Typing in word is slow

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
When I'm typing up my notes Word is slow to display what I am typing in. I would type in a sentence and have to wait around 3 seconds before the words appear. I didn't have this problem a few months back...

I thought a short vid might be easier to understand what the problem is.

Ignore the spelling mistakes. I'm not known for my punctuation skills.

Cpu usage is around 4% and Physical memory is at 45%.

Try freeing up some RAM in the task manager by killing stuff that you aren't using.

When I have that problem (and yes I have it often) I just restart my computer.

Reboots always fix it for me.

Try opening and closing Word too.

I've had this problem in forums/other browser based stuff as well.
