Laptop Keyboard only Bleeping

  Colio 18:48 29 Jul 2004

Hi everyone

I have a Dell laptop which is running XP Pro, when a key is pressed the only thing it does is beep. It doesn’t displaying any characters of any of the keys. It has been connected to the internet and hasn’t been dropped – could it be a virus?

Any help much appreciated

It sounds like the keyboard buffer is full.

In english, this would means you have a key stuck down. When you try and press any other keys the PC says 'dont be silly, you have already typed loads of 'somthings', what am i going to do with another 'somthing else' when i still dont know what to do with the first load of 'somthings'?
