Keeps beeping at boot

beeping in some computer is a factory installed indicator for a malfunctioning part on your computer. One possible issue on your laptop is a stuck key on one of your keyboard keys. Have your keyboard keys checked. If the issue is in relation with the universal charger, the laptop may not be recognizing it at first boot due to incompatibility with your laptop or the charger itself is damaged. Have them checked by a local technician to avoid further damage.

Cd rom malfunction

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) F2? and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

My keyboard is malfunctioning. It repeatedly types "b" continuously. I can't stop it unless i press SPACE... any help? I have an Ideapad S10-2.

Welcome to Fixya

Sound like the key is sticking. Try to login in to safe mode by pressing F8 when you boot up the computer. If you experience that same problem in windows safe mode then its gonna be a keyboard problem. You may call Lenov support at 18774536686 then option 2 for repair if th computer is still in warranty.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Observe the condition to ascertain condition. For example, connect the keyboard to computer to ascertain response. usually with peripheral devices, connections to computer should display results of compartibility else mesages is malfunction missing media recogniseable. In the situation that the keyboard is malfunctioning as missing media is indicationof incompartible to computer. For example, wireless keyboards require adaptors devices attached to computer to function where the computer has to be wireless compartible. In the situation where a cables wired keyboard were attached to wireless computer would be missing the adaptor. Where a wireless keyboard were attached to a computer that least wireless with an adaptors would least produce any results. Circumpectively, the computer with wireless capabilities requires a wireless adaptor that recognies a wireless built keyboard.

Keyboard malfunctioning

Are you saying it will stay on even if you press NumLock to turn it off? That's weird. But on most computers NumLock automatically comes on can change this in the computers BIOS. Try pressing F1 as your computer is booting up to change this option.

check out this will solve your problem.
