Y430- loud beep when connecting power

How do I disable the extremely loud "beep" when I connect/disconnect the AC adapter to my laptop?

Welcome to the forum!

 

Open the Device manager (Control Panel --> System --> Device Manager), then click on "Show hidden devices" --> Non Plug and Play drivers, disable the device named "Beep" and reboot your computer.

Thanks for the response.

Unfortunately, I disabled it, and it didn't change anything.

I double-clicked on "Beep" to bring up  the "Beep Properties" window.

I then clicked on the "driver" tab. There was a section named "current status" which had a "start" and "stop" button. I clicked "stop."

Then in the "startup" section, I selected "disabled"

I rebooted my computer and verified it kept those settings, but when I plug in or unplug the AC adapter, the deafening beep still happens.

I read more about the problem and found that all the solutions that apply to ThinkPads don't seem to work with the other series...but you could still try this.

Ok, I figured out a way to stop it. I went to speaker properties and turned the PC speaker off.

I'd rather be able to isolate the power beep than mute all PC sounds, but I guess that's the only fix for now.

You may be able to turn it off in BIOS. Unfortunately as I don't have an ideaPad notebook I can't tell you where. On thinkPads it is found in the BIOS > Config > Alarm menu, Power Control Beep.

 

Hopefully this helps

Re: Y430- loud beep when connecting power

Here is the answer I just got from a very nice man at tech support for my daughter's G series computer.  Hope it works for you!

 

Go to Control Panel

Select Sound Icon

Select Playback Tab

Select Speakers

Choose Properties

a new window will pop up

Select the Levels Tab

Find PC Beep and check Mute

 

This should mute the loud hornlike beep it makes when you disconnect or reconnect the a/c adapter without muting your entire system.
