Hi Olivier,

A point of view programmer :
- tired keyboard : the pressed key returns to its no contact state after a random delay.
  The computer awaits this no contact keyboard by waiting.
The problem could finish with time (the  supple of the keyboard get back).
- Modified computer, with synchronous problem between memory and CPU .
I Hope that this can help you.

thanks for the ideas, I think that the answer is closer to solution #2 than #1. It never hangs after I press on the first square, and for castle, it also always hangs between third and fourth square.

Best regards,
Alain

Hi,

I have bought a Novag Scorpio but it does not seem to work fine, althought it does not seem to far...

Very often when I finish to enter my move, for example e2 e4, the LEDs stay on and the display stays on "e2 e4" for quite a long time before the computer changes the display to show the clocks and starts to think.
In the case of a king side castle, it hangs after I press h1 and waits before turning the f1 LED.
This delay varies from a few seconds to almost two minutes.

I have tried to change levels, to do a reset but it does not change anything.

Has anybody seen such symptoms ?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
Alain
