    Anyone experiencing this?

    On occasion they keyboard has been making occasional beeping sound... almost like an R2D2 sound with sound like "peeew" (really don't know how to describe it in words)

    I did get a meesage a while ago whete it asked me if I wanted to turn on a feature that disables repeated keypresses??? really cant remember in detail what it said... sorry.

    Hope someone could help... i'll see if I can record it sometime and post it here..

    Beeping not so much but clicking is supposed to happen. It is audio feedback to aid in touch typing.

    almost sounds like an accessibility thing. is it maybe toggle key or something like that? there are settings where you can set the machine to beep when you press keys such as the caps lock. that makes a beep but I wouldn't call it an R2-D2 sound. :)

    I'm having this exact same issue! It's very strange. Usually happens when I press the windows button on the screen. It's starting to really annoy me!

    I think you have the same problem as me. Here's how you can turn of the sound when pressing keys like the start menu key in windows 8 :

    - Go to control panel
    - Click "Ease of access"
    - Click "Change how your keyboard works"
    - Uncheck " Turn on toogle keys"

    You can also see the instructions here
