Hi.I have this problem.My PC is getting slower while holding any key. For example (If I am just standing in GTA4 i get 55fps but when i start to hold some key the FPS is same but the game is slow) the same problem is in Vista too.Without holding a key the movie is good but while holding it is slow(excuse me my English I am Slovak).also the sound while holdin a key is scratchy. :(  Im running Vista 64bit sp1

my performance : CPU:p henom II x4 940
GPU:Sapphire HD 4850 512mb
2x2gb kingston RAM
PSU:550W coolermaster

Maybe your computer is running a bit hot?

Have you dusted recently?

Remember that when standing still in a game it is less for your computer
to process and do...when you move you will experience a drop in fps

Pressing a key would make me think something is up with your processor if the slowing is THAT bad...maybe a defrag...a lot of general slowing can be caused by viruses,overheating ect...

I have had this problem with GTA Vice City. Believe it or not, installing the software that is on the keyboard manufacturers website "should" fix your issue.
