I've Dell Latitude D620 laptop, with BackTrack installed. For the fast few days, it's automatically typing the \ automatically without any break. I tried to break it by Ctrl+C. However it pauses for a few seconds and continues in next line.

I can't even login to system because of the issue.

I believe it can't be a malware problem. Any possible solutions?

Nope, it does not look like malware -- it looks more like a broken keyboard. Try to boot the LiveCD and see what happens.

This idea didn't strike on my mind. I'll update soon! –  Jones Sep 18 '12 at 9:23
    
The problem is with hardware. Many keys failed in live mood too. Thanks the idea. –  Jones Sep 21 '12 at 6:15
