Computer Lag And Keyboard Poor Action Registration

So, before i start, please excuse any spelling mistakes, my keyboard is completely messed up and incredibly slow as i type this but i will try my best to include as many details as possible when i have a lagging keyboard that, as i am typing this, is still showing off the bit about how slow it is in my message. (yes, it is actually that slow)

So to start off i want to say my laptop recently updated to windows 10, as in, i did the update like, on the 28th i believe. My specs are relatively fine, 4gb of ram, an ok gpu and an ok processor. I can usually run games well without frame drops or my computer almost "exploding". For example, i can run CS:GO at 100fps on my settings.

But that is not point. Yesterday i jumped into a game and quickly noticed i could not do multiple actions at once. To give an example, i could walk forwards or left, but the second i tried to walk diagonally and then jump, the computer would not register it. I would continue walking forwards, then when i canceled the action by pressing another key, only then would i see the part where i walk left and jump. I did not think much of it at first, i just restarted my computer, then, i quickly noticed that my typing was also delayed, i can type very quickly so i quickly noticed that sometimes, my keyboard presses would be delayed. I would be typing up a sentence and have the letters simply not fully appear, a few would show up, then it will freeze, then suddenly, they would either slowly start to pop up, or they would all appear in a fraction of a second.

Going back to the games, even when i pressed just a single key and let go of the keyboard, the character on screen would continue to do that action for a few more seconds. I started testing some things out and came to the conclusion that the computer now had a problem with performing multiple actions. When watching a video, if i began to type on another tab or even on the same tab, the typing would slow down. Now that i turned off the music i had in the background the typing has sped up a little, the games still function poorly.

I have attempted to defrag my drive, restart the pc, go into the keyboard settings and to change power settings. I can not exactly pin point when these issues started to occur, i just started to notice them over a short time span and have been unsuccessful with pin pointing what it was i did that caused this.

On a last side note, though the games still function very poorly, i noticed that when i removed the battery my typing sped up and these issues did not occur with the impact they did when i had the battery on the computer. The games still had the registry problem, as did the typing on some of the situations typed previously, but it was slightly less of an annoyance. Even without the battery in use, i still suffer from these issues. Being only 17 years of age with a school to attend to, i find myself unable to be able to, at any time, go to any tech store and pay for fixes or to buy a new computer in general, at least not out of nowhere.

I would appreciate any help with this situation, i have been searching for help on many websites but only now have i actually decided to post something like this.

Thank you for reading.
 
Well if the battery being out is giving you less problems, than when it is in, it could be a couple of things. One, the battery could be going and becoming more of a drain the the charger. Two, the charger cord could be going and it is having trouble running the computer, when you are using anything that requires a lot of resources, and also charge the battery. If it is not getting enough power, it will not charge and will cause other issues when using.

Also, you may want to consider uninstalling Windows 10 and going back to your old OS version. 10 tends to be a serious drain on resources.
