Question about Computers & Internet
The easiest thing to check is not the most likely, but because it is easy to do, lets swap out the keyboard first, make sure all the pins are intact if you're using a PS2 keyboard, and move the keyboard to another port if it's USB. See if that fixes the issue.
More likely, I believe your going to find this is a virus or a key-logger that has been crippled or made active by the system. But the easy way to tell is to take Windows out of the picture. Boot to the Windows install Cd and tell it you want to run the recovery console. If you can type at a command prompt without issue then it is something in your system.
It is unlikely you will, but if you have the same problem on the command line with a new keyboard, then the issue is the BIOS. You'll have to update it, restore it to default, or otherwise possibly replace the board.
