After windows loads up, it stops beeping but when on the internet - you cannot type in anything!
As soon as you put the mouse in the search bar to type, it types in "...................................................................................", all the way across as if the ".", key is stuck.
Hoping to get some more great help again or at least to be pointed in the right direction would be appreciated but still hoping to go 2 for 2 on tom's hardware.
It's been years so the Gateway laptop is no longer in warranty so my bro is using the old dinosaur Dell desktop from 2001 that takes forever when on the net, lol. Thank you, Stezzo aka Steven Hello, My brother has a gateway laptop he used for 1 1/2 years(2005-2007) until 1 day on startup it keep making repeated beeping during booting.
There are lots of people that sell aftermarket and generic laptop keyboards on ebay for 10-20 bucks. I have replaced 10 or so in the past 2 or 3 years this way. found it, moved the junk from the top of it , removed the batteries.... Stezzo, old Gateways will use F1 to enter bios setup i had same issue on a hp nx9010, it auto inserted ''''''''''''''''''''''' whenever a document opened, plus in Word the OVR (overlay) setting wouldn't and caused massive a fresh install and keyboard reseat fixed those issues if beeps continue in no apparent pattern after doing those two things, and all systems check once OS loads, you've got most up-to-date bios and drivers, etc...Put the Battery back again, TAP F2 key once or twice.than you can change your BOOT Configuration to default ( It worked for me ) then RESTART DONE ( Would take Sometime )..It's been years so the Gateway laptop is no longer in warranty so my bro is using the old dinosaur Dell desktop from 2001 that takes forever when on the net, lol. If that does not help look into replacing the keyboard. First let me apologize for not responding sooner but I had to support a great friend of mine who just lost his dad so with the traveling and the emotions flying and all I was a bit tuckered when I saw your post yesterday, but thank you for your response. I was able to tinker with the keyboard key and mouse speed and when the "........................................................", go across the screen it's super slow doing it. Thanks bucknutty - if I get any closer to disabling the keyboard w/o breaking the darn thing I'll give you a message. Stezzo aka Steven You might try to find instructions or a video on how to just take the keyboard out of your particular laptop.
Most times its only 2 screws and a careful tug, then 1 tiny little ribbon cable.If there is anything else you can think of I'd greatly appreciate it. Stezzo aka Steven I am having same issues but no keyboard stuck issue i mean recently when i start my laptop it keep beeping several beeps but stop and work fine once windows start. if its something wierd like 24-2-9, or 12-1-contionous beeps then its motherboard failure i find most often, not fatal, just Hello, My brother has a gateway laptop he used for 1 1/2 years(2005-2007) until 1 day on startup it keep making repeated beeping during booting.
