Specs: Seven, 6049 MB
Windows 7 gives two beeps at start up then asks which OS I want to load or do a memory check. I only have Win 7. Did the memory check and it was OK. After entering the Win 7 OS option windows then beeps about 80 times ( seems to be about once for each file loaded ????) until the coalescing squares appear and PC asks for login and starts normally. This appears to have started after a friend downloaded Ubuntu directly to a DVD on the PC.

get rid of the wireless mouse! Get a good wired usb optical and you will definitely have less problems

Since you are getting to the OS the beeps are not hardware codes which never go that high in beeps anyway.

Sounds like your system got infected.
See if you can go to a restore point before the download
update and run your antivirus/antimalware
run chkdsk /f on the drive to make sure of no disk/file corruption

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

OK, thanks guys but that did not work. I restored twice did a deep scan with AVG and then with Windows Defender updated to the latest databases and still have the same problem.

Should I start with CCleaner and Super anti spyware and /or a HijackThis log ?

I just tried another HP comp with Win7 that I have and this did the same thing. I disconnected the MS wireless mouse and rebooted without problems on both comps. So it had to be the mouse causing the problem. Any way, every time I boot I disconnect the mouse before and it all boots normally.

Try a different wireless channel on the mouse, if available. Or use a different USB port for the wireless receiver ( ? ) and see if it helps.
