    I think my wife's Vaio is finally taking a crap. I realize the stuck key error denotes precisely that, but the key number keeps changing when I hit f8 on the boot, and no the unit will not fully boot up. I am getting ready to buy my wife a new notebook, but the problem is she was trying to log on to back up her quickbooks when the stuck key error hit. all I need to do is get the thing to boot up, so my wife can back up her program, and then the hard drive is going to be wiped. I was thinking I might be able to disable the keyboard on the bios, and then hook up an external board/usb board, but there is not option in the bios to disable the keyboard. any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try just plugging in an external keyboard--ps/2 would probably be recognized most quickly..and see if you can boot.
