To both mmcltd & pajarodelaluz, reboot your computer with the original Install disk by holding down the C key on startup. Once the Apple symbol is showing on the screen you can release the C key. Once the Mac is going properly, go to File > Disk Utilities. Verify hard disk and Repair if necessary.
If repair is successful, or if no problems are found, restart your computer as usual (no C key), and then Repair Permissions, preferably using OnyX Titanium Software
Hopefully one or both of those operations will cure the keyboard input problem.
To mmcltd - if SurfWax's suggestion has not worked, do try another keyboard, even a cheap generic PC model to see if the problem is replicated.
Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.
I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
