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.

Good Day Gmariamd!

A beep codes has different meaning. Depending on the number of beeps and the series of short or long beeps.

But most frequently, a beeps were heard when a video card and or memory card is loosened. You may need to remove it from the motherboard and reseat them properly on the slot of the motherboard. Just remember when you do it computer must be off.

Monitor won't come on..just blinks..


a common way to solve this is to put the BIOS into its defaults...
i.e, loading the BIOS with default settings..

to do this you need to open the case of your CPU then, on the motherboard there is a small battery called CMOS battery...
take it out and after a minute or so put it back...

in this one minute, the BIOS will get reset to its default settings...

you should now be able to work........

If this sol. helps please give a vote....

I have a compaq presario 2500, the system comes up but when I try to type (like in a word doc) nothing happens, just a click sound

I feel that you may have an infection such as a trojan, virus or key-logger.
If you do not have a current anti-virus program on your PC, the likelihood is greater.
Does your keyboard work BEFORE you start Windows? If you can hit the F2 key or the DEL key to get into the bios, then it works and is not defective.
You can download a free infection scanner at This will tell you if you are infected.
