    you have to enter your product key and activate the copy of your operating system (microsoft, mac, etc). If you dont have one, call them and get one.

If it's a laptop look on the bottom or behind the battery for a Microsoft license key, on a PC look on the outside of the case for the Key, write it down and turn the computer on and click on start (circle at the bottom left for windows 7) and right click on computer, select properties, at the bottom of the page there is a place to type in the product key.

SOURCE: Hearing continuous beep sound at startup that disappears on Esc

I started having the smae problem yesterday with my Acer 1410 bought end of 2009. It started after I had stoped some suspicious process to work on start up (using msconfig). During the night I scanned the computer for virus but found nothing. Tonight I will enable those process to work on start up again and see what happens.
I will post the information tomorrow.

At turn on it say ( Press the esc key for startup menu ) when I press the esc key ( ESC...pause startup comes up...

When you turn on your computer, you do NOT have to enter the startup menu. Do not press any keys when it asks you to press the Esc key. Once that screen goes away, it will take a minute for Windows to boot up and your good to go.
Thanks for using FixYa.

try starting it in safe mode, right after you turn it on you will se option like esc, f1 and f10 at the bottom of the screen, press the f8 key and a menu will display, use arrow keys to go down to safe mode option then press enter, do it quick, you only have 25 seconds to do it before computer starts normally, you wont see the f8 option but you have to press it, if it doesn't work, try keeping it pressed till menu shows...

Descaling warning

Try pressing the ESC button.
If that does not work, go to the menu (press M), use the up and down arrows until you go to Descaling. There should be a function in the menu to turn off the warning. While in that screen, try the ESC button.
