i just got a model m recently from a garage sale and it looked as if
it had been sitting in a snowbank or something so i bought it for 50
cents. bring it hom eand plug it in and it works execpt for some keys
that repet themselves on there own and the "2" key put out "23" on the
screen. Anyways so it was working and then it started to make my
computer beep. so i left it unpluged for a couple of days just to make
sure its completly dry. so i went to plug it in again today and all it
does is beep. Any sudjestion?

All but the very oldest Model M looking keyboards use the same mylar
overlay you see in the cheapest keyboards. If it got corrosion on the
pads it is probably toast.
You can pop all the keytops off and blow it out with canned air. Just
be careful not to knock the springs off. If you take the space bar
off, be sure you note how the wire bail goes.
