1-key seems to be pressed

I just installed CentOS 5.2.i386, and -at first sight- almost everything is alright. There only is one itty bitty small detail, which I think is not right: in certain application, it seems I am holding down the 1-key. Not all the time, but just sometimes! Even when plugging out the mouse and the keyboard connectors - it keeps writing 111111111111111 and so on. Suddenly it stops, and I can use the system as I want.

At this moment, I am having a workaround: waiting until it is alright.

If somebody has an idea how to get working it normally, I'd be glad.

Well, it seems to be, because Scroll Lock is on. I use Scroll Lock to switch keyboard, video and mouse by use of a KVM-switch, to my Windows machine.
Unlike in Windows, in (my setup of) Linux, it is not possible to see if Scroll Lock is on or not.
