Hello, I have a problem where i can not click after a key has been pressed on the keyboard. I am using a laptop that has it's own keyboard and touchpad but i am using an external usb keyboard and mouse. It did use to work but i had to reboot my computer and now i can not get it to work.

The delay happens on almost all keys apart from the arrow keys, making it hard to play games as i can not move and shoot. The touchpad drivers are synaptics it comes up as Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad in the device manager. I would also like to mention that before i rebooted it there was an option to turn of the delay in settings> devices> mouse and touchpad. But after i rebooted the two have became separate and no longer shows the option.

The things i have tried to fix it

Turn of the palm check & Smartsense (Depends on the driver version)
Update the drivers via device manager and downloaded them from the Synaptics website
Rebooted again
Disabled the touchpad
Uninstall and Reinstall touchpad drivers

I would not mind not being able to use the touchpad if that would fix the issue as i have been having this problem for a long time now.

I only have one external keyboard but it does happen on both the laptop keyboard and the external one. I have tried a different mouse same thing happens. I have also tried it with both external mouse and keyboard unplugged using only the laptop keyboard and touchpad, it still does not work. I am pretty sure it is a software problem.
To find out if the problem is your current software, temporarily boot your computer up into Linux. Then try playing some online games or whatnot to see if the same problem is still occuring. When done testing, remove your Linux USB and restart your computer back into Windows.

How to create a Linux Mint 9 USB Flash Drive:
  1. Download and run the "Universal USB Installer", select "Linux Mint 9" and follow the onscreen instructions.
  2. Reboot your PC and set your system BIOS or Boot Menu to boot from the USB device, save your changes and reboot.
  3. Your computer should now boot up into your very own Live USB Linux Mint (Portable Linux Mint 9) Operating System from your flash memory stick.

    That's all there is to it. Click on a browser and start surfing the 'net.

I don't have a 2gb usb.

I have tried the things on the page such as going into the more mouse settings and turning smartsense off.
I have also tried the hp support assistance and download the drives from there is also does not work.

The only thing i can think of is doing it is. I have not turned of the touchpad delay in

Settings>Devices>Mouse & Touchpad.

There used to be a section where you could turn it to no delay. Which i had done before i rebooted it for the first time.
But now every time i reboot the setting are split into.


But none of them have the touchpad delay option in it. I Also think i recall it working fine with that off. (Maybe i turned smartsense off as well in additional mouse settings as well, i can not remember.)

So i think while i have turned the smartsense off in the additional mouse settings it is not actual turned off in the devices so it is still doing it. I am not sure if that is possible but that is all i got.
