    Desktop problem
    I'm on a Mac desktop OS X 10.6. These are the things the computer is doing: It makes a noise like a snare drum. I can use the mouse, but can't type anything. Every time I try to type, it just repeats one letter in a long stream. When I'm on the web, it minimizes the page (tiny).

    I would just back everything up, and factory restore it.

    Sounds like liquid met keyboard.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Don't know what that is, but my first thought is to try a different keyboard. Wouldn't that be a good approach?
