Have you popped the key off the keyboard and seen if there was any dirt under the key?

Is this a laptop? So you tried a whole new keyboard and still the same issues? Is the driver up to date and working properly?

Go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > Keyboards > click on appropriate keyboard > click on the driver tab > click on update driver

Might be a little different for XP, but should work something like that.

Hmmm, so you have tried two different keyboards and on each the exact same key does not work untill you press it twice and then it still doesn't work correctly? That is strange. At this point we have to assume it is the PC. Any others out there with ideas?

Mine does not, but keep in mind I am running Windows 7 not XP. Not sure if that has anything to do with it though. When you say "my other pc" are you using a different keyboard with it or the same one?
