    Really need help with laptop please

    Hi, got a HP Compaq Presario (?) 6 days old, has been working fine. Had it on earlier and turned it back on now its come up with a black screen saying something or other about booting it etc so press enter on the Win7 bit and it beeps like mad.
    You get to the user log in screen and the password bit fills up with type, can't delete it or anything....
    Any ideas? Just stick the recovery discs in?
    Thanks

    Typing blank sounds like space bar sticking.

    gawd knows, lol. None of the keys appeared to be sticking, but it has stopped now. So maybe they were? But would that have caused the laptop to go onot the black screen, it asked at one point to choose an operating system to start up?

    sticky keys cause that or a faulty keyboard.

    Ah well I never knew that, thank you. Rep coming your way!
    The keyboard seems ok now so will just keep an eye on it.
    Thanks again

    :thinking:Coffee or coke spillage into the key board has this effect as well
    Any one else used it?
