Oh no

I have a new PC I built 2 weeks ago.

Today I was using it and it started making some strange beeps, then I found that the Windows sign in field (and some others) was being filled up with lots of characters.

Just like you get if something is sitting on your keyboard.

I rebooted and then got the some thing a few minutes later.

Its going alright now.

Any suggestions ?

Sounds like stuck keys. Try another keyboard

Try the basic's first: If the keyboard is wireless, change the batteries, if its wired try another KB, that can be a sign the keyboard is sending commands somehow.

Thanks
My keyboards are wired.

And I have swapped them.
On the second keyboard it did it on first boot up.

But it has not done it since then, fingers crossed.

But in my experience, once something happens it will happen again.
