Question

How do I disable the beeping that happens when I type too fast on my keyboard?

Answer

When multiple keys are depressed on a ThinkPad keyboard at the same time this may cause the laptop to beep. This is a symptom of a condition Lenovo refers to as "Unmanageable Key Combinations". It occurs because there are too many inputs coming in from the keyboard at the same time.

 

Here is a procedure to disable keyboard beeps in BIOS:

 

1. Reboot the ThinkPad while pressing F1 repeatedly to enter into BIOS.
