LOUD and very annoying BEEP - Y430 XP SP3

Needless to say but this sound is plain ridiculous.


Who was the genius who came up with this idea? Seriously.


I have the Y430 and recently installed Windows XP Pro SP3. I remember that disabling the PC speaker in Vista worked, but unfortunately that does not work with XP. With all the suggestions that have been mentioned, I have yet to find a way to be able to disable this power beep:


There is no option in the Advanced BIOS menu.


There is no PC speaker volume control.


Disabling the 'Beep' option in the device manager does not work.


I'm tempted to try the BIOS update even though it says it's for Windows Vista only just to see if I could get the BIOS option for this speaker.


Would this be a wise choice? Better yet, would it even work?

Re: LOUD and very annoying BEEP - Y430 XP SP3

hi, Go to panel de control, Sounds, You need to mute the option 'PC SPEAKER', it work with lastest driver in VISTA, and WIN 7. If mute the 'PC SPEAKER' does not work I will try to update the lastest driver available from the lenovo page. Good Luck, The solution works with a lenovo Y430 the model that has DDR3, I know that you computer might differ, because there is basically two different y430. Remember to mute, for some reason regulate the sound will not work.
