Why is my laptop's keyboard input suddenly extremely slow?

Without making any changes in my hardware settings or installing any new software, I am finding that my keyboard input is suddenly very, very slow. So slow that even typing this message is excruciating.
Here is an example:
By the time I finished typing this sentence the only words actually on the screen were "By the time".
And then I had to wait like eight more seconds for it to catch up.
This is especially weird because my system does not otherwise seem any slower, and I am still able to run multiple programs without difficulty. I've experimented with changing performance settings and shutting down all other applications, but that does not seem to have made any difference.
Thoughts? Theories? Suggestions?
