Problem with Apple Extended Keyboard II

(1/1)

Jaydoublem:
I use an Apple Extended II with an iMate on a Powerbook G4.
The problem is that a lot of times when I type a W, it comes up twice. This is extremely annoying when I close tabs or windows in a program because it closes 2 of them. When I reconnect the cable of the keyboard, it usually solves the problem for a little bit.
Do you think that this is a software/hardware/iMate problem? How can I resolve this? Thanks

xsphat:
I'd blame the iMate. I have one and have used it a lot in the last couple months and I actually have to disconnect the keyboard in order to shut down my MacBook. Thinking of picking up a new Alps keyboard because of it.

Jaydoublem:
alright thanks for the reply

Jaydoublem:
On the "thetalkshow" the guy says that he replaced his 14 year old Extended Keyboard II after he started getting duplicate E's. So that seems like the same problem that I am having.
