I am having a problem with the game's cheat console. Whenever I press tildo (~) to bring down the console, it (either immediately or shortly after) brings up a list of keyboard commands and then reloads the game from the first turn. This obviously makes using the console impossible and useless. The cheats work, it just doesn't behoove me to use them because the game restarts anyway.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening or how I can disable it?

read around, this is posted elsewhere but whatever.

push the ' key.

(Two Keys to the right of L)

This should bring up the "true" console

Nope, it takes several taps of they (') key to even bring up the console, and it then loads a game. Same result.

I have tried to reset the keyboard functions and that simply leaves me without the debug console. The cheats all work just fine for me, but everytime I press ~ the game will either A: quicksave the game if no save is present or B: load any autosave or quicksave. Basically what happens is that I have to keep deleting autosaves and quicksaves as the game saves them to avoid it loading the old saved game and me losing my work. It also brings up this scroll called "Medieval 2 Total War Keyboard Setup" for a split second. I honestly think it's the developers trying to screw with the American users. Very aggrevating.

I had the same problem. The issue was my wireless keyboard and mouse. Turns out if you have a microsoft wireless set up you've gotta get the latest updates. If you've got something else, you might not be able to fix it (from what i read on the official forum). In that case, you'd have to go back to a wired board. Can't find the post I read, but if i find it ill post it here. Hope this helps.
