My Compaq Presario V2000 recently produces continuous short beeps everytime the notebook is started. After pressing ESC key multiple times, the beeping will stop. The short beeps come on again at Windows XP login screen. The beeps stopped after successful login. Hope someone could enlighten what could possibly be wrong with it. Thank you.

Do you have the exact model number? if you go to the compaq website: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/pfinder...c=us&dlc=en and search for the v2000 series compaq presario laptop, it brings up many different model numbers.

After we know the exact model number of your laptop, then we can look through their support guides/manuals, which should have a palce that explains what the beep codes mean.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...833&lang=en I skimmed through the guide, but didn't really see much about just a continuous beep. However, if there's other signs you notice, maybe they're in there
