Angry keyboard issue on a Toshiba Satellite 2400.




Was up all!!

I got a problem... I installed mandrake 9 on my Toshiba Satellite 2400 notebook and the keyboard doubles up letters when I type, I have to slow down my typing to stop it from happening. I tried some of the settings but still ddoouubblliinngg up....lol . its drivin me nuts. Please help!!!! Im a newbie and am really enjoying the challenge of learning the os and its frustrating that something so trivial is slowing me down...

Thanks in advance....

I gave that a try but it didnt help, whhat is happening is from time to time when i type a letter then imediatly after that letter i type another letter the first letter will double, even with the repeat key option turned off. oh well, just a weard issue with this notebook i guess....

My Satellite 2400 did the same thing; I found a fix <a href="http://www.met.ed.ac.uk/~hcp/t9000.html">here</a> from a guy with a similarly challenged Tecra 9000. It works fine now, though I'd recommend setting a value even smaller than the one he recommends if you type at all quickly.
