    Sorry if this has been mentioned before. I just got the Keyboard kit and hooked it up to my XP computer. The problem I'm having is that sometimes a key will stick in the middle of typing a word and I'll get 20-30 repepeats of a letter (like that).

    The other issue is sometimes it pauses for a second and will be missing letters (99999999999999999ty'r

    I left those things in bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbsecse they actually happened while typing. :)

    Does anyone know of a fix for this? I tried looking for drivers but couldn't find anything.

    Thankssssssssssssssssss y help

    (Thanks for any help). :)

    Update: I rebooted my computer and the problem seemed to go away foooooooooooooooor a bit. But after a few hours it came back.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry to bump again but I think I solved the problem.

    I did two things:

    1.) I ran Windows Update but I don't think that is what did it.

    2.) I had the keyboard plugged into a PCI expansion USB board so I unplugged it and plugged it into the USB port on my motherboard and the problem went away. My PC is pretty old so that may have contributed to inconsistent communication from the PCI board.

    Hopefully this helps someone else with a similar problem. :)
