  1. Running windows vista on my laptop and when I try to do the same key stroke more then once in a row... it wont repeat the keystroke.

    control panel
    printers and other hardware
    keyboard.

    there should be a couple of settings to allow you to adjust it.

    If you have already tried that or it doesnt work, let me know with another post and the TS community will figure something out.

    Is this a new laptop or had it been working fine all along and then suddenly this problem started to happen? Does it happen for all keys on the keyboard? What does Device Manager say about the status of your keyboard?
