Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed

My keyboard beeps when you press ANY key. If you hold it down it beeps, then it beeps again and types the key, this takes over a second to type each key. This isnt because of a slow repeating rate either, and I've unplugged it multliple times or tried restarting the computer. I currently am having the problem on my gateway computer which uses Microsoft Windows XP SP2. Please help and thank you. key beep second before letter comes up

The reason these beeps are happening is because there might be a key that is slightly depressed enough to where its registering keystrokes. Move your fingers all over the keyboard and see if you the beeps stop after you do that. If it still is going on then that means your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

HAVE YOU TRIED ANOTHER KEYBOARD? TRY YOUR ON SCREEN KEYBOARD UNDER "ALL PROGRAMS" "ACESSORIES" THEN "ACCESABILITY" CLICK ON "ON-SCREEN KEYBOARD. IF THE ON-SCREEN KEY BOARD WORKS YOUR KEYBOARD IS BAD.

SOURCE: Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed

I found out what was wrong in my case. Someone had tampered with the accessibility options

So for anyone with keyboard problem check :
In Windows XP : control panel-> accessibility options -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.

In Windows Vista : Ease of access -> Ease of access center -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.

    Turning off my green keys on HP pavilion desktop keyboard?


    Hi,

    How to turn off Sticky Keys: disable the Ease of Access feature
    Tip: use the Windows Ease of Access Center






    How to turn off Sticky Keys: what are Sticky Keys and why turn them off?
    Sticky Keys is a Windows Ease of Access feature that makes it possible to use keyboard shortcuts or type capital letters without needing to press more than one key at once. Normally, you'd hold down the Shift key while pressing a letter to type a capital, or hold down the Ctrl key while pressing 'S' to save a document. It's even trickier if you want to use a shortcut such as Ctrl-Alt-Del or Ctrl-Shift-Esc.

    With Sticky Keys, you can press Ctrl, Shift or Alt, let go and then press another key - Windows will interpret this as pressing two keys together. You should also hear a beep if you have speakers connected.

    That's great if you're disabled and can't press two keys at once, but what if you want to disable Sticky Keys?

    How to turn off Sticky Keys in Windows 8
    You can't press Shift another five times. Instead, you need to bring up the Start menu (or Start screen in Windows 8) by pressing the Windows key. Now type "ease of access" and click on Ease of Access in the list of results.

    If you're using Windows 8, you need to click on the Ease of Access Keyboard settings result, and then it's a simple case of sliding the Sticky Keys toggle to 'off'.

    If this does not help you. Let us know the below details to understand the issue bettery.

    Unlock numeric key pad on lap top


    your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

    There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.
