    Hello,

    Can you log into windows or are you getting beeping sounds upon booting the computer? If you can get into windows please Right Click on My Computer and click on Manage. Then click the + next to event viewer and go through the System folder to see if you have any Red X errors if you do could you please tell me what the source is. If you can not get into Windows count the beeps as if it was Morris Code and add it here like (beep beep beep - - - beep) Dashes represent seconds between next beep.

    Thanks,
    ArmyMason

You won't like my "Final Solution". But try this first, it worked for me.
I had the exact same problem. I thought it was due to a Windows update.
I tried a LOT of the offered registry changes and such with no luck at all.
However, I was able to solve the problem by restoring the system to about 30 days previous.
No guarantees but, as I said, I had the exact same problem and spent about a week looking for a solution.
If that doesn't work, my "Final Solution" would be to mention an old saying I was given a long time ago by a wise old Fishing Boat Captain.
"The Lazy Man Works The Hardest". It means sometimes it it easier to just reload Windows than fight a long and tiresome battle. And THEN have to reload Windows anyway! :>)

What is wrong when my compaq v2000 beeps 2 times loud when I turn it on but no boot


Beep codes are unique to each brand of computer:
Compaq v2000
1 short with 1 long beep = bad bios. Must reload bios from disc.
2 short beeps = general bios failure
for more - do a google search for "v2000 Beep Codes" and go to the link for "bioscentral" - all are listed.

    I no longer hear the clicking sound when I click


    Relax, nothing wrong....
    click is simply a user's preference.
    Old old keyboards used to click all by themselves. Now the keyboard uses the onboard speaker to do its clicking.
    Go to "Sounds" in the [Control Panel] and un-mute the speaker.
    I prefer no sound...

    what version of linux are you using? If it's one that came preinstalled with the laptop I suggest looking at Ubuntu netbook edition, *very* capable OS, if that can't handle it nothing will.
