   I have a Gateway m6750. When the problem first started it would repeat 8"s in any writable space you put the cursor on. Later it started beeping repeatedly for a minute or more when you started the computer up. It wasn't beeping a code. I changed the memory removed the hard drive and keyboard with no change. It will even write 8's in the time and date space in the bios when you can get to it. I was wondering if this might be a short in the MB ? Or does anyone have another idea?

IMO it's likely to be a problem with the keyboard (or it's connection).  If those have been ruled out, then there's likely a problem with the motherboard - but I'm not an expert at this..

I'd post over in the Internal Hardware forums if you need more assistance with this.

Good luck!
