3) Unplug all USB devices.
4) Update Keyboard driver,

If the keyboard keep on typing [ I think you may have a stuck key on the keyboard. Try remove the keyborad and plug in a usb keyboard.

Well, if you removed the laptop keyboard and use a usb keyboard and the [ is still showing up, I think it isn't a hardware problem. But still, try remove the battery and hold the on button for 30 second and see if it resets.

Ok, good that you sort it out. I was about to suggest the software side of the fix, but you beat me to it.
