Specs: Windows XP
Just received refurbished ToughbookCF 29. When powering up it has a long (over 50) series of beeps. F12 key seems to be what is stopping it. Is this an indication of a serious problem or a simple softare clitch? (This was a fresh install of Windows XP Professional. I had to input the window key and activated windows.)

Granny D,

Before trying anything complicated solutions, something tells me that your keyboard might be on the fritz (50 beeps?!)

By any chance, have you tried another keyboard (hopefully one with a PS2 connection -- i.e. purple connector / not USB )

Thanks, it was a stuck key on the keyboard. Someone else told me to remove keyboard and "wash" it. It worked.
