Question about Dell OW7658 (J4624SK8115RT7D50) Keyboard
Hello: The keyboard is too sensitive. When striking a key, the character will often repeat (occcasionally twice). As a result, my spell-check is working overtime, and don't even bring up the problems the 10-digit key pad causes with entries made on spreadsheets. Can the sensitivity be adjusted so that one strike equals one character? Thanks.
I too have encountered this problem. It was the q key on a dell latitude d530. After reading a post on an osxforum describing a software issue i attempted to fix the problem by adjusting the sensitivity of the keyboard. This did nothing. Next i attempted to determine if there was a physical issue. I popped the key off and discovered nothing. I also popped out the white plastic 'scissors' that the key fixes too and still discovered nothing. I looked under the rubber... nothing. compared it to another key... nothing. All in all I could find nothing abnormal about this key other than the fact that it was super sensitive. so I began to experiment. I put a piece of paper under the rubber. This made the sensitivity just about perfect so I left the little bit of paper in place, reassembled, and have had no further problems. This is ghetto i know but it worked for me...

Go to control panel, then keyboard, under the speed tab, adjust repeat delay to long and the repeat rate to slow. This will not "fix" the problem entirely but will help a lot. The only problem is that this will affect holding down the arrow keys to scroll through a sentence or up or down a page when word processing (but I think this may be the lesser of two evils).

If you are using Linux, this can be a HAL related problem (strange but true). Turn of the Hardware Abstraction Layer and check if it helps.
