    I used to have this problem where a hotkey combo would try to intitiate during gameplay causing the so called "ghost beeps".For example (left-ctrl + shift + D or Vent speak + duck + move right >_<) combo would be pressed occassionally but for my utilities program *ctrl + shift + D* was the command for start defrag D drive or something like that. All I did was change the hotkey values to blank
    IMO computer beeps are caused by something trying to happen, but is unable to do so for w/e reason(like gaming ).

    hope this helps you out

    *edit* read post again, you're also getting an error were single keys are causing beeps, this issue is usually caused after a key combo is pressed(start program or w/e), AND then the single key command is in error because there is no command associated with the depressed key (usually to do with text input but not always).

    one question what type of laptop is it? the same as your sig?
    I just disabled the Hotkeys in the registry.

    It's funny, because you just described the situation better than me and you aren't even here.

    The way you described it seems like exactly what is happening. SOME combination of keys is attempting to start, or starting or a program. THEN, single key presses are causing beeps, or holding a key causes multiple beeps. One thing I forgot to mention, which goes along with what you said is after this occurs, I can no longer use the keyboard to purchase in the buy menu. At that point, I must use the mouse to purchase. This goes along with the computer opening another program as well. I will see if it continues to happen with Hotkeys disabled, although I thought Hotkeys only involved the Windows button. Thanks a lot for the input. More is always welcome.

    P.S. - Yes, I am playing on the Asus N51Vn in my signature.

    Do this next time u can't buy in buy menu or the keys beep,
    alt-tab out of game and see what programs (or processes)
    have started, make sure to note before playing what is already
    running.
    Also, make sure hotkeys are disabled in any programs running in tray not
    just windows registry.

    I think we're on the same page here. I tried this very quickly when in the buy menu one time and didn't see any more active windows than before I started playing (albeit I didn't run task manager to check). When I went back into the game, I still couldn't use the keyboard to buy. I thought maybe switching out and back into the game would do it, but it didn't (atleast not that time). Excellent input here, and I think we're on the right track.

    I'm going to try and recreate this, sadly the laptop with my steam games has been RMA'd :/
    But I'll install it on my other one, which one did u play source or 1.6?
    Can u also give me a list or what starts when u boot up ur computer?
    I find the easiest way to find this is through msconfig.
    Maybe if I see your list then it will jog my memory on what I did last time.

    Man, you are really going out of your way to try and help me out. It's truly appreciated.

    I'm playing 1.6, I don't own CS:Source (atleast not yet).

    Below are a couple of screenshots to show what is starting on boot-up (yes, there are still a lot IMO, but it's fast and it doesn't bother me...yet ). Thanks again!!

    Update:
    It just happened twice during a session of playing and here's what happened.

    First time:
    Would start beeping with single key presses. I used alt-tab to exit the program, then re-entered and it was still happening. So, I used alt-tab again, opened task manager and there were no extra extra programs running. I then reopened the CS window, and the beeping was gone. LOL

    Second time:
    Started beeping again with single key presses. This time, the windows cursor was showing up in the game (another reason to believe a program is attempting to open IMO). I used alt-tab and opened task manager, returned to the game and the beep was still there. LOL

    I feel like I'm going crazy or something. LOL

    Wait a minute.

    So the beeping is occurring in-program, or is it originating from the laptop itself?

    When you say it's "beeping" I assume it's one of those error beeps that originates from the motherboard.

    I'm not really sure how to answer you question. It does only happen during the game and it comes through the speakers or headphones, whichever I am using. It does sound like an error beep, but one could never know.

    I think I MIGHT have found the cause of this. When pressing Control and Space together, this shows up on the task bar:



    This is what it looks like normally:



    What is this crap? LOL

    Is this a language selection option or something?

    how about a reformat and test games without installing anything other than the needed components installed to check if it is a software or hardware problem?


    oh lol i see, youre changing between languages, you should press shift plus tab again when your cursor icon pops up or whatever the hotkey for switching between languages is.
