First welcome to the discussions area.
There are a few things to try before erasing the HD. That would be my last step.
I would try trashing the keyboard preferences. Open the HD go into the system folder, then to the library, then to preference panes. There you will find the prefs for the keyboard. Drag to trash and then see if that helps. The computer will generate new prefs.
Next I would try to borrow a keyboard and see if the problem occurs. It could be a short in the keyboard or a broken wire if it isn't an optical keyboard.
My feeling is that it is related to the keyboard and not the HD.....JimI-Mac G-5, G-3 Slot, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 20gig HD, 320ram,120 kangaroo ext, zip 650

I've been out of town, but I'm happy (kinda) to say that my troubles seem to have gone away now that I'm typing away on my tiny little iMac keyboard. haha! I knew I kept that old Bondi Blue for a reason!
Thanks, again!1 GHz PowerPC G4 eMac, Mac OS X (10.3.x)
