Startup sound- How to STOP

2009-12-30, 3:52 AM

Startup sound cannot be stopped via control panel/sound, etc. Nor can it be stopped by turning off sound using the button to right of keyboard. It can be stopped by pressing F2 while computer is booting up. This reveals BIOS (whatever that is) and proceed using keyboard arrows to navigate. Some in the forum have counselled using the control panel/sound approach. It doesn't work. F2 on booting does. I couldn't find this solution in Lenovo help and two fruitless episodes on  1/2 hr hold.  Are you listening Mr.Lenovo??

so to turn off the startup sound, you have to press f2 everytime you boot up?

or one time would permanently shut off the startup sound?

If you press F2 on the startup there will be a tab that says Advanced.  On the Advanced screen look for the startup sound volume it should be on 2.  Use either F5 or F6 to scroll the sound volume up and down once you've selected the volume option.  I can't remember which one it is and I know that you won't be able to see the value change you just gotta kinda guess till it shows 0 which will fix the noise.

On the Y550P, the option is in the BIOS under the Configuration tab. It is named "Boot Logo Volume," which confused me initially as I was thinking of volume as in drive. Set it to 0 and enjoy a nice, quiet POST.
