Hi Steve, I am reading your solutions for more than one year. I’ve a problem. When I type in MS word the character in displayed one by one. I mean the characters are displayed very slow. what may be the reason and it solution. Thanks.
There’s more than one thing that could be responsible for the problem. But I do have a handy free tool provided by Microsoft that can help with many Office issues.
Start by clicking on Control Panel
Then select Programs.
Now choose Programs and Features.
You’ll get a window with a long list of programs. Select Word and then choose Change from the choices at the top.
A window will pop up offering the choices of Add/Remove Features, Repair, Remove or Enter Product Key. Select Repair. You can then choose Quick Repair or Online Repair.
You may need to restart your computer after the repairs are complete.
If that doesn’t solve the problem, check both your graphics and your printer drivers to make sure they are up to date. You can usually go to the manufacturer’s website to obtain the latest drivers. If that still doesn’t help, you may have to consider re-installing Word.
Hope this helps.
