Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
MY ASUS Eee2G Surf notebook will boot up but the keyboard has gon crazy! all it will type out ar aaaaa's
You could try reseating the keyboard - unclip the section above the keyboard - remove any screws and lift the keyboard - there is a ribbon going to a connector on the motherboard - remove and reconnect this and try the keyboard.
If this does not rectify it is likely that the keyboard has somehow broken - you can buy a replacement and fit it in the same manner.

I just tried your method and it worked for my eee 701 keyboard. First I removed the battery and made sure the AC wasn't plugged in.
Previously it had gone completely batty and kept throwing up menu item windows as if I was hitting alt key with each regular letter I typed. I did notice that my keyboard tray is warped around where the ribbon folds and connects to the mb. the result is that the alt key and space bar push upward more than the others, but they press fine. I haven't dropped it at all, but I had suspected that condensation from a frosty winter damaged it. :)

One thing to check before thinking about replacing the keyboard is to check for stuck keys.
You should be able to feel one that is stuck down or feels dead or heavy compared to the rest. That as a wild guess be the A key ;-] It can also be one of the surrounding keys so check those too but A is a good one to start with. If you haven't spilled anything on it then it can just be from a bit of wear and typing and hitting it at a off angle. If you spilled something then you most likely wasn't be able to fix it and need to replace the keyboard.
To unstick it try this first. Give the laptop a wrap with your knuckles on the bottom of the laptop about under where the key is. You want to be careful so you are going to do this no harder than what you do to knock on a door. It might take a few of these and the key should just pop up. You can also very carefully pry the key up. You have to be very careful not to pry too hard as it is easy to break the key mechanism on some keyboards. As well if you have to resort to prying it up generally that means the key was damaged or stuck bad enough that it will tend to stick on you again and you will have the problem again sooner or later.
