Has anyone else experienced this? Keyboard keeps missing strokes when typing. Especially so when i type fast. Always missing random letters. Any input appreciated. Thank you.

Stereofunk, this is caused by brushing the touchpad while typing. You can do one of several things to solve it.

Use Fn+F9 to Disable Touchpad when doing lots of typing.

Disable the touchpad in the BIOS.

Enable the Disable Touchpad when an external mouse is plugged in in the Smart Gestures systray app - and plug in a mouse :)

Uninstall the Elantech Touchpad driver.

Stop touching the touchpad when typing :)

This is one of the many reasons I use an external keyboard/trackpad/mouse with laptops.

Hey Stereofunk,

I have the exact same problem, it's so annoying. I already have the touchpad disabled, and it's still happening. Have you got a solution?

Greetings!

mAvbig, thanks for the update, I have included the KBFilter download area in my list of places to get Windows 8.1 updates :)

G750 support areas - The JM download area has the latest of all the G750, with JS/JZ next, the G750JW/JX/JH are out of date:
http://support.asus.com/Search.aspx?SLanguage=en&keyword=g750&ps=10&pn=1

Here is the list of places I look for updates for my G750JH; the best way to get a stable fully functioning G750/G751 is to update all the drivers / apps to the latest Windows 8.1 release.

The G750JW/JX/JH/JM/JS/JZ download areas haven't had new updates for a while, BIOS updates still happen in your model's support area, so check there from time to time.

The G750/G751/551/500/etc share the same basic hardware components; check support download areas for new hardware for newer drivers.

Asus maintains central support areas for hardware component features common to all products, those areas usually have the latest drivers after new hardware releases, sometimes there is a lag before the newer drivers show up there, so still to new product releases support downloads for the latest drivers.

Asus G751 Support / Download areas - Asus hasn't updated all the versions of these support areas, this link discusses the 3 locations were started independantly and not sync'd/updated through to the latest driver releases - check them all to be sure.
