Strange keyboard behavior, long delay

Hello, I've installed FreeBSD on my netbook Lenovo S10-3 and I've got very strange problem.

I'm using Slim started during boot. When Slim appears and I want to type my login, for example `test`, I have to push about 3-5 times first letter, to start typing. It also looks like this without slim, when I want to log in as root on TTY. I have to type rrrrroot to make system recognize that I want to login as root.. I don't know what it can be. After that - everything is OK and I can type whatever I want in normal way. It behaves like that just on first typing - it looks like it has to recognize keyboard after first key push and after it you can use it.. Also - I've noticed that when I open nano editor or other editor on some of TTYs, and I close it, it has too long delay. For example I open xorg.conf in nano, change something, push control + x, confirm that I want to save it, push Enter and nothing happens, I'm still able to see nano.. After that I have to push Enter also about 2-more times to get back into TTY..

What should I do? What can be problem? Very weird, isn't it?
Thanks for replies, have a nice day.

I've seen this a handful of times. It was always a BIOS setting, or a dodgy BIOS...

Sorry to not be more specific.

Hm, is it really because of BIOS? Because, you know, Linux and Windows on that netbook hadn't any problem :\ Even OpenBSD or compilled Gentoo..

I hate when people say. It's the keyboard's problem when it works on other operating system.

randomdude: I have a problem with my keyboard outputting weird letter.
freebsdfanboy: It's the keyboards problem or your computer's problem
randomdude: But it works fine on windows, all the linux distros i've tried, even my hackintosh.
freebsdfanboy: Still your problem. FreeBSD is GodOs it has no issues whatsoever. if something doesn't work it's simply your problem.

I am writing this because i have even seen sirdice say "Either the keyboard is broken or there is something weird going on your pc".

This deserves no answer, as hate itself.

Maybe you should simply try another keyboard. Then, go through each procedure to deduce the issue to as few as possible.
