    For example posting on TSR, it will randomly not type some letters like it is still loading or something?

    And before you say it's a virus I have good anti-virus software that I use regularly.

    Could be a number of things (and virus is still a potential cause but unlikely).

    Low specs are causing lag, thus not all keystrokes are being registered. You'd notice general slugish performance if this were the case.

    Something is wrong with your keyboard. Damage to keys or circuitry underneath. If the issue happens elsewhere and consistently this is my best guess.

    Issues with your software. If it were just on TSR for example I'd say maybe there's something wrong with your web browser. Potential issue if it only happens in specific software.

    Those are a few I can think of but it could be any manner of things.

    The title of this thread freaked me out; I thought you were gonna say your laptop sometimes types weird messages to you that's a good idea for a short story though if there are any writers around
