On my vostro 1700, when I'm typing or otherwise using the keyboard, the
whole machine hangs every 10 seconds for about 2 seconds. then it recovers
and the missed keystrokes all appear
when I say it "hangs" I mean that apart from the mouse pointer moving,
nothing else happens on the screen (task manager stops updating, animated
gifs stop animating etc). the CPU load is low and there is no sign of disk
when I say "typing" i mean making more than one keystroke every few seconds.
if I lay off the keyboard completely it's fine
i've had the machine for about 6 months and it's just started doing this. it
seems to me like some kind of driver or hardware problem.
any clues as to what it might be ? would vista SP1 likely have any effect or
should i just call the manufacturers?
