    Howdy,

    Is the result the same in Safemode

    How to Start in Safemode

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. Before the windows logo you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
    3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
    5. Do whatever tasks you require and when you are done reboot to boot back into normal mode..

    Try some compressed air on the keyboard to see if anything (dirt, bugs, etc,) is stuck in the keys.
    Turn it over and tap gently to dislodge same.
    Attach a USB keyboard and see if the problem persists.
