The up arrow key on my computer is always toggled On. Any menu I bring up scrolls rapidly upwards. Clicking on a window cause it to move upwards, etc... This slows down the boot process dramatically, and makes my computer pretty much unusable once it gets going. This behavior happens with or without a keyboard connected to the box. Any ideas?

I left the computer on for awhile... about an hour later it did several beeping sounds, and then the problem was gone! Well, it became so that when I could right click something, it would beep repeatedly, like some other button was stuck, or toggled on. But only about five minutes later, that behavior went away, and the computer returned back to normal. I really don't know what happened, or why it's working now and didn't before.

It might be that the keyboard and mouse drivers are corrupted. If you have or can get a xp installation disk insert it into the drive. Click Start > run. Type sfc /scannow. A blue bar will show up. It's quite a long process and when it ends the bar disappears without any notice. This process should fix corrupted system files.
