From some quick googling, that's something to do with either your keyboard or memory.

Solutions I found was setting your BIOS to failsafe defaults, or trying a PS2 keyboard rather than a USB one

You can also try moving the USB keyboard or mouse to different port(s).

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask marinoz for more information if necessary.
