Would you buy a new laptop if this started happening?

I can't type some of the letters as there's about a 5 second delay. The screen becomes very dim when unplugged. The sceensaver freezes and doesn't show the password bar.

It's an ASUS that was purchased 2 years ago for only $200.

    you get what you pay for. if you buy a $200 PC, it will last a couple years. if you buy a $450 computer, it may last 5 years.

    if you buy a $600 laptop, it should last at least 7 years, as long as you don't abuse it.

    i still have mine from a decade ago. still works good.

    ask before you buy to be sure you get the most for your money.

    A delay in typing is normally an issue with the Windows software, and not the physical laptop.  

    How bright the screen is when the laptop is unplugged is a setting in the Power Options in the Control Panel.  On many laptops there is also a key on the keyboard for raising and lowering the brightness.

    the screen saver issue sounds like a corrupt file.  Again, that is Windows software related, not hardware related.

    However, a 2 year old ASUS purchased for $200 probably should be replaced.  At that price it has to be a really low end unit.

    That's a sign of a very low battery. Charge the laptop's battery, if it won't charge properly replace the battery.  If it works fine when plugged in there's nothing wrong with the laptop itself.

    Change the batteries of the keyboard, or get a new keyboard
