Does it work properly in safe mode?
What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

What do you mean you can't get into safe mode but it's doing it there? I realize it's hard to type, but try to give complete details.

Do you have access to another keyboard? If you do try it and see what happens. What you described is a sign that the keyboard could be bad and needs to be replaced.

You're saying it does the same thing at boot? Now THAT's odd. Yeah, try a different keyboard.

Sorry for the really poor writing. But you can imagine when you press the key A and T comes up, and T brings A up why i gave up writing long sentences. Especially when i did not know what backspace was set at. This also worried me when in the BIO's i could not find SM key.

I did not suspect a broken keyboard because for one it is fairly new, Two because it worked a few hours before i had gone out, and also showed no signs of on the way out.

But lets just a certain female admitted she washed the keyboard down with water after i had gone out. New keyboard has resolved the issue.

Oh and thanks Andrew for finding a new hate in life. on screen keyboard

Thanks people.
