Assuming you have a PC with a keyboard, and not a laptop, try shaking out any debris from the keyboard and make sure the cord is securely connected to the PC.
There are a couple of other things you might try to see if its possibly related to something else:
1. Click Start -> run and type notepad in the textbox and hit enter.
Try typing now - any problems there?
2. Reboot your comp into "safe mode" using an alternative method (apart from the F8 method) and try notepad there:
Click Start -> run and type msconfig in the textbox. Then...Any luck yet?
# The System Configuration Utility appears, On the BOOT.INI tab, Check the "/SAFEBOOT" option, and then click OK and Restart your computer when prompted.
# The computer restarts in Safe mode.
# Perform the troubleshooting steps for which you are using Safe Mode.
When you are finished with troubleshooting in Safe mode, open MSCONFIG again, on the BOOT.INI tab, uncheck "/SAFEBOOT" and click OK to restart your computer
If you are still experiencing problems in both of the tests above, consider reinstalling the drivers for the keyboard (its not all that complicated; we can cover this when the time comes).
Since your computer is new, you should also have your warranty information, receipts, etc. on hand, in case you need to have something repaired/returned by the manufacturer. (Of course if it was a gift from someone else, consider trying all of the steps above before asking for the receipt ;) )

I met something similar on another forum and
maybe barking up a completely wrong tree (sorry very wrong very wrong tree) but
have you by any slim chance got the caps lock key on?

Hi, the logs are below but I -couldnīt use safemode. The first time I ran Superantispyware in safemode the computer shut down part way through the scan and then I tried twice to start in safe mode but it kept shutting down as soon as I clicked to log on to windows. -I restarted in normal mode and there werenīt any problems and the scan ran with the following results.
I should add that when Internet Explorer is opened another browser window opens with an ad in it. It doesnīt happen when I open Firefox which is what Iīm using now. As previously mentioned, the dashes didnīt happen in -Firefox, only IE, but now theyīve started in Firefox too which is why this message has a few dashes where they shouldnīt be.
I also managed to get the system information up and it says manufacturer GBT____ and model GBTUACPI, just incase that makes any difference. -
