Explain my slightly annoying keyboard problem!

I have a Thinkpad T430. I can type anywhere up to 120 words per minute. When I type certain words at high speed my system freezes for a split second - long enough to be noticeable and to break my rhythm but not long enough that anyone watching would probably notice. Sometimes it registers the key-presses, sometimes it doesn't. What's going on here? [more inside]

My hinkPadhas aproblem with i's keyboard.

I just bought a used Thinkpad T61 and the e,t, and space bar keys work intermittently. The keyboard is reasonably clean and nothing is obstructing the keycaps underneath. I have taken out the keyboard and reseated the keyboard connector. Is this just a bad keyboard or should i be worried about something else? (os is linux/ubuntu)

My Thinkpad's n key doesn't work most of the time (but does work sometimes if I hit it in the right spot/from the right angle and hold for a bit)...what troubleshooting/fixes can I try before I give in and replace the whole keyboard? [more inside]

How to fix a burred laptop screw

I am trying to replace a laptop keyboard but the final screw has burred and neither the regular or precision screwdriver works. If someone suggests that I go to repairman and 50 bucks to fix this, I am likely to do serious damage to this laptop (namely by throwing it against a wall). Any ideas? [more inside]
