When I start my laptop after the Press F2 to enter Setup screen it beeps without showing anything. After shutting it and restarting 3-4 times Windows starts and displays ++++++++++++ in all text boxes. I scanned with anti-virus but nothing was found. What could be the cause?
 
I'd lightly tap all the keys, and, especially the "+/=" key, just to make sure no keys are stuck...

Can you actually enter the setup normally, and manipulate the menus, examine/make changes to date, boot device priority, etc..?

Was the laptop's OS drive encrypted?

How did you scan with an AV? (Are you saying you can boot to Windows desktop and operate normally?)

Once the system boots it works normally. But whenever a text box appears it diplays ++++++++++++++++ in it. I then have to delete it and start typing.

I never did any such thing.

After shutting it and restarting 3-4 times Windows does start and displays ++++++++++++ in all text boxes. At this time I scanned with AV.
