strange keyboard problem

ok this has me stumped. I've been using a friend's Asus laptop (don't
know the model), running windows xp (completely updated)... and
yesterday, the keyboard stopped working. kind of. while the bios is
loading it works fine, and under a user that never gets used it works
fine. however, when the main user is active, whenever a key is pressed,
a strange beepy clicky noise is made, similar to when windows locks up
and doesn't accept any keyboard input... BUT if the key is held for a
second or two (I beleive its the time it takes for the key to repeat
itself), the value correctly appears. the trick doesn't work when the
key is tapped twice. Everything else on the computer works fine. I've
since installed spybot and adaware, and made sure my norton definitions
are up to date, and have run all three numerous times... I've
uninstalled and reinstalled the keyboard drivers, to no avail. Any help
or direction at all is immensly appreciated.

Thanks

Jamie
