Just bought and installed this card with Win7 Pro
Asrock MB
AMD Phenom Quad core 2.5x4
2gb RAM.
LG W2234s VGA monitor

Now the Graphics card works great on games, smooth graphics on everything ive tried.
The problem is on typing!!!
It lags and freezes when you type, which makes typing tedious & frustrating. As well as slow!!!

I will give an example by typing the above again, without correcting it, as it types it with all errors still in; i really need with this if not i will have to return it and buy something else.

Now the graphics card works great on gasmooth graphics everything ive tried.The problis the typing!!!

This appears to work fine on the 64 bit Win7 version, but the problem exists on the 32 bit Win7. which is the version i use most.

Is the driver only 64bit compatible?

Is their a known problem?

Hi, Nvidia have 1 driver for Win 7 32 bit and 1 driver for Win 7 64 bit. I use Win 7 64 bit and have a Asus GTX285 card, usin Nvidia 64 driver, you should use the Nvidia 32 bit driver for your Win 7 32 bit.

Double checked and the 32 bit driver is installed.

Its also the latest.

Ive now noticed that it actually freezes the display, not the cursor, but the display.

I can play games with no effect. And it doesnt matter if it is on the Net or using a Prog like Word it still doesnt put everything i type on screen. So i have to watch in case it  missed something.

It also will stop me pulling the page down when it freezes, even tho the cursor still moves.

Im glad i installed 64bit as well as the 32bit Win7 on a dual boot.

But needless to say im not impressed with it on 32bit which makes it useless.

If a solution isnt found soon the card will have to be removed and sent back as faulty.

Are you usin Microsoft Words when you are typin? There are some settings in the Nvidia control panel for Ms Words.It is in the 3D settings, program settings list.Don't know if it helps, but you always try.

Its not just in MS word, its whatever you type anywhere.

As i said above the whole screen freezes for a second or 2; but you can still move the cursor.

Do you use the keyboard for your game playing like you do the typing?  It actually sounds more like the keyboard or keyboard connection than the graphics card.  If you type in a sentence without looking at the screen and only at the keyboard and type it in slow enough that you know you're not making any mistakes and when your done look up - if the words are still spelled wrong with skipped letters and stuff then it has to be the keyboard/connection.  The display only shows what's there.  (or your tyoping sucks  lol )  Is your keyboard wireless?  Do you have a different one you can plug in and try (wireless or not).  Shoot, buy one from walmart/your equivalent, and try it.  If it doesn't fix it bring it back.  Can you put something like a movie on part of the screen and open word on the other side and while watching the movie portion of the screen just type in letters and see if the movie skips and stutters.  If not, Again it must be the keyboard.  Heck man, if you can play games and it don't skip there's no reason for the display to freeze while doing the simplest thing a computer can do - word processing for goodness sake.  Anyway,  if you wouldn't mind giving those few things a try and let us know?
PS  Doesn't sound like vid drivers to me if everything else works.

sutek, i opened a film and it plays fine, typing still produces errors and film does not freeze.

will try another keyboard; but i still dont think this is the problem, if it was i would get the  same reaction on 64bit as 32bit.

Will let you know once i try the keyboard

I haven't see any graphical glitches with my ENGT240 512MB GDDR5 on Win7 32-bit, either with the 191.07 driver from Asus or the 195.62 driver from Nvidia.
