keyboard does not let me type same key twice
My keyboard does not let me input a key more than once. for example, if i am typing the word letter. it does not let me type in the 2nd t. the only way i could add the 2 letter is if i use an entirely diferent buton. but this is not only specific to leters. even the backspace key and space bar, i canot type seamlesly. you can se in this and the last sentance that every word that neds two of the same keys, it doesn't work. I have to use the curser afterwards to ad in the leter i ned. even the space bar and backspace key does not work twice in a row.

is this a hardware isue or is it somekind of software problem?

it's so anoying. i can't even type www. without takeing like 20 seconds. help please!

Borrow another keyboard and try. That is the simplest way of narrowing it down.

Check your setting under Accessibility Options (or whatever XP calls it - I use Vista).

There are settings there to ignore repeated keystrokes.
