I've just changed keyboards each time.

1997: Compaq 101-key keyboard would stop sending certain letters:
- bought Mouse Systems PS/2 ergo keyboard (with the 6 on the right, where  
it should be!).

2003: Mouse Systems ergo keyboard was pretty dirty and spacebar wasn't  
working so well:
- bought a Sun PS/2 keyboard (320-1256-01).

2006: Got sick of the Sun keyboard not registering multiple keys pressed  
down in Quake, Doom 3, etc.
       (and the left Ctrl key would sometimes bind and not press down,  
which is bad since it's my "Fire" button):
- bought a Saitek Eclipse USB keyboard.
