I'm also experiencing severe typing lag but this only happens (so far) when alt + tabbing from the game i'm currently playing: grim dawn. When i'm not playing the game, i don't experience this typing lag.
Currently using drivers 16.12.2 since 16.12.1 gave me mouse corruption but, @ the same time, ever since i've installed these drivers, i started getting this lag. Made a small video of it but i forgot to mention in the video that, when i say "notice the mouse", the mouse's icon is incorrect and it only becomes correct after the typing is finished. In the post i'm typing it has the shape of a huge "I" letter, which is normal, but in the previous post (#79 in the video) it should have the standard arrow icon and it doesn't, @ least while the typing isn't finished. It becomes correct once the typing ends. Drivers 16.12.2 seem to have fixed the corruption i had with the mouse (@ least it hasn't happened, so far) but this annoying typing lag is ... well ... annoying ...
For reference, i'm using the extra large inverted mouse scheme that comes with windows 7.
These are my system specs.
My problem got fixed: it was something (dunno what exactly) with the game.
Mailed the developer with this issue and he told me several steps to perform: after doing what he said, the problem disappeared.
So you came to the AMD forums to ask for help with your problem also and then you got it fixed but you were unwilling to share what you learned.
P.S. There is No " i " in Team
Share what i have learned? I still dunno what it was: just that it was something game related.
Was asked to do the following:
- Run the repair.exe utility (It is usually located here):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common/Grim Dawn
- Update DirectX:
- Update VC++ Redistributables, mainly 2015 86x
- Verify Files as described here:
- Right click on the game icon and select Run the game as "Administrator"
Did all except the VC++ one because i was unsure which version i should get: the 86x or the x64, since my OS is x64.
After doing this, no more lag while typing.
Tbh, i was convinced it was the drivers because i 1st noticed this AFTER installing 16.12.2. Turns out i was wrong and it was game related.
Thank You kindly for your reply and your information, sorry to come off condescending, just been on so many sites that people get a fix but then they never share what they learn.
As to your end question Sometimes you can have both, X86 is for 32 bit OS and The x64 is for 64 bit OS. if your lag is fixed without the VC++ I would leave well enough alone, and worry about it when the time comes that you may need it. Not sure how many games you play but they usually install VC++ files.
Take Care and Happy Computing.....
