N500 46G loud beep when pluggin in a/c

Hi everybody,

I've got an Lenovo 3000 N500-46G, which does a loud beep when I plug in the A/C-adapter. There's no BIOS option for that, I already tried to deactivate the service (Beep) in the hardware manager. But this can't be a solution (OS-wise, installed Vista Home Premium 32-Bit), there are the same loud beeps when I press an not-used button in the BIOS (like # or +). I already got headache Smiley Tongue

Hope there will be a solution...

cheers

Good question! I would like to know the same. The only 'solution' I found so far is to turn the volume down or off. But that is not a real solution of course.

Ah yeah, I turned off the PC-Speakers in volume settings, but there is no option in the BIOS. I'm not the owner, so the owner will call me when he reinstalls Vista...I'm satisfied with this solution, but...

BIOS update please? Smiley Tongue

I have the same problem, but in N500 4233-39G. I know, that in ThinkPad R51e there is the same, but there is ThinkPad Configuration, which allows you to disable this beep. Please better BIOS or configuration application, which allows me to change it in N500.

 

P.S. Sorry for my english.

So this is the solution?

Disable the sound alltogether?

Joke, right?

 

I have the n500 4233-39G and I want to disable the "120 dB Ear-drum Shattering Power State Change Beep", either in BIOS or in some sort of power management util.

 

Hope I'm not asking to much.

Hi,

I solved this problem by disabling the system speakers in Windows. Just deactivate "System" in volume settings. There is no BIOS option atm.

Could you please explain how to do that?

I have in 'sounds' in 'control panel' ALL sounds deactivated, and I don't listen no sounds at all (when windows starts, closes etc etc) but STILL I listen the loud beep.

 

Maybe I just don't understand what you mean, or its because mine is an N500 38g and not a 46g like yours?

I have 39G version and this solution works(thanks). This is in(i have polish Vista, so names may not be the same): Start > Control panel >  Hardware and sound > Sound > select "Speakers" > click button called "Settings"(or "Proporties" ) > go to "Levels" tab > click icon in "PC Speaker" field > click OK > click OK > close all windows.

Rightclick on the small volume icon next to the clock -> output devices. Then there was an entry namend "System Speakers".

I don't have the notebook around...
