Go into your BIOS and review your settings. The beeping was to notify you that someone has opened your computer (a security measure). Check that your settings match correctly with: hard drive, RAM, and procerror speed (not set to Turbo if that is an option). Also, are you running more than one anti-virus? Are you running Windows Defender?

Hp cq60 keybord not working it beeping


Hi,

Myself Srikanth, I am tech support eng at HP. At this point, I recommend you to contact the HP service center if it is under Accidental damage warranty which covers liquid spills. Or if you are computer savy, you can remove the keyboard laptop keyboard connection and check with the external keyboard. This issue will occer when any liquid spilled on keyboard and some of the keys were attached to the circuit. If the external keyboard worked fine then just send me the keyboard part number i will help you to purchase the new keyboard.


Thank you
Srikanth

Keybord not working hp cq60


Well, oily is not good. Try reseating the RAM, and HP often recommends using a can of air to blow it free of dust.

The solution is in the beeps. Check which BIOS manufacturer you during boot.

Factory settings for toshiba satellite laptop


Back up all your data to external media before you begin the process.

If you make a mistake during the process, your laptop may not be able to turn on or load the operating system, so copy valuable information to media where you can retrieve it, even if your laptop malfunctions.


Turn on your system and wait for it to finish loading Windows and start-up programs. You can tell when the operating system has loaded, and start-up programs have been initiated, by the HDD (hard disk drive) light.

It should have came with discs. Put one in and reboot the laptop


Insert the system disk when the hard disk light stops blinking, signaling that the processor has finished accessing the hard disk, and that the system is idle.
Shut down your laptop after you insert the disc.


You do not have to wait for the computer to access data from the disc.


Turn on the laptop again. Keep pressing the "C" key continuously as the system boots. This will enable the laptop to boot from the disk.

Once the disk is accessed, the laptop will show

the message "Loading Files;" begin the factory reset process by always selecting the default option that pops up.

You can also use the "F12" key to boot from the disk.

Highlight the CD/DVD option and press "Enter" to begin the restore process.

Follow the on-screen instructions until the process finishes

Restoring a Toshiba laptop back to factory settings may take 30 to 45 minutes.


Unless you terminate a process by pressing "Cancel," your laptop will be rolled back to factory defaults, when the operating system installs completely.


hope this helps

Inspiron 1100 skips when playing media


Hi Beth

doesn't sound like hardware failure.

resource check: make sure you have at least 1GB of free space on your hard drive. Close all other programs to free up as much RAM as possible. See if that helps the Issue.... sometime that system just can't allocate enough resources to a task for it to ever complete. If this helps then it's time to do some house cleaning. Best practive is to keep at least 20% of your hardrive empty so it may be time to let go of some stuff. A large amount of installed unused programs can also be an issue especially if they are set to automatically start at logon. remove unused programs highly recommended.

Assuming none of that helps here is what I would do to focus on getting media player operational

recommended steps to solve problem:
1. open media player and under the HELP drop down select the check for updates option
2. If there are updates install them and see if that resolves the issue... (try a reboot if it doesn't work after it's updated)
note: if it only happens with some CDs and not others then the issue may be with specific CODECs which are instructions for the player to be able to understand the media format. If these are not standard/ Titled US or European DVDs produced by the movie companies then this could be your issue. there should be an error telling you that it couldn't play the file.

3. download a new version of windows media player.. just google "windows media player download". Don't install it yet just download the installation file to your hard drive.
4. open the CONTROL PANEL from the START menu and select ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS
5. Select REMOVE A PROGRAM if your using one of the newer interfaces...not necessary in classic view.
6. Select ADD OR REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS... its one of the big button options on the left side.
7. find WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER in the list and uncheck it.
8. hit FINISH or NEXT or OK whatever the option at that point is and agree to making the changes.
9. Reboot the machine once it is unistalled if it doesn't already ask you to do so
10. Logon and open MY COMPUTER and locate the new installation file you downloaded in step3
11. Double click the file to initiate the installation... just accept all the defaults by click yes and I agree and Ok and FINISH until it is done.
12. Reboot once again
13. logon and give it a shot.

hope this helps!

Skipping :(


this is nothing to do with your laptop it's your'e connection speed that's obviously not fast enough or the site is heavy on downloaders causing a slow down of media downloads
