Windows 7: Computer keeps typing LOTS of zero's!

Computer keeps typing LOTS of zero's!

Hi there everyone, I need immediate help!
For a while now I have been having this bug where my computer just keeps constantly typing zero's like this "000000000000000000000000000000000000000" without me doing anything.

A few points I should mention

-I have unplugged the keyboard and the problem still persists

2.The issue normally starts after watching a movie, a long video or after playing a game.

3.My antivirus software couldn't find anything.

4.It is always fixed with a good ol' restart but it is REALLY annoying to do this.

Please if you know what the problem is or if you have any ideas on how to fix it PLEASE post a reply! Thanks in advance for everybody's help.

Sounds almost like the memory modules are storing data while they're being stressed buffering the movie, video, etc. So I think I'd remove the module(s) and try reseating. If you have two modules or more, install just one and run the computer for a while to see if everything works. Then try the next module. Sometimes you can determine if one is bad. If all modules seem to work individually, reinstall all of them and run a stress test like Memtest86+.

You can also check CPU, mobo etc with another tool called Prime95.

Windows 7 also has a built in memory diagnostic tool. Let's start with that.

Memory Diagnostics Tool

If it detects any problems, or if you still want to run Memtest86+, you'd have to download an ISO file and save it to a convenient location like your desktop. (This is just a special kind of file that contains the Memtest86+ info as well as special instructions for your computer.) You'd need either a blank USB flash drive, or a CD, or a DVD to create the actual media to run the test. This tutorial explains how:

Do a cold boot with your keyboard unplugged. Then plug the keyboard back in and see what happens.
