Windows 2000/XP/Vista - Disabling the internal speaker (beeps)

December 2016





Issue

Even if you turn off the sound, the MS-DOS programs can still "beep" the internal speaker of the computer.

This can be annoying.

Solution

  • Here's how to disable it once and for all.
  • Type in an MS-DOS window (Start> Run> cmd):


net stop beep 
sc config beep start= disabled
  • (Do not forget the space after the = sign)
  • Its done for the internal speaker.


Note that: This trick does not remove the beeps produced by the process of the bios during startup.
