It sounds like you have a ToughBook with a NON-US Keyboard or keyboard layout. The physical "SLASH" key is the last key on the bottom row above the SPACEBAR row.
It is the key on the FAR right side just to the left of the right-side
SHIFT key. Make sure in the taskbar that the EN sign is shown
(on the bottom right side of the screen next to the date/time.
If it is shown FR or ES then your keyboard is in French or Spanish.
You can try to use the ALT+SHIFT key combination to toggle
the FR or ES back to EN (English). If not, then you must
ADD the English keyboard in the Control Panel under
Regional Settings (Clock, Language and Region in Windows 7).
Under Keyboards Click "keyboard" then Click "add" then
choose English (United States), Keyboard then US (only).
That is it. Make sure you select US as "Default" and then you
won't have to go thru all this ever again.

In my experience with Panasonic Toughbooks,
when there is a continuous beep then it means
one of the keyboard "KEYS" is stuck.
I would then press repeatedly every single key
in order to figure out which one was specifically stuck.
Otherwise try plugging in an external keyboard.
In the most extreme case, try disconnecting the built-in
keyboard and then plugging in an external keyboard.
A replacement keyboard should not cost more than
$20 or $30 except if your keyboard is one of the fancy
backlit keyboards. A backlit keyboard can be replaced
with a conventional regular keyboard without any
consequences. A backlit keyboard is usually $200+.

Initially, have you checked/pressed on the "Scroll Lock" key (between Print Screen & Pause). To my knowledge, on most keyboards, the three common indicator lights are: Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
The half-white screen is definitely not a good sign. The "hold and tap" screen you see is the alignment screen normally seen at a "fresh" startup.
If this is the PPC6800 Mogul, there is a small pinhole reset button on the bottom of the unit. Using the stylus, push the button, This will "soft reset" the unit.
If this doesn't work, you can try hard resetting it:
1. Press and hold both softkeys on the device. (The soft keys are the buttons to the left and right of the center navigation wheel with the white dots on them) Keep these keys pressed, and at the same time, use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your device.
2. Release the stylus but keep the softkeys pressed when you see the following message on your device screen: “Do you want to erase all user data and restore to manufacture default?” 3. Slide open the keyboard, and press R to restore to factory default or press X to exit the hard reset process.
This may take a few tries, as it's hard to hold the buttons and push the reset button.
