Really Loud and Annoying Beep with regard to power cord

Hello

I have a N500 and everything: I plug/unplug the power cable or battery becomes low a really loud beep is emitted by the laptop, try as I might I cant seem to get rid of this sound.

Is there anything I can do about it, if I mute the laptop it also mutes, but I would much rather remove it outright.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

I believe there must be a setting option in "sound " section of the Operating System. There should be a leveler for pc sounds or you may try system sounds. try to keep it down.

Hello, thanks for the reply, I looked through the sounds but this beep is not in it, I dont think its a windows sound, but a lenovo sound

Re: Really Loud and Annoying Beep with regard to power cord

This worked on my Lenovo 3000 N500:

 

In "Control Panel" open "sound",Then in sound, in the "Playback" tab, double click on the "speakers" icon. This will open up a "speaker properties window. Click on the "Levels" tab and this will show two areas, speakers and PC speaker, click on the little speaker icon for the pc speaker and it should show a circle with a slash through it showing that the pc speaker is disabled. Click OK or apply whichever is highlighted.

Re: Really Loud and Annoying Beep with regard to power cord

THANK YOU!! Have lenovo y710 and the  Lenovo service dept. said motherboard was shot-it's over 2 yrs. old so didn't want to invest in that.  They insisted they were 100% sure this was cause. But I've tried your suggestion-kudos to you!!!!
