Amilo M1420 freezes in boot/resumes by pressing any key

Type: Fujitu-Siemens Amilo M 1420
OS: Windows XP SP2
(Bizar) Problem: My laptop works fine only when I continuously press and hold any key on the keyboard.

If I (re)boot the laptop it always freezes in the “xp startup screen”. When I press any key on the keyboard, hold it, the booting continues… When I lift my finger and release the key I was holding, the booting stops, press down any or same key on the keyboard again and the booting continues, when booting complete, the touchpad and keyboard will not work, when I again press and hold any key I can use the touchpad and type/use the keyboard… to be short my laptop works perfect if I press and hold (doesn’t have to be hard, even when pressed very GENTLY) any key on the keyboard… which makes this a VERY bizar problem.

The motherboard got renewed in warrantee time and ?fixed? the problem for about a month or so after that the same problem occured but outside warrantee time!

From visiting the Fujitsu-Siemens website/forum I know that there is at least one more user of the exact same laptop that has the same problem.

I’m very interested/curious on what you will have to say about this and by all means very much obliged for it.

Thank you.
