Rapid beeping

Can you specify WHEN and perhaps what was on the screen? What were you doing when the problem started?

I have Dell Inspiron 1440 Laptop. I am using it fop almost 2 years. But recently there is a problem when I turn on my laptop. At the start up I hear a continuous beep (beep-beep-beep-beep-.....beep....)...

I would check to make sure that no keys are stuck down, if they are they oveload a buffer in the computer and the beeping will drvie you crazy. Get some compressed air and blow under the keys or you can vacuum them sideways don't do it straight down or you'll **** the keys off :)

Acer extensa 5620 starts booting with a beeping sound . any way when some keys are pressed the beeping sound stops and the copmuter performs normally.

This is likely caused by a stuck key somewhere on the keyboard. A computer's BIOS will beep repeatedly if it is receiving too much input when booting, like if you were holding down a letter key while starting up. By pressing other keys you're probably breaking the repeating input which is why it stops beeping and works normally.

My recommendation would be to check all of the keys on your keyboard to see if any of them are stuck down or generally sticky, or if any of them appear damaged in any way.

If they are not, it may be a problem in the connection from the keyboard to the laptop's motherboard, which would likely require the laptop's keyboard to be replaced, which can be a tricky process. I definitely advise consulting a professional to do a repair like that.

Hope this is helpful!

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.

My toshiba satelite laptop beeps continuosly, non-stop

First, check the memory (RAM) of your computer. remove and put it back in. Also checkif therre is only one or two memory sticks in, so you can check on both. It should work fine, and if not, try replacing the memory of your laptop.

Beep noise during booting and no keyboard response

Sounds like the key is stuck. You will have to remove the keypad to check the switch underneath.

Unable to keyin password while XP login page display

If I understand correctly, Yvonne - your keyboard just beeps when you key in the password? And then you are not passing this point -

It may be the keyboard itself - the beeping may be a stuck key.

Try to boot your system into SafeMode. Turn the system on and as soon as you see the Logo, begin tapping the f8 key. You should be given an option of how to boot your system. Select SafeMode. The next screen is the operating system (Win XP) press enter. The next screen will list all the accounts - plus the Administrator which is the one that you'll want to select. If you didn't add an administrator password during the last installation of Windows, you should just be ablr to press enter and move on to the desktop,

Remember - the Administrator can do anything -

Let me know how you make out, but please note: There's a limit as to what can be done with password workarounds due to privacy and the liability factor.

This is normally a indicator that key is stuck, or multiple key strikes on the keyboard. It could also be an intermittent problem. Either way, this isn't something to get overly concerned with, unless it gets worse.
