Sometimes I have to tap keys a ton of time just to get them to work, usually the G, shift, and backspace keys. This never happened with windows(the only thing that ever worked better than it did in linux), but I don't have windows any more so I've got to get this issue fixed.

How about booting from a live Ubuntu cd & see if it still happens.

Hey I just used this command:


sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg


I saw it somewhere on the furum and it seems to work, thanks for your suggestion I also tried that.

Well it's back to messing up again, I don't know if it's a hardware issue or software, maybe I'll take the lappy apart tonight and check.
