If you go to the control panel and then keyboard you can make the autorepeat feature to occur only after a very long press and then only repeat at a very slow rate but i'm not sure you can turn it off without a registry edit or maybe a third party tool...i'll look for one.

Many bios also has an entry for enabling/disabling keyboard repeat and adjusting the rate which varies usually from 6 to 30 times/second
