Kill the *beep*
· 2009-01-16 10:12 by Thijs Kroesbergen for Brokenwire.NET

The PC Speaker on my laptop also plays through the headphones, on maximum volume. So if you are listening to music the beep plays incredibly loud and straight into your ears.

To kill the beep run the following commands from an command prompt (with administrative privileges)

net stop beep

sc config beep started= disabled

I tried this on both Vista and Server 2003. A nice way to test if this worked for you: in the command prompt type:

echo ^G

(echo and ctrl+G) then Enter. With the beep on this destroys your ears, with the beep of you won't hear a thing.

Happy listening!
