View Full Version : Computer doing random 1 second pauses

July 31st, 2015, 08:01 PM
Over the past two days my computer has been acting very strange. Every few seconds it acts as if its pressing esc or alt tab. It's hard to explain but for example, when I use Skype and try to type in the text box, the bar at the top that reads "Skype" flashes once and leaves me unable to type for the period of time that it flashes for. It returns to normal quickly but this action occurs every 4 or 5 seconds making it very difficult to type and navigate the screen. It doesn't only happen in Skype either. It happens in every program. In Chrome, the window doesn't flash but I still get that 1-1.5 seconds where I can't type for some odd reason. I don't think it's a keyboard issue because the problem occurs even when the keyboard is unplugged. For information purposes I use a razer blackwidow BF4 edition keyboard and a razer taipan mouse. By the way, the issue also occurs when scrolling with the mouse's scroll wheel. However, I do not think it is a hardware issue. I have reinstalled the software "Razer Synapse" which allows for macros and other features for my keyboard and mouse twice and it didn't help at all. If anyone could help I would be very happy! If more information on the issue is needed I would be more than happy to provide it but as of now I don't understand much other than what was already said. Thank you.
