Keyboard typing automatically

This can be a few things.
1. Stuck keys, some keyboard can get dust, food, hair in them which cause the keys to stick. If you have a vacuum cleaner you can gently vacuum the keyboard to remove some of these obstructions.

2. bad keyboard, if after cleaning the keyboard the problem continues you may have a bad keyboard and it may need replaced.
If it is a desktop you can pick them up pretty cheap at almost any store that sells computer parts. If it is a laptop the keyboard can be replaced as well, but may need to be done by a computer repair shop or other professional.

3. virus, back in the 80s-90s viruses that allowed another person to take control over your computer where very common. Now days these types of viruses still exist but are not as common. You may need to update and run an anti-virus program or have your computer looked at by a computer repair shop. However, I would not do this until the first two solutions have been tried.

Further help can be provided if you let us know if full sentences are being typed, or just random letters.

My laptop screen remains blank when i turn it on but you can tell that it is running....because the lights on the keyboard is do i get my laptop to work??? This happened before and they told me it...

If you still get the loading sound from your operating system, but can't see anything on your screen, try shining a flashlight on it. If you can faintly see images on the screen of your computers background, then it means that the backlight in the LCD screen has burnt. The backlight is usually an array of thin fluorescent bulbs, and not very easy to replace.
If that isn't the case, and you feel that it could be the RAM, simply remove the chip, note the type of RAM AND the frequency (ex DDR400, 333mhz) and purchase a replacement stick of the same type and speed. You could even make it an upgrade, and get a larger stick if you'd like, (ex. 512MB replaced by 1GB stick)

Have an hp a305w pavillion powers up but nothing on the screen, tried f10 an nothing happened. Its as if the monitor isn't receiving a signal.

Disconnect all cables, remove all cards and memory. Reinstall one stick of ram, power cord, video cable and keyboard. If that works reinstall other components one at a time. I found a hp a1600n at the dump. Brought it home, had same problem, tried this. A memory stick was loose. Resetting it fixed it. I am typing on it now. You might try the memory first. A chip could have gone bad.Are you using the board video or a video card?

You can unplug and replug your keyboard and see if it will fix the problem. If it didnt fix the problem , i would advice you to try another keyboard. I had the same problem few months ago and everything works fine after i replace my keyboard.

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.

One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.

My laptop keyboard is typing numbers for some reason... I have had to attach a normal keyboard just so I can still type... the drivers are saying that the keyboard is fine, however it is still typing...

this seems to be a more physical problem than a driver problem, have you removed the keyboard before? it may be that the wire which connects the keyboard to the laptop has come lose or hasnt been connected properly.

also as a second suggestion it may be that something has found its way under the keys causing them to stick? very bizzar but it does happen :)

what is the connection type of your keyboard? is it PS/2 or USB?

well, if your keyboard is a PS/2 type, there might be a problem with the PS/2 keyboard port, because you've said that it works well with your other PC.

if your using a USB type of keyboard, well try to check if your SYSTEM BIOS supports USB Keyboards. because there are some PC doesnt supports USB keyboard on its BIOS. if it supports, well, enable the USB Devices on your BIOS settings to ON.
