Windows 8.1 keyboard lag after update.

#1
After updating my OS from Windows 8 to 8.1, I have started to expierience wierd keyboard lag. I mostly notice this when gaming. When I am pressing a key for a longer time, it gets "stuck" for a few seconds, and all other keys become unresponsive. I had this issue last time when I upgraded to Windows 8.1, only this time I don't have mouse lag.

I am using a Samsung laptop with a Microsoft USB keyboard (My main one) connected, because I had some broken keys on my laptops keyboard. Now my laptops keyboard is replaced, but I use the USB keyboard for gaming, because I am used to it.

I have installed all the latest updates, and I am waiting for Windows 10 reservation.

Sorry for my bad english..

w8.1 is unstable... patch to at least 8.1.1 should fix any driver issues in most motherboards... also note when updating that there is a difference between a system shutdown/ restart and and just pressing system restart after installing a Microsoft patch that adds main board drivers
