    Hi all,

    Well not sure if this is the right area for this but not really sure what the problem is.

    When I boot my PC during the bootup dos stage I hear my PC making noises, it still boots up Windows 7 ok but as soon as I open something I get continious R type accross my screen, If I hit the caps lock it changes from R to r.

    Thought it was my keyboard having the R locked down so tried to fix it, no luck. Changed keyboards with my spare one no luck. Disconnect all keyboards no luck.

    So where is this R coming from, its impossible to us my PC at the moment as soon as you click somewhere (word, exel, Google etc) an R/r appears.

    Any ideas where to start?

    Hiya,if you need to use a keyboard to try and sort this use the on- screen keyboard,look in device manager any yellow ! or red Xs in there,try updating drivers for keyboard,or uninstall from here,reboot letting your machine reinstall automatically,any change?

    PS2 keyboard, or USB?

    If PS2, then I'd be wondering about a bad keyboard controller on the motherboard.

    In any case, I'd be trying to remove and reinstall any and all keyboard drivers present in the system.

    Thanks for the reply.

    First its a USB logitech keyboard. Will uninstall all drivers and see what happens, but on bootup I can hear the beeps as if something is pushing down a key while booting up but have check and there is nothing, so not sure what removing drivers will do.

    I have already tried disconnecting the keyboard, booting the PC without a keyboard and but no help, as soon as I click on a field that allows input it starts printing R.

    If this is happening during boot up before windows is booted as well, then it is most likely a hardware problem. If it is doing it with other keyboards connected, I would suspect a motherboard problem. Perhaps if you posted your system specs, Make and Model System if Big box (Dell, HP/Compaq, Acer, etc....) or same if custom or home built for Motherboard, Processor, Power Supply, etc....

    Does the system have a PS2 keyboard jack?
