Stopping The “Beep” When Using The Volume Control In Windows

February 17th, 2009 No comments

One of my top 5 most annoying things ever is the “beep” that occurs in windows xp when moving the volume control on a non factory windows installation.

Here is how to fix it:

The steps are;
1. Right-click on My Computer
2. Click properties
3. On the Hardware tab, click on [Device Manager]
4. On the “View” menu, select “Show hidden devices”
5. Under “Non-Plug and Play Drivers”, right-click “Beep”
6. Click “Disable”
7. Answer [Yes] when asked if you really want to disable it
8. Answer [No] when asked if you want to reboot
9. Right-click “Beep” again.
10. Click “Properties”
11. Click [Stop]
12. On the “Driver” tab, set the Startup type to Disabled
13. Click [OK]
14. Answer [No] when asked if you want to reboot

Thanks to for the fix.
