typing speed problem in mandrake 9.1

I am having a problem in linux mandrake 9.1. I installed it on my laptop sometime ago. the problem is that when I type at normal speed the characters are repeated twice or thrice. It seems like it cannot take into account the bounce factor of the laptop keys. I also have winxp on my laptop and the keyboard works fine in that. Please let me know what can I do to solve this as it is a major headache for me. I have tried disabling repeated key feature and bounce feature but it doesnt provide a solution.
