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 :)
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.
This scooter has an S drive controller. The beep code will begin with 10 very fast beeps followed by a number of slower beeps. The number of slower beeps indicates the actual code. It will do this only once. To repeat the beep code, remove and reinsert the key.
Beep code #9 is a possible controller trip.
The key may have been inserted during battery box installation.
The controller may be overheated.
The brake is dragging or pulling too much current.
Remove the key from the key switch before installing the battery box.
If the problem persists shut down the scooter for 10-15 minutes and allow the controller to cool down.
Bottom line is that you may need a new controller or brake. Keep in mind these may be warranty items. A qualified technician may be needed to diagnose and repair the problem. Hope this helps.
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.
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.
