I have not been able to find anything about this problem anywhere, so hopefully someone here knows something about it. It all started a few weeks ago when I was pressing some garlic and a little bit of water landed on the keyboard. I didn't notice until much later. Immediately after, everything went haywire. The control shift was wxza, 't' was lserds. I don't remember exactly but I was afraid that I would never be able to write a coherent sentence ever again. It wasn't much water, and by morning everything worked except for the 'z' key which still doesn't work. It gets typed after 'x' sometimes, but the actual key is dead.
About this same time, I found out about torrent files. And so, torrents so far have turned out to not be the cleanest possible files. So about a week ago, I do not know if this is related to the water or the torrents, but when I get to the blue Windows Log-in screen that pops up when the computer is started or after the screen saver has been on, now whatever I press, a mousepad click, the space bar, backspace, a letter, now matter what prompts a series of mystery circles to materialixxzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I might as well leave that, as it is an example. I type 'x' to get a 'z' for the word above, and that many typed behind the x.
Anways, the bubbles that fill themselves in make it very hard to log in, and sometimes I have to restart the computer several times before it will work. Does anyone have any clue what sort of problem I have is? A proposed solution? Where I should be looking/looking at? Thank you
