Everytime i switch on my laptop, when it began to load BIOS status that moment, it will bleep continuously non-stop and it hang there with the sound. Now, when i switch on the laptop, i have to continuously press any key when it load BIOS status to allow it to load windows after that. I think maybe is there something wrong with my keyboard. Any soloution??

First make sure no key's are jammed down as this would cause a continious beeping tone

Can you post up the motherboard and chip make/model numbers and i'll look for any information on the bios errors

If you can get into windows?

Go Here and download a prgram called Everest. Once installed, load up and this will give you all the information in regards to your laptop IE, make and model number of motherboard. Post up once you have these

when i switch on the laptop, i have to continuously press any key when it load BIOS status to allow it to load windows after that.

Do you mean to say that after it loads Windows, it runs OK?
When you start it up and hit the delete key to enter the BIOS, does it make the noise then?

yes, after it load windows, it is fine.
the problem is only the booting up process.
when u boot up the computer, it will load bios status and then windows.
the bleep sound occur when loadin bios and if i dun press any key it will hang there with the bleep sound.

Humor me and reset the CMOS by removing the system board battery for 10 minutes or so
Not sure where NEC puts it. Either underneath the keyboard or in the access area where the memory goes. If you have to remove the keyboard, I'd just go ahead and replace the battery

A quick question before I go searching around their site. Was this computer bought in the US or Singapore? Sometimes it makes a difference for downloads and patches

Because it runs fine after you log into Windows, I would tend to rule out memory, video, or hardware errors and you say Device Manager is OK other than your wireless. I usually don't recommend a BIOS update, but in this case it might be warranted. They did have an update in 2005. The BIOS update, your wireless driver and all the other drivers for your laptop are herehttp://www.nec-computers-ap.com/ Just enter your series, then the number
The site for online local (Singapore) support is http://www.nec-computers-ap.com/support The site was on and off for me, a lot of 404 page errors

Wireless issue solve after calling NEC support, opening up case and do some wiring. Back to keyboard issue. How do i fix it?? NEC support say that the keyboard maybe faulty.

The hardest thing will be to find one. I have no idea of where to start looking in Singapore. I haven't worked on any NEC laptops, but it's pretty straight-forward. You remove the bezel above the keyboard and remove 2 to 4 screws. Gently lift it up from the top. It's attached to the system board with a flat ribbon cable. There should be a clip on the system board socket that you slide or lift to open it and gently pull the ribbon out
