Check your BIOS for "Keyboard Repeat rate" or something similar and change the value. If that doesn't help or you have no such setting, check in the setup of your OS for a similar setting. If it is a form of windoze, you should find it in the control panel, but sometimes if you installed a separate software/driver for your keyboard, you should find it there.

Nice  simple answer, beat me to it, there is a repeat in most bios's and in most op sys's either could be set to fast.

Could also be weak/bad/broken springs on the keyboard.
Take a thin metal object (butter knife works well), and GENTLY pry the key off the board. See if the looks like one that isn't giving you problems (like one you seldom use).

try also with another keyboard, to see if it is an hardware issue
or try with knoppix; if that works ok, your hard is fine : www.knoppix.org

I've had a keyboard that had the same behaviour... only did that when typing 'd' I think. Does it still happen if you type the 's' slowly?

I'm pretty sure it is actually a problem with the keyboard itself. When I type slowly, the 'd' will not repeat... it's only when typing quickly that it will duplicate.
