Edge 14 (Core i3) Beeps On Windows Boot

I just got my new ThinkPad Edge 14:

Core i3 - 370M

4GB Ram

500 GB HD

Intel Wireless ABG

Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit

 

The first time I started it up, and every time since, the computer does continous short/fast beeps once the Starting Windows Screen comes up.  It is the black screen that just says "Starting Windows.."  The beeping will stop after about 10-15 sec, then the 4 circlilng dots above the "Starting Windows" screen come up.  Then windows will come up normally, and everything seems to work fine.

 

I have tried running the HDD test from the Bios, and it passed.  I also ran the Think Vantage Hardware tests, and those came out as well.  I just created recovery disks, and started installing Windows 7 from scratch, and as soon as the 2nd part of the Windows install came up, the beeping came back.  Any ideas on what this could be?

Also, it won't beep when I go into safe mode.

Re: Edge 14 (Core i3) Beeps On Windows Boot

that sounds like there's a key stuck. or something thinks that there's a key stuck.  does it do it at shut down also or just on startup?
