Oh mine does that some times, usually when i type too fast.

If you go slower it should be ok, just type slower

You may think you type fast, when really it's quite fast

ps, mines also a toshiba

you shouldn't be able to out type the speed at which the PC can process what your typing, something is seriously wrong, virus, spyware etc

Definetly a good idea to do a good virus / malmare check.
However I had a similar problem with my Dell, I was getting a paragraph ahead of it!
It took loads of Googling before I found the suggestion to use my laptop without the battery in!
I knew my battery was barely keeping a charge but it was also delaying my typing!

Hey you could be right my battery is only keeping charge for approx 2 hours not sure what its ment to do... will have a look on the net tonight when the kids are in bed,

Its strange thought because its not with everything,

I have a virus scan thing.....and i thought it was working ....will do another full check tonight

I had this problem a couple of weeks ago and found an av forum where someone said it was probably battery related (which I hadn't thought would affect typing speed).
Sure enough after I had disabled the 'compatible battery' icon on the control panel and just left the power adaptor in, the problem went. A new battery may be the answer.
