If this isn't a joke and I'll presume it isn't. Can you get hold of another keyboard and try it before anything else is suggested.

The s part of your problem sounds like keyboard bounce. Can you borrow another keyboard and see if that works normally?

How did you get the s in 'Rucksack' to display properly?

Your other symptoms - I dunno!

Look can you type silly sally saw a sexy seagull?
Sounds like your entire system may be broken, have you booted into DOS to see if DOS does the same, this may eliminate the fact that Windows is being stressed again.

I am very serious and this is crazy. As you can see my "s" has decided to work for the moment but dont know for how long


Sorry, I can only suggest trying another keyboard.

Just what I said VoG™ but I thought your comment was funnier.
