I probably type about average speed. A couple of months ago I notice that I have to wait a second or two (sometimes) for characters to appear on the screen. I use Notepad++ to build websites. I'm not sure that's the only program where I have this problem, but it's the one I do most of my typing in. It's only been a short while since I did a complete hd format. I have tons of RAM. And besides-- I never had this problem before. Any suggestions?
