I purchased a Gateway SX 2865-UR338. It came with Windows 8 already installed. Got computer up and running but keyboard decided to not work at all. Called technical support at Gateway who walked me thru the steps and it is now working. When I use the keyboard to type, the words take about 3-4 seconds before they show up on screen. I went in and did all the adjusting that could be done and it's still the same. I'm not very computer savvy, but would buying another keyboard solve the problems or does it have some thing to do with Windows 8?? Everything else works like a breeze except this keyboard

Have you tried turning off the filter keys?


Open the Control Panel and click on Ease of Access.


Click on Set up filter keys.


Place a check mark in the Turn off filter keys check box.

You computer is running at a slow rate due to access resources being used. Open task manager, see if your processor is being pegged to the max and then locate  whats eating up your resources in processes and programs. Its akin to stuffing 10 pounds of
chit in a 1 pound bag.
