    Can anybody help with this annoying problem? it is to do with the directional keys, thre problem is they will not smooth scroll ie; when i hold a key down they just move the cursor only when i hit the key, and in games especially 1st. person one's i have to keep hitting the up or down arrow key...it's so darn annoying this only happens in windows xp....if i use windows me everything is fine...i've tried going into control panel and altering the settings and also switching the scroll lock on and off but to no avail....any idea's?

    When you say that you went to the control panel and altered the settings, do you mean that you altered the repeat delay in the keyboard properties section?

    I would check in the bios for a key repeat setting. And then make sure that in XP the keyboard control panel is set to allow key repeats.
