Try another keyboard. Maybe one or more of the keys is sticking. Other possibility is a bad stick of ram. Try only one at a time in dimm slot one. You can reset the bios by poping the motherboard battery out of the holder for one minute with the power supply unplugged, then reinstall with the system off.

Kind of sounds like a halt state on keyboard error. You could try another keyboard or maybe the bios will allow you to turn off the error checking for the keyboard.

Last suggestion is to try changing the board battery. The cr2032 lithium is available for $2-3, sometimes at target or walmart or frys, which has a 4 pack for around $5. These are also called "button batteries".

What motherboard and bios version do you have? Get me this info and I or someone else can search for this issue. You shouldn't be the only one having this issue and possible others have found a work around.
