strange keyboard behavior

This system is running CentOS 5.3, 32 bit address mode. I'm having trouble with my laptop keyboards, both the "native" keyboard and the usb keyboard. During boot, prior to starting x, both appear to be working correctly. Once I start x, the keyboard is practically non functional. Input is eventually received by holding down the keys til they become typematic. At this point in time all I can see are the keys I've pressed (i.e., just the "normal" results of the typematic action), not the "cmds" I have typed though.

This is the pkg that is installed:
Build ID: xorg-x11-server 1.1.1-48.52.el5 

The Xorg.0.log file says this about the server:
X Window System Version 7.1.1

This configuration has worked in the past but now does not. I don't think I did anything but something has changed and I'm not sure how to proceed.

Any/all tips/hints/suggestions/clues would be GREATLY appreciated.
