Bought 2 Lenovo B570s in late October, and noticced about 2 weeks after I bought them when I started actually using them, that the keys would frequently repeat at random while typing. Some keys do it much more than others, and in facct some keys don't do it at all I don't believe. The worst offenders are on the left side of the keyboard in the middle and bottom rows, though I believe all the keys on the left sside do it to some degree, some keys just aren't used nearly as much as others. I think I've seen the problem on the right side too, but very rarely and maybe not even all the keys. I'm intentionally not correcting the duplicate keys that appear as I type this so you can see exxactly what I'm talking about andd how often it occcurrs. BOTH of my brand new Lenovo B570s bought at the same store 1 day apart have the samme problem, so I find it very hard to believe that others out there haven't experienced this, it can't possibly be that much of a fluke, though it could be batch related. If anybody has seen this, please reply (don't reply if you haven't).

Thanks. I'll happily give it a shot, although I think it's related to the springs in these keyboards. Almost seems as if they're so springy that they periodically rebound enough to trigger a second letter. Of course the keyboard doesn't have any specific drivers, so I guess I'll be hoping for a bios update to solve it.
