Windows 7: Boot menu at start up, 2 min of beeps before Win7 successfully starts

Yes, it only beeps when Windows starts; the screen says "starting windows" the entire time it is beeping. I lifted each key with a pair of tweezers, restarted two times, and there was no beeping. BUT, upon the third restart the boot menu came back up, it booted windows without me specifying it to (!), beeped for two minutes, then successfully started windows. It seems we are back where we began, captain, with the two original problems.

Could it be possessed?

Is this the window that is coming up then disappearing immediately?

After your last reply, I tried restarting three times so that I could replicate that problem and get a picture of the boot manager screen that came up last time but it did not come up. Now it won't show the boot manager again; upon restart it says "starting windows" and beeps for varying amounts of time before windows successfully starts.

That is never the screen that I have gotten when the boot manager does come up. It looks like this http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_68sk2PaFt3...lti%20Boot.png but with only Windows 7 as an option to boot from. I have to press f8 from the Boot manager screen that comes up to get to the Advanced Boot Options screen that you are showing me.

That does still sound like a keyboard issue, but in windows what do you get in that boot screen for the msconfig?

Okay, I will try replicating a problem I only now recall having with the shift key pasting clipboard content once we get through this boot thingy.

Windows is still up and running. How do I now look at msconfig, whatever that may be?

Hit windows key+R then in that window type msconfig and hit enter. Then in that new window the boot tab up top.
You can also just hit the windows key and type msconfig then it will show up to click too.

Thank you for your patience. In the boot tab of system configuration I only see "Windows 7 (C:windows) Current OS; Default OS" listed.

No boxes are checked correct in that window on the bottom?

If you go into notepad and try to hold the shifts down (one at a time) and type does it always put out capital letters?

Nothing is checked in the boxes below.

Nothing happens when I only hold down either shift key in note pad. When I hold either shift key down and a letter key it only types that capitalized letter.

That is interesting well you can try in the boot tab setting your timeout to 0 and see if it helps but I don't think your going to be able to fix that booting issue unfortunately. But it does not seem to affect windows once booted so that is good and I guess you will just want to use the sleep option more then shutdown nowadays. Short of unplugging the keyboard in the laptop and using an external one to test you can't really diagnose that issue very well. That menu since you only have one OS listed and the all the boxes are unchecked should not be showing up though and I know of no command at boot to make it appear either, only the F8 at boot to make the safe mode one appear that I linked earlier. Any thing I can find online about that specific issue is always windows thinking the keyboard is bad. Just in case it is something else that is hard to diagnose though I would backup what ever data you can not lose off that machine somewhere else to be safe.
EDIT: I'll ask some more people to take a quick look at your thread and see if they notice something I did not.
