Possibly a keyboard failure but with that scant bit of a description it's hard to say.

What Operating System?
What make/model of laptop.

Are you typing letters or numbers?
Is the num-lock on or off.
.. How about the Caps-lock?

Can you log-in despite the beeps?
Do the characters you enter show up on the screen?
Does it reboot or just hang on at that screen?
