Beep while typing - Yoga 14 - Windows 10 Pro

I recieved this laptop (Thinkpad Yoga 14) recently which came with Win 8 Pro (I spent relatively no time on win 8). I went ahead and upgraded to Win 10 since I had the opportunity.

Ever since I upgraded, my machine has been making a 'beep' or 'bleep' noise while I am typing (usually quickly).

This bleep occurs when various combinations of keys are pressed simultaneously (in no particular order).

Some of these are fbj, dcl, sdc, etc...

All of my drivers in the device manager are up to date.

I found no problems whilst troubleshooting.

 

I have not found anyone else with a similar problem.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? - It's extremely annoying.

 

Thanks in advance

Also, disabling Windows Sounds through the "Sounds" menu does not fix this problem.

 

(Couldn't find an option to edit my original post, but I had something to add)

Hi

 

I also have this issue but it is not very common. It is not anoying for me, but I will really like to know what key combinations or what I'm doing to produce that beep when typing.

Re: Beep while typing - Yoga 14 - Windows 10 Pro

I know that this function is common across all ThinkPads (I've come by it even on an old old T440p, and a bunch more of the T-series and my S3 TPY14) and it's warning that a lot of keys are being pressed at random or something... I get it if I spam the arrow keys, wasd, asdf, just about a lot of combinations. Must be some sort of notification to warn you of unintentional keypresses, idk

Have a good day.

Re: Beep while typing - Yoga 14 - Windows 10 Pro

Thanks for the help guys, I just figured it out.

-

1. Go into regedit (registry editor)

2. Follow this path: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Beep

3. Open the 'Start' value

4. Change the value from 1 to 4

5. Restart your computer

 

This fixed the problem for me, and I hope it can help anyone else with a similar issue.

Oh MAN!!! You are AWESOME!! The sad part is I guess I type so slow it never happened with the keys until I read your post and tried it. But the Track Pad, when I did two finger scrolling, drove me crazy hearing that noise everytime I scrolled. Thank you very very very very much!

Yes, I had it, too. And though I'm afraid of regedit, I went in there and did it. And it worked! Thank you so much.
