Why doesn't my keyboard type and there is a "BEEP" every time I press a key? - Solution

There are several reasons why one keypad beeps or beeps, but it is necessary to analyze the causes of the problem. On the one hand, it could be due to a Windows setting related to accessibility options, while another possible reason is due to a physical failure of the keyboard.



Both possibilities are very common and usually generate the beep problem, in any case the solution for both problems is very different. Don't worry, there are a few things we can try to fix your keyboard won't type and beeps when you try to use it.

Fix the problem that the keyboard beeps and cannot be typed

As we have previously indicated, in most cases, the beep problem is due to one Windows configuration or yet physical problem with the keyboard. Next, we will cover both causes, giving you some very simple solutions that you can try. Similarly, if you are having problems with USB ports, you can read our tutorial on how to fix your pc's USB ports, as these sometimes give us that beep in our pc when they are not working properly.


Accessibility options

Physical failure of the keyboard

If, on the other hand, the beeps are constant and appear mainly when the computer starts, it could be due to a keyboard failure. A physical failure in the keyboard it can also generate "beeps", although it is something much more common on laptop keyboards. In turn, failures in laptop or computer player are also common, but there are also ways to repair PC CD / DVD player.

Returning to the problem when typing, this can be due to a physical failure in the keyboard and usually beeps appear when starting the computer. If you think this is your problem, boot your computer normally. Once in the system, open any program with a text box, if you notice that a letter / number / symbol is typed repeatedly then you probably have this problem.

Then, replace the keyboard with another one and check if the problem with beeps and key presses persists. Undoubtedly this is easier with a desktop computer. In the case of the laptop, changing the keyboard can be a little more complicated.



You may need the help of a technician, but if you decide to do it yourself, you can simply remove the keyboard from the laptop. In turn, we recommend use a keyboard via the USB connection. If you can start your computer normally without beeping and use it without any problems, surely your notebook keyboard is damaged and needs to be replaced or repaired.
