Your keyboard is likely defective. If you wish to troubleshoot further, you can try the following :

1) Enter the BIOS, restore the default settings, then Save & Exit.

2) UNinstall the keyboard driver and reboot, allowing Windows to install it's Plug-n-Play keyboard driver.

3) Boot into a Linux "LiveCD" distribution and see if the keyboard issue persists. If so, it's likely a hardware problem, rather than a Windows software issue.

If these tests fail to provide a resolution, you should consider keyboard replacement.

sorry to hear about the problem

I've used easyBCD to repair a windows boot manager, you may have to download it in another working machine, then burn it as bootable cd (using nero or similar image burning software), pop it in and when you start your computer make sure you have your cd/dvd drive unit as the first boot option so you go right into the cd ,

try the following instructions here to see if they may help, post back if you have further questions

You may need to re-install the operating system all over again as you had tried to restore your computer using Restore Disc but failed. In these cases, you will have to try to wipe all your data and install OS once again.

Windows boot manager


Hit F8 a few times while your computer starts to boot, a boot selection screen should come up. Try selecting "Last Known Good Configuration" and see if you can boot up without running the repair install.
