My TI seems to like repeating keys. A lot. If I type RUN, it'll typically come out as "RRUNNNN", or something similar. Is this normal, or is something up with my keyboard? If it's the keyboard, I have a spare one, so I could fix it, but I don't want to take it apart if it's normal.

Thanks!

The keyboard is only a matrix of switches, replacement should fix your problem.

Before you replace, try contact cleaner. Some keyboards are super easy to clean. I just saved a mac-plus keyboard this way. (little more involved, same principle)
