    Two beeps is the generic "THERE IS AN ERROR!" code for this series. 8611 is keyboard related, usually fixed by reseating or replacing the keyboard. These machines, from my own experience, had pretty flaky connections.

    In rare cases, it could be at the system board end, in which case, trust me, just replace it.

    Giving the keyboard a quick clean couldn't hurt either.

    look for a code after the beep cos there are always some numbers showing up after any error message on an IBM laptop,then go to the IBM site and check for what the code stands for. It will help you pinpoint the exact problem u have.
