After sorting out one problem I now seem to have another with my HP G70 notebook.

When I start up before it loads into vista the screen stays black and it makes a VERY LOUD beeping noise for about 2 minutes. This noise sounds like a counting beep, and then after this time it loads up and is as normal.

Could this be a battery problem? (Am waiting for a new one to arrive).

Can you note the actual sequence of beeps, they probably repeat themselves.Look here.click here

Check all your keys, might be a stuck key.

I think it might have been a stuck key, i've just checked them all and brushed off any dust, started up again and there was no noise.

Thank you both
