    When I start my Toshiba satellite laptop, this message appears in black and white and nothing will load unless I hit the backspace key or have a CD in the drive from the time it was previously "on." What is causing this: <windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe? Also, I spilled Diet Coke (so, no sugar) on my keypad. Although I salvaged it by flipping it over and turning it off, my Ctrl (control) key seems to stick-- not physically, but a short somewhere. I adjusted my sticky/filter keys settings so that my computer ignores repeated key strokes so I can type b/c before it wouldn't even let me type. Everything else functions perfectly fine-- would a new keypad fix my problem since the motherboard itself appears to be fine? I realize these are complicated questions to answer without looking at it, but please help me! This is a fairly new and expensive birthday/Christmas-for-the-next-five-years kinda present and I'm an idiot!!
