Windows 7: Laptop beeps loudly on powering on. Can be avoided by pressing f10.

Laptop beeps loudly on powering on. Can be avoided by pressing f10.

whenever i power on my laptop, there is a loud beeping sound which continues forever. I have to shut it down by pressing the power button for 5 seconds. What I have found is that when i start the laptop and keep pressing f10 and then exiting the page without saving the changes, the laptop starts normally without any problems. What could be the cause and how do i solve it?

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

The beep is a signal that there is something wrong with the computer that should be fixed. Stopping the beep does not solve the problem
Computer never stops beeping or has solid beep.
