multiple displays of characters with one push of the key.

Hi, I have a Ultra5 440MHz system running Solaris 2.6 (Rev 5.6) and have a problem with the keyboard. When I push a key it prints characters very quickly. If I push a key very fast I get maybe 3 characters.
So, I am thinking bad keyboard. I borrow a known good keyboard, samething and the supposedly bad keyboard works fine on the other Ultra5.
I swapped hard drives still didn't fix the problem.
So something is inherently wrong with this Ultra5. Am I missing something in the OpenBoot, what? It looks the same as the other Ultra5s. I talked to a colleague today and he said he had the same problem but could never fix it so he just threw the box away. His budget is bigger than mine, I would like to save the box.
Thanks, Mike

maybe a "set-defaults" on the obp level helps?

do you mean set everything back to defaults in the OpenBoot?

"stty sane" may be what you are looking for.
