Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Loud fast beeps on boot.
Very loud... It seems to quit when i press the Esc key a couple of times but it still beeps a lot. The only other problem is notice is that the windows logo key will only open Start Menu it does not work with shortcuts like windows + E for explorer.Reminds me of a stuck key...
External USB keyboard works fine except right after booting the
icons on the desktop keep flashing very fast like the tab key is stuck
after I press the Esc key a couple of times it stops and works normally.
I am guessing its the keyboard or maybe the motherboard is failing.
Looks indeed as if the TAB key was stuck or malfunctioning. The most common cause for such behavior is a liquid spilled on the keyboard, a bit of which got between the layers of the keyboard membrane films and causes intermittent semi-short between conductive areas.
A trace of liquid caught between plastic films is hard to get rid of, as it practically sealed and doesn't evaporate.
If it doesn't go away, you may need to replace the keyboard, which is not very expensive fortunately,

Hi, could be motherboard, but you will get a loud beep when you have a memory problem. Try replacing memory chip before motherboard. Hope this helps, regards
