I have a Dell Inspiron 1764 and I "upgraded" to Windows 8.1. After I installed the new ALPS touchpad driver it started having a delay. After I type or use the keyboard at all I cannot click using the touchpad for about 2-3 seconds. I turned off the touchcheck feature and that did not help. I have tried different drivers, different settings, everything. I am almost positive I will need to change a registry key, but I am not sure which one.

 

I did a ton of Googling and could not find anyone with the same problem. So does anyone know what's going on?

Read this article. Not sure if it's your issue but sounds similar.

 

If you are a gamer who got caught up in the excitement of Windows 8.1 being released last week, you may be regretting your decision to upgrade right now. The reason? Some games have been rendered unplayable due to serious mouse lag on Microsoft’s latest operating system.Microsoft has changed the way the mouse interactions work in Windows 8.1 and any game that does not read raw mouse data (or DirectInput) is now experiencing severe mouse lag.

That is exactly what is happening! Thank you very much! I'm glad to know I'm not completely hopeless!
