Beep sound while turn on / booting laptop

When I turn on my laptop (Acer Aspire 4710, 2GB, Vista Home Premium), I heard beep sound coming so many time and after that I got "Windows Boot Manager" (See attached image). Also you can see the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-lZ6qkVfWg

I tried the "Windows Memory Diagnostic" as shown in the Windows Boot Manager and nothing error with Memory.

I can boot and log on to Vista.

And for my surprise I can't use the "Del' key of the keyboard of my laptop. Maybe the problem is with the keyboard (searched through Google)? I also can't double tap the mouse pad to take an action of the mouse. And sometime, when I clicked a file, it take me to confirm "you want to delete the file/send to recycle bin?" :(

How to fix it?

Hm, maybe because of the wheater where I live is cold so the key frozen?

Ok, the laptop is back. The 'beep' sound is gone but the "Windows Boot Manager" still appear and also the:

My friend said the problem is with the keyboard.

The warranty of this lappie is over :head:

Re-Install? WTH!!! Please, I don't wanna do this. Huge of updates must be downloaded again. Hmm... maybe restoring a backup!? But not now :(

Just checking Windows Update and just for Net Framework the important update. Maybe by updating the Touchpad Synaptic driver? What about the 'Del' key then?

I can clearly see that something like coffee powder arround the Del key. And if I touch it using a hard paper, it's cohering. Maybe by accidentally I drop something that makes the Del key not work.

Maybe it's time to dismantle my laptop and clean everything (service the laptop).

Thanks, I'll try the live CD.

I think it's totally keyboard failure. I dismantled the keyboard, pull out the Del key and other key near, clean the keyboard using alcohol but still no luck. If I use a USB keyboard, my laptop works as normal.

My fault :( (I think). I put the electricity anti mosquito near the laptop (especially the Del key) non stop. Maybe the sircuit of the keyboard broken.

I'll take the keyboard (laptop) to the city where I bought it and let them (the store) to check it. Maybe on May 2th1 I'll take the keyboard to the store.

While waiting, I wonder how much is the price for the new keyboard for my laptop? My laptop is Acer Aspire 4710.
