its like 1 beep then fast continous beeps and 1 long beep.
Curious, make sure that none of the keys are stuck pressed. It happens some times on heavily used keyboards, you'd have a sticky key that does'nt go up after its pressed down. Make sure that this is not the case.
Yup, my thoughts aswell, sounds more like a hardware issue.
By the way you really shouldn't setup password logins in case of things like this if its a personal pc.
Interesting statement, not sure i agree with that one. Suppose it depends if the machine is shared within the household or you want to try and stop your kids from using the computer. Also, its not that often that you find these issues with keyboards unless its a stuck key which is a physical problem. Most of the time, you will require a PS2 keyboard plugged in during boot since the BIOS needs to detect it, not sure on USB keyboards though, i am guessing you are probably right with that since it will detect the USB when its plugged in.
