Okay, here's my story...

My laptop was working perfectly fine yesterday afternoon. I left to go run some errands. I get back to my laptop, open IE, click the address bar, and it starts spamming W's uncontrollably. I exit and start IE again, go to the address bar, and now it's spamming 3's.

I reboot the computer, get to the log in screen, and attempt to enter my password but am unable to because it is still spamming. A few hours later after leaving the laptop off, I start it up again to now be trapped in the Windows Boot Manager and unable to click any options.

My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv2715nr. I run Windows Vista

I'm guessing I need a new keyboard but I do not understand how this problem randomly occured. I'd really appreciate any solutions to my problem(s) with my laptop. Thanks!!!!

Again, I am unable to leave Windows Boot Manager because my keyboard is not responding.

(Edit) I read a couple similar posts, tried hitting F8 and F10 but it doesn't seem to work. Still goes to Windows Boot Manager

Unplug power cable and remove battery for a few minutes, then reattach them and start up.
