How to turn off “Beep” sound from PC Speaker in Windows

Posted by: mynag In: Miscellaneous|Solutions & Tips|Windows

I would not advise anyone to disable their PC speaker unless they have¬† a good reason. Certain softwares usually use PC speaker to produce a “beep” sound to alert the users of errors encountered.¬† Some motherboards comes with temperature monitoring software which when installed may use the PC speaker to warn users when temperatures reaches above a threshold level.

However, here’s what you do if you really decided to turn the PC speaker off for some reason.
I would recommend using Windows Device Manager method rather than meddling with the hardware and wires which can turn out to be quite messy.

You must have administrative rights for this to work.

  1. Click the <Start> at the taskbar or press the Windows Key on your keyboard to bring up the Windows menu.
  2. Click Control Panel
  3. In the Control Panel, select and click <Administrative tools>.
  4. In the Administrative tools, click <Computer Management>.
  5. In the Computer Management window, on the left side, select Device Manager.
  6. Right Click on Device Manager and select View and select Show Hidden Devices
  7. On the right side of the panel, scroll down until you see Non-Plug and Play devices and double click on it.
  8. Under Non-Plug and Play device, scroll down until you see Beep and right mouse click on it and select Properties.
  9. At the Beep properties dialog box, select the tab Driver.
  10. At the Current Status, click Stop and you should see the status indicating Stopped.
  11. click <Ok> to complete the process.
