Help! This problem is driving me crazy. Have had a Dell 1500 Vostro laptop for almost a year. When I go into either Word or Notepad and start typing anything (I type around 40 wpm), everything starts off great then at no certain time the words stop appearing on the screen. I have to stop typing and let the screen catch up to me. The words I type will then catch up and I can view them on the screen. Everything is fine for another line or two and then the same thing happens. Have called Dell on several occasions...no help. Replaced hard drive, reloaded Microsoft Office several times. Even deleted Office thinking that it was somehow corrupted, tried Notepad again with same problem. Has anyone experienced this? Any suggestions? I've spent way too many hours trying to figure this out. Thanks!
