I have a laptop which starts beeping as soon as its switched on. It is not a BIOS thing because it loads into Windows OK but continues to beep! I can't find any stuck keys but it is the sound which a stuck key would make. If trying to type, just get a continuous line of "h" . Have removed the "h" key, cleaned and replaced it. Still the same. Have checked for viruses. Any suggestions!? Please help!
I have the laptop connected to the mains power so that is not an issue. Windows XP starts without a problem. But once I go into anything (program, web page) the typing area begins to fill with the letter "h" adnauseum. The beep sound accompanies the letter h.
Well, I dont know what has changed, but the problem has gone. In retrospect, the laptop was feeling quite hot underneath (I was using it on my lap), so maybe tht was the cause after all?? Thanks for all your suggestions.
