SOURCE: Icons on desktop
The icons that flash are probably shortcuts that start with S. The S key is causing both problems most likely. There are screwed labeled with K or a unique icon. All located on the bottom of chassis below keyboard. Remove them and life up the keyboard. Do this while the power is off. Disconnect the ribbon cable from the keyboard and remove it. Power on the laptop and let it boot. Once its to the desktop you can see your result. Then all you need to do is pop out the S key and spray contact cleaner underneath rubber contact sheet. You may have to remove some screws.

You can try lowering your screen resolution. This is done by doing a right click on any clear area of your desktop. On the selection that will appear, do a left click on "Properties". Click on the "Settings" tab, move the slider for "Screen Resolution" towards the left. You have to try different settings till it satisfies your preference.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

you would either format or delete all of the data from this drive if it has an operating system on it you would format it
you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE0 means Pri master
IDE1 means Pri slave
IDE2 means Sec master
IDE3 means Sec slave
or if you are using a USB
insert your usb drive
click start right click on my computer select open you should see your USB drive
right click then select format
another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format
hope this helps you
