Hi, I turned on a friend’s laptop today, a Toshiba satellite, and its making a repeating beeping noise and the keyboard has stopped working altogether. I have checked to see if any of the keys are stuck down but I can’t find any. When I press some of the keys they also produce another beep. Any suggestions as to what could be wrong or as to how this may have occurred?

Any help would be great :D

If you open Notepad, you might be able to see which key is repeating, something like this aaaaaaaaaaaa

Sometimes you can just vacuum the keys (watch out they don't go up the vacuum though).

Can be caused by dust or even moisture. Can also be the connection from the keyboard to the mobo

The Notepad suggestion doesn't seem to show any key as repeating. I will pull it a part and give the keyboard a clean and check the Mobo connection. Thank you for your quick response.
