from scratch. This is obviously the most extreme option, but when you're constantly having problems that you can't seem to fix, reinstalling Windows is often the best way to go.

Explaining how to reformat and reinstall Windows is beyond the scope of this article, and if you have no idea what I'm talking about then it is probably NOT something you should be doing. But this list would not be complete without them. Next up are a couple of bonus options, but these actually involve purchasing new hardware, so they're not free.

First, you can buy an SSD to replace your main hard drive small and just boot Windows from it, but SSDs are much cheaper today to get a big one. Let me just tell you that there is probably nothing that will make your computer run faster than an SSD 'not ancient, and once you have one you will never want to come back. The other thing you can do is MAYBE buy more memory depending on how much you have now.

If you have 8GB of RAM or less, and you don't just check your email and type in Word documents, you could probably benefit from getting more. However, I definitely think it would be much more beneficial to get an SSD first. And no unfortunately you can't just download more RAM, how great I think that sums it all up, these should be some great things to try if your computer is running slower than it should be.

If there's anything I forget, please let me know, so maybe leave a comment with any tips you think will also help couple of other articles, you can click these even when you're on the phone. And if you want to subscribe I make new articles every Tuesday, Thursday Saturday. Also consider clicking the bell next to the subscribe button to get notifications as youtube's algorithm probably won't show you my new articles so again i look forward to hearing from you so thanks for watching i will see you next time, enjoy yourself.

How do I fix slow reacting keyboard?

To make sure you've disabled Filter Keys:
  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and type filter out. Then click on Filter out repeated unintentional keystrokes.
  2. Make sure the Use Filter Keys toggle is Off.
  3. Now check on your keyboard and see if this keyboard slow response issue has been sorted. If yes, then great!

But he guessed it was a joke and asked if I could do some tests. At first I thought I could just use an Arduino and send a keystroke to the PC, so that should be good enough to test if this tweak was affecting the keyboard's input lag.

However, since I would not be using a real keyboard, I was concerned that this could give ambiguous results to input lag of a keyboard, then I would have to use a real keyboard and not simulate one with an Arduino. So by using a keyboard I would not only ensure that I get lifelike results, I could then run more tests, such as polling rates affecting the input lag test when the interrupt communication n of the PS / 2 Port really has less input lag than USB, but what do I need to test input lag on a keyboard? I used to use a Logitech G402 gaming mouse to test input lag with gaming monitors, as well as ego -Shooter and fighting games. It was pretty easy to prepare the mouse for input lag testing as I only had to plug an LED directly into the left mouse button switch as this will provide the voltage needed to power the LED.

To measure the key-to-pixel input or lag of a game, all I have to do is point my high-speed camera at the monitor and press the left mouse button. In the high-speed footage captured, I then look for the image in which the LED turns on, and then I count the frames until I see the action triggered by that input, which then gives me the delay between the button being pressed and the pixel gives. What I really like about this testing method is that I get lifelike results as I am using real gaming components rather than simulating them.His testing method shows the Button To Pixel delay affecting a gamer and I wanted the same thing from got my keyboard input delay tests.

Unfortunately that turned out to be much more difficult. If you were to take your keyboard apart, chances are you might find rubber domes and membranes like these on my Logitech G19 and my Logitech G213. My testing method doesn't quite work on these because I don't have the tools needed to connect wires here.

Fortunately, there are also mechanical keyboards that have a switch under each key. So all I need is my soldering iron and get to work. But there is another problem.

While the switch in my Logitech G402 gaming mouse provides enough voltage to power the LED, the switches here in the keyboard don't. So I can't just plug my LED into one of these switches and start testing. This is how I got around this problem.

I bought a small plastic box and a 2 pin push button, then I connected 2 wires to the pins of the 'A' switch on the back of the keyboard board which you can see in this picture here. So if I now press the key on my external box, the keyboard thinks that I have pressed the A key. It doesn't know I didn't actually press the A key on the keyboard.

Now I can trigger an input. But to measure the delay, I also need a visual signal that the input has been triggered. This is where the 2nd pole of this button comes into play, as I use it to turn on an LED that is powered by a USB charger.

There is also a resistor as the 5 volts of the charger would kill the LED but I chose not to include this in this drawing to keep it simple to keep it simple, having not touched the switch of the A button, I can always use that button still use and it works fine. But when I press the button on my external box then the LED turns on and I get the letter A here inside notepadas the keyboard thinks I pressed the A key. Now that I had a working setup for the keyboard input lag test, all I had to do was point my high-speed camera at the monitor, run my tests, and then check the high-speed footage to get the delays.

Now, a side effect of my testing method is that I've completely removed the keyboard switches from the equation. This means that the delays I measure are not affected by how hard or fast you can press a key, or if your keyboard uses Cherry MX black, red, brown, or speed switches, all of which have a different feel as well as actuation travel and - have power. So I think it is a good thing that my testing method is focused on the delay that occurs after the switch triggers the input as this will give us the basic delay that there is nothing you can do about it.

The delay coming from the switch, e.g. B. how hard you can press the switch or what type of switch you have in your keyboard is literally in your own hands.

So far I've only talked about what it takes to take the test, which I'm sorry. But I think it's important to explain my testing method to avoid confusion. Also my patrons and subscribers who m.

My work in progress on Twitter and Facebook asked for a thorough explanation of my testing method. I hope you can understand why I did this. What exactly have I tested now? Modern keyboards use a USB port that offers polling rates of 125, 250, 500 and 1000 Hz.

At a polling rate of 125 Hz, the PC asks the keyboard 125 times per second for its current status, as if a key was pressed since it was pressed last spoke. The communication of the old PS / 2 port, which you can still find even on high-end gaming motherboards, is based on interrupts. This means that a keystroke is sent to the PC almost instantly and 'pauses' what the PC is doing.

The theory that many gamers hold is that this offers less delays than polling the USB connection. There are also PS / 2 to USB adapters that I used to test the PS / 2 connection. These have no electronics inside, as you can see here in this picture, where I opened one.

If you connect a USB keyboard to an adapter, then the keyboard changes from polling to interrupt. However, many, if not most, modern keyboards no longer support these adapters. To do all of these different tests, I bought 3 keyboards USB port and it won't work with or with a PS / 2 adapter.

It also has a USB polling rate of 125 Hz, which Cherry support told me. I had to contact them as there was no information about this keyboard polling rate. That also means that unless your keyboard's specs explicitly mention a USB polling rate greater than 125 Hz, it will likely run at only 125 Hz.

The second test keyboard is the Cherry G80-3000, which also uses USB, but comes with a PS / 2 adapter. And just like the MX-Board 3.0, it also has a USB polling rate of 125Hz according to Cherry Support.

Keyboard number 3 is a Corsair K70 Rapidfire RGB that uses USB and won't work when plugged into a PS / 2 adapter, it also has a switch that allows you to see select a specific polling rate. 1 means 1ms delay or 1000 Hz, 2 means 2 ms delay or 500 Hz, 4 means 4 ms or 250 Hz and 8 sets the polling rate to 8 ms or 125 Hz. You can also check the active polling rate in the Corsair software.

So, all of these keyboards got my special treat where I connected 2 wires to the pins of the A switch on the back of the board. And in order to be able to connect and disconnect my external test box quickly, I simply used a 3.5 mm audio extension cable, as you can see in these pictures here.

Now let's finally take a look at the results of hundreds of high-speed input lag tests that I ran on these keyboards. In my first test, I just set the desktop refresh rate to 180 Hz and then started Notepad. Then I measured the delay between pressing the button on my test box and the appearance of the letter A on the monitor.

In the second test, I ran CS: GO at 300 FPS, with minimal graphics and a refresh rate of 180Hz with V-Sync and G-Sync disabled. I then measured the time between pressing the button on the external box and my player model responding to this input. With the Cherry MX-Board 3.0 I measured an average input delay of 39 ms in the notepad and about the same in CS: GO.

The Cherry G80-3000 showed 1ms more delay on average, but I would argue that this could be within the margin of error. So these are the delays in using USB. But when I then connected the Cherry G80-3000 to the PS / 2 adapter, I noticed about 9 ms less delay on average in the Notepad and about 11 ms less delay on average in the CS: GO.

So the PS / 2 connection really has less input lag. However, if you look at my results from the Corsair K70, then this keyboard crushes the PS / 2 results, even if it is running at a polling rate of only 125 Hz. Again, the keyboard switches make no difference, as I explained earlier in this article.

So if you skipped this part please go back and watch the entire article to understand what these numbers mean here. How can the Corsair K70's input lag be so much lower with the same butt fill rate? I think this shows us that they simply use superior electronics in the keyboard that detects a key press much faster than any other board. After all, the input delay of a keyboard is not only influenced by how quickly you can call up data to the PC, but also by how quickly the keyboard internally recognizes a key press and then makes this data available for transfer to the PC.

This applies to both USB and PS / 2 connections. Now what happens if I increase the query rate? from 125Hz to 1000Hz. Theoretically, this should reduce the input lag by another 7ms.

However, I only measured 3ms less delay in both Notepad and CS: GO. I used the Corsair software to ensure that the polling -Rate changes and I restarted CS: GO every time I changed the query rate. But even after restarting the PC to make sure the keyboard and windows are using the new polling rate, I still have a delay of only 3ms, not the theoretical 7ms.

As expected, the courses in between show only minor improvements in delays. A delay averaging 14.6ms is really good and nothing to seriously complain about, especially considering we have 5.5ms between 2 frames at a display refresh rate of 180Hz.

How about this Windows registry? Tweak I mentioned earlier that was supposed to reduce keyboard input lag? Well, as you can see here, it doesn't work at all and those who said it worked for them just suffered from the placebo effect which just shows how powerful your imagination can be when you want to really believe something . So what can we learn from these tests. If you have an old keyboard that works when you plug it into a PS / 2 adapter this will reduce your keyboard input lag a bit; but I'm not sure you will notice if you buy a new keyboard If you can't find that information anywhere in the specs, the keyboard will most likely use a polling rate of just 125Hz.

That said, the input lag of a gaming keyboard is a decent one Brand may not be that bad even if it has a polling rate of only 125 Hz. But I'd have to test a keyboard like this to be sure when it comes to mechanical keyboards, the key switches make a big difference. As a gamer, you might be tempted to jump on a keyboard that uses switches that have very short travel, like the Cherry MX Speed ​​switches, often tapping incorrectly or triggering a key incorrectly, as placing your thumb on the spacebar is enough pressure can cause your character to jump.

Whenever you want to buy a mechanical keyboard, always go to a store and type on different keyboards for a to find out which type of switch you like best. Again, I want to apologize again for the length of this article and how much time I spent explaining what it takes to run these keyboard input lag tests. But I think this was necessary to avoid confusion and it was used by my patrons and subscribers.

I also want to make it clear that this article was not sponsored by Cherry or Corsair. All in all, this article took over 40 hours to create and it was only possible thanks to the support of my patrons, as I had to buy the hardware I needed myself as my channel is just too small and the number of views on my articles is too low is than companies like Corsair sending me hardware for free that I can keep and torment with my soldering iron. So, if you enjoyed this article and what I'm doing here then it would be great if you could support me on Patreona's YouTube.

Unfortunately, the advertising revenue is no longer enough to run a niche channel like mine. Without the great support that I get from my sponsors, Battle (non) Sinn would no longer exist.
