Most if not all versions of Windows have a control to set the repeat rate.
But the other aspects of your post make me think some key logger has infected this PC. I'd start with a scan with Grif's help then post back with machine details.

Hi, so I bought a new keyboard, current one was damaged by accident. it's like a 5 years old keyboard, so is my pc.
Anyway, bought new keyboard recently, and I've noticed some problems with it, i thought it was the issues came from the keyboard so i replaced it but i still faced same problems with the newer one aswell.
The problems are the followings :
- holding one key doesn't type repeatedly, it's not as fast as it should be
- holding shift to type in caps lock result in about half the letters only in caps, so holding keys isn't consistent, i tried it with alt+tab too and windows keep switching before i can select one
- in video games you would normally hold w key for running/walking, but my character keeps walking and stopping, basically like i said earlier, keys aren't consistent
- the "i" and "k" keys aren't working well, if i type "i" sometimes it doesn't show up, sometimes i get two "i"s.
I have tried this keyboard on an old windows xp laptop and everything worked smooth, so the problem is in my pc and not keyboard.
I did not have any of these problems with the old keyboard, I'm currently using windows 7 and I've done a fresh install hoping it would solve the issue but it didn't, I also tried plugging the keyboard on other usb ports but the issue is there in every port.
I'm doubting it's either a driver problem or usb incompatibility? I don't know, it's somehow weird because my keyboard worked on a old laptop perfectly but not on my pc.
Please help me, and thanks for reading
