R4000 keyboard problem

This started as a sporadic problem, now is a nightmare. All of the sudden, programs start to pop-up. Always the same (media player, system info, compaq support). If you're in a word processing program (even notepad), characters start to be written by themselves, repeatedly. The work-around have been many, since it has gotten worse. The first one was just press all keys on the keyboard. Then tried an external USB keyboard which worked for some time, then the problem started again. I even physically disconnected the laptop's keyboard & mouse to use only the external usb keyboard/mouse combo. Still the problem shows-up. Any help greatly appreciated

I have a compaq presario r4000 will not boot up correctly

When you start it up, go to the BIOS option and select "peripheral" settings. I don't know which column its under but you want to turn the network adapter off. If that makes your Operating System come up working (And you may have to come up in SAFE mode the first time), then you can always go back and reset the BIOS to recognize the network adapter, or install a different one.

There is no driver from Compaq because it just uses a standard driver from the operating system.

Try removing the keyboard from the device manager.

Then restarting the computer.

Let me know what happens.
