Welcome to Fixya

Sound like the key is sticking. Try to login in to safe mode by pressing F8 when you boot up the computer. If you experience that same problem in windows safe mode then its gonna be a keyboard problem. You may call Lenov support at 18774536686 then option 2 for repair if th computer is still in warranty.

Thank you for using Fixya!

There could be two issue with your machine.
1) A sticky keyboard key which sends a stream of input to the system. It results in the in the above problem. Try to tap all the keys and make sure they are not stuck and you get the bounce when you press the individual key. Also check the space bar.
2) It could also be due to a faulty keyboard. In this case you would have to change the entire keyboard. If you can do the job of removing the keyboard get the Service manual of your laptop from the Dell site. Alternatively you will have to get to some shop or professional to do the job.

If it is still under warranty just call Dell and have them send a replacement keyboard. If not, either try cleaning her laptop keyboard or just pick up a new one off some place like ebay for about $10.00 with free shipping.

Repeat keys and back space has pause when typing

- Go to Control Panel -> Keyboard - We have options where we can configure the repeat delay and repeat rate - To configure sounds you can go to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Sounds Tab - You can configure sounds related to Windows Operations here P.S. Although the settings I have specified here are meant for Win XP (when control Panel is in Classic View), they would remain almost the same for all Windows OS.
