Sounds like a stuck key, you'll have to tap each key with the laptop off power until you can guess which may be sticking. A can of air used on the keys will also help to dislodge anything that may be helping a key stay half pressed.

When you start up and you get this series of tones anyway after, press the Escape key a few times and see if that doesn't resolve this issue.

Some keyboards need to be replaced if a stuck key is due to a mechanical malfunction. In this case, you will want a qualified technician to do this work for you, and be certain they have experience in laptop assembly. Don't rely on a neighbor or friend who wants to try for you. A good expensive piece of equipment can be rendered useless.

    Your laptop has an exhaust vent, usually in the right rear corner, and there should be a light warm breeze coming from this when you turn the laptop on. Can you find the exhaust area and then feel any breeze?

    I'm wondering if the continuous beeping is not an error beep referencing a cooling fan failure.

    Let me know, on this first and then I can search for the error beep codes for your laptop. I hesitate only because your laptop is a legacy model from before HP bought up Compaq.

    If you can replace a keyboard, I can help you get to the bottom of this as it may mean opening up the laptop again and since you've done this once before you know enough to stay out of trouble inside a laptop's guts.

I have a Compaq Cq60-104TU laptop with 2GB RAM and a 250GB hard disk. Windows XP service pack 3 is installed in it. Off late, whenever I turn on the laptop, I get this loud constant beeps. There are around...


Computers beeps are caused by the power supply, system board, graphics/video card or keyboard.
Reboot your system with out the keyboard if it no longer beeps your problem is a couple of stuck keys on the keyboard.
If the beeping continues remove your graphics card and reboot your system.
If your pc still beeps the it is either your power supply or the system board.

Compaq presario sr2109 - beeping sound/wont turn on


Actually if you hear this intermittent sound every two seconds you must check out the RAM of you laptop. If you are a bit technical you can take out the ram cleans its contact with a fibre pencil. Re put it back and restart your pc, if it continues to beep just buy another brand new strip of ram.

If this solution is ok please give weight to my solution, thanks alot

Computer beeps when first turning on


If your computer is still under warranty, the company should replace them. If not, you can buy them really cheap.

Or you could just return the computer. This is what I would do, because it might not be the mouse/keyboard that is causing this. It could be that you just have a bad motherboard.
