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.

How can i manage my typing skills i make a 31wpm but i need 35wpm how can?


Try downloading a free "learn how to type" program from a shareware provider like Cnet. Go to www.cnet.com and click on downloads, then type "typing" into the search box and check the "free" or "free to try" box off to the left side of the page. Download one of the programs to your computer and use it to practice "home row" to gain speed.

Go through the typing drill speed tests and clock your time. The more you practice, the better you become. Practicing home row speeds up your skills pretty quickly.

I cannot get backslash on logiboard keyboard


1) With your NUMLOCK on, hold the ALT key down and type 092 on your numeric keypad.  When you have NUMLOCK on, ALT and a 3-figure digit gives you special characters.  092 is the backslash on UK and Spanish keyboards, so hopefully it'll work for you.  If you get something different, you'll have to try different numbers until you find it

or 

2) In Start --> Programs --> Accessories there's a program called Character Map.  This gives you a list of available characters

or

3) copy and paste this one:  \

What is the fastest way of typing an é? I have been going through start, accessories, system tools, character map, copying, pasting, but there must be a quicker way?


If you are doing this on a laptop then you are stuck. About the only way is to use character map and copy as you have been or to try to program a quick start key to paste it.

The ALT-0233 is meant to be used on a 101 key pc type keyboard and the laptops do not use the same layout. Your only options would be to use a external keyboard instead of the built in one. I've tried a few things such as the built in numpad using function and an external numpad but neither worked for me. Your laptop may be different so it worth trying.

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.
