I have both an internal and external keyboard but the key-repeat has stopped working. I've tried changing both 'Key Repeat' and 'Delay Until Repeat' as shown below but no setting seems to be helping.
This is a brand new mac (5 weeks old).
Well it looks like there are a couple solutions:
Option 1. Enter this in terminal:
defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false. To disable repeating keys again, enter the same command except change the
defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
seems to have no effect, try a restart. This seems to be necessary in more recent versions of OS X.
