I have a Pavilion ze5570us and I keep getting an intermittent
problem where it will start typing sssssss by itself?
Different keyboards did not solve the problem.
Anybody here know what this might be?
Any help would be appreciated!!

You mean different keyboards ie meaning you took off the one from the computer and installed a new one to the pc or that you hooked up an external one like usb. When I am thinking if you didn't try a different actual keyboard on the computer itself the key is getting stuck on the laptop keyboard. Hard to test since I don't know anyway of just diabeling that keyboard. To rule out software I would get a Ubuntu linux live cd and boot from there to see if it is your windows install that is causing the problem. if it don't do it then it is an os problem, start by virus and spyware scan may need to reinstall os. if it still does it may be best to have a professional look at it, because next would be to remove the keyboard from the laptop and try a different one. Don't know if you can use it without a keyboard attached. But with the current keyboard out and still does it it may be a deeper issue like motherboard or something else then.

Thanks for replying!
I plugged in external keyboards in, using the USB port.
This will happen all by itself, just start typing "sssss" without me touching anything. IE: I'll be reading an email
and wherever My cursor is, sss will start typing.
It will work fine for a week or more, then start doing it again??
I guess I'll just reload the os.
