    Default System Beep on D620

    This appears to be hardware specific; it doesn't happen on my other Dell models. - heck, I don't even know if they have the PC speaker or not...

    This is for a Dell Latitude D620. I searched for 'beep' and 'd620' in the forums and didn't find anything. If anyone knows of a better search pattern, lemme know, and I'll keep digging!

    When scrolling through the MAN files, if I scroll to the end, I get a horribly loud system beep. I also get it at any shutdown or poweroff command, which is quite annoying at 2am.
    Its not the audio card - it is the PC speaker. I'm not sure if anyone has encountered this before, or if its even been covered.

    My apologies if this has been covered; I found numerous articles for disabling the pc speaker in the XP control panel, but not *nix
    I know I can pull the pc speaker, as per the d620 service manua (sorry, can't link ya just yet), but it is a company laptop afterall and I'd prefer to find a software disable.

    Have you checked in your comps BIOS settings to correct this? Not sure if its there or not..but it could be labeled something like system beep or volume or even pc speakers..who knows.

    When I was changing out memory last time in my D620 I went ahead and unhooked that speaker. My D820 does it as well and I have not seen any bios options for disabling it. You think the here and there beeps are bad try accidentally typing cat on a encrypted file and listen to it beep over and over for about 5 mins straight.

    Ya... I just broke down and ripped that sucker apart. Was actually easier in the long run... now when i use XP w/ Office 2k7, it doesn't beep either. Thanks for the advice though
