I have an A665 Series laptop, and i like it a lot -- but I can't type quickly on it for 2 reasons: I have to press down so incredibly hard that it slows me down, and the space bar doesn't work 75% of the time because it requires pounding on it much harder that anyone should have to! So I spend a lot of time going back andinserting the space that should have been there but didn't happen...
Suggestions for how to fix this problem?

Sounds like it might need a new keyboard, or it is one of the long stroke keyboards found on some laptops. On those the button has to travel just a bit farther to make contact and they take more time to master.

Goto a brick and morter store and compare the a665 model to one with a backlight and yours and see if it's your KB that's the issue. The backlit one seems to be of an entirely different design and, at least for me, a backlit KB will supposedly work in my A665.
Beware of the space key on the A665 normal KB. See my recent post in the keyboard section "a665 series keyboards" http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Keyboards-Touchpads/A
