    Is the keyboard connected via a PS2 connection or USB? Also what version of Windows are you using and what is the make & model of your PC?

    I use windows xp, compaq pc, compaq preario, amdathens xpprocessor, ps2 keyboard, tells me plugged into keyboard port and device is working properly. I have installed all windows updates and still the beeping continues and cannot use keyboard, I was going to try recovery from startup but alas without a keyboard this is not possible. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Hi - Continuous beeps indicate memory or video card problem. Switch of the pc and remove the casing/cover. Touch a bare metal part of the casing to discharge any static. Make sure all memory sticks and cards are pushed fully into their slots. Replace the cover and turn on the pc and see if this has fixed it. Regards.
