When turned on it beeps once. #1 lights up and stays on. When we begin to type it just beeps everytime we hit any key and doesn't move.

This problem is most often caused in typewriter models IBM / Lexmark 30, 35, 3500, 50, 5000, 70, and 7000. Easiest way to solve this is to remove the batteries, make sure you have the typewriter turned off. Re-install the batteries, turn the typewriter on and the problem should be solved.

SOURCE: Types a few characters then stops typing and just beeps...

Perhaps you have the R. margin set at that point. Try resetting it at the R. end.

I have Dell Inspiron 1440 Laptop. I am using it fop almost 2 years. But recently there is a problem when I turn on my laptop. At the start up I hear a continuous beep (beep-beep-beep-beep-.....beep....)...

I would check to make sure that no keys are stuck down, if they are they oveload a buffer in the computer and the beeping will drvie you crazy. Get some compressed air and blow under the keys or you can vacuum them sideways don't do it straight down or you'll **** the keys off :)

My g drive is beeping - I had it on my mac and brought it over to another one to share files and it started beeping and will not load

Sounds like your file system is GPT--Protected drive. You can either backup the information on the drive and reformat it as another partiton type or open it on windows using this program

It worked for me.

HP notepad - continueous beeping sound with equal sign characters

If you are getting a lot of = character along with the beeping, this indicates you have a stuck = key and the beeping sound is the keyboard buffer is swamped with the = character. If you can't unstick this key, then you need to replace the keyboard.

Our verifone omni 3750 credit card terminal started making a beeping sound and would not accept input. Sometimes you can unplug it and then it will work fine or you can press many different keys at the...

Depending on the type of business you are, the terminal can get pretty dirty on the inside and not look it on the outside. I had a florist contact me about similar issues with his terminal and after a good cleaning of the contact points under the pin pad the Omni worked fine.
Good luck
