W7 Keyboard automatically types open brackets

September 28, 2010 at 11:10:23
Specs: Windows 2007
No matter what I open it will automatically begin typing this symbol [[[[[[[[[[. I have tried changing keyboard, same thing. What could it be, a virus?

OK, I have switched users on the computer and it went to the blue screen. I shut it down and now it gets part way thru the reboot and stops and lets out a sound like a key is being held?

Sounds to me like the keyboard (either USB or PS/2) port may have gone bad, though unlikely, it is possible.
More likely, you've been infected with some sort of data-eating virus that likes to mess with your keyboard. Try to backup your data if you haven't already, or if you can at all... DO NOT connect to the internet until you're all backed up unless absolutely necessary - and by do not connect, I actually mean UNPLUG the ethernet cable so there is no way you can be infected with more viruses. Try to boot to external HDD, and copy old data over if you can.

hope this helps, sorry if it's unclear I don't have much time and i'm still getting used to this new keyboard LOL.
