Keyboard will not type the same character twice in a row

When I am typing (in any program) my keboard will not type the same character twice in a row. The only way around the problem seems to be waiting about 2 seconds before I type the character for the second time. I thought it was the keyboard so I went out and got a new one but the problem persists. I am running XP.

SOURCE: inspiron 1545 keyboard problem

This is going to sound really weird but I found a fix. I've got a Dell studio XPS laptop and was getting annoyed by the same phenomenon. I discovered the problem was more common when my thumbs were close to/touching the touchpad. I cranked down the sensitivity of my touchpad and things got a lot better. Probably works for many different kinds of laptops.

For my machin - Steps to fix:
Mouse Control Panel: Dell Touchpad Tab: Click to change Dell Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Settings: Touchpad Sensitivity: Move it from near "Light Touch" to the middle.

I hope this helps someone. :-)

How to type @ symbol


I am not familiar with this particular keyboard, but it sounds like you are not finding that symbol (@) on the keyboard. On most keyboards it seems to be the shift of the "2" key (at the top of the keyboard, not on a separate number keypad). I checked keyboards from three manufacturers, and that was the case on all three. However, if that key is not working properly, you could define "(a)" or something similar to be auto-corrected to the "@" symbol. Finally, you could try typing the ASCII character by a keystroke combination such as Alt-0064. In MS Word, when I type that combination (make sure to use the numeric keypad, not the number row keys), I get the "@" symbol. The same works in many programs.

You might need to replace the keyboard. It should be a fairly inexpensive fix for a computer shop.

Have you ever tried putting in another keyboard? If the
other keyboard works, it's definite that you have a defective keyboard, and you must get a replacement. This is my observation based from your comments that there is no problem with the keyboard settings in your PC.

If you note which keys type double characters you can use the backspace key to backup one character as a work around, but it sounds like you may need to replace it. If it is wireless, try new batteries first and also try another keyboard if you can borrow one.

My keyboard


yaa bcoz you have made your Numlock On thats why keyboard gives you these characters. You can see a led 'on' on your keyboard near Num Lock.

To make it off press and hold Fn kye (left side bottom row of the keboard) and press Num Lock kye (Top row right side). It will make your Num Lock on/off.

Thanks
