Scancode Error

Hi guys,
I just installed Debian on my machine. I am using a MS wireless keyboard and mouse. I'm not interested in the "fancy" buttons (I can't stand those things).

My issue is I'm getting an error at random times (I'm sure if I timed it its at a particular frequency) at the console. The error is:

keyboard: unknown scancode e0 01
I can hit ANY key and will get a similar error to the one above. Enter, any letter key, any number. I can type for a few seconds, then the error comes up. Its REALLY annoying. The odd thing is this never happened during the installation process.

I've read about these errors, but usually they're in log files...not popping up constantly on the screen. I'd be happy if I can get them to log to a file and not my screen

The keyboard and mouse are USB, but I use the USB to PS/2 adapter for the mouse.

Any help would be really appreciated.
