Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Easy fix! :
    "All you have to do is go down to where the time is shown on your laptop and show hidden icons. There should be an icon shaped like a timer, just click on that and it'll come up with your keyboard settings. You need to untick the boxes that say filter keys or anything of the sort. Make sure the time it takes for your computer to accept keystrokes is 0.5 seconds. Then just click apply and it should be fine.''

    I got this from another site and it worked like a charm for me and my husband's laptop. Hope it works for you too!
