Re: computer beeping loudly
It could be that you have a keyboard malfunction, however it looks like there is a bios update that will eliminate the beep at start up. Go to Toshiba's support site and download the bios update. if that doesn't fix the problem then try a new keyboard. Being only 2 months old it should fall under warranty.

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,
I had the same problem - almost took it apart and tried to get to the HD, but then realized it was a stuck key.
Try tapping the keyboard, maybe one key at a time, just to be sure that there isn't a key that the computer is registering as pressed. Then try rebooting.
Hope that helps!
Disable system "beep" on Windows XP:
Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Device Manager -> Show Hidden Devices -> Non Plug-and-Play Drivers -> Beep (Stop and Disable) -> restart
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.
