Check your keyboard speed settings in the control panel.

Boot into safe mode, and see if the problem happens there too.

You said it works up until the welcome screen. There's not really any typing involved before that. So what makes you think it works before windows loads?

because after the problem...when i press the key it starts making a tuk tuk sound for each press and it requires a long press for each key to respond or appear..i meant it works alright till the welcome screen as i found the key responded normal and without sound when i pressed f8 for entering safe mode and the up and down arrow keys were behaving very normal when i was selecting the safe mode...so some ghost is sitting inside my system...i know it is some software or error and not hardware as the external wireless and usb keyboard too gives the same problem when connected..if some god like u give me a solution..i will be so thankfull..i thankyou so much any way for keeping in touch to find the error...plz help me....

start-->control panel-->system-->hardware tab-->device manager-->expand keyboards-->left click on your keyboard, then right click on it, and uninstall it-->restart-->it will reinstall on restart.

The problem is because the North Bridge on the motherboard gets heat soaked as it does not make good contact with the aluminium plate under the keyboard which acts like a cooler. After I have bent the plate to secure contact and added a new thermal paste the problem was solved.
