Getting rid of the "Beep" on Boot-up

  John3:16 15:30 30 Mar 03


Anyone know how to get rid of the "Beep" when I boot up my home PC?

I often work in quiet environments, and this desturbs other people.

I'm running W98.

1 Beep is normal.

You could disconnect the internal speaker.

The beep can give important information about the state of health of your machine and I consider it unwise to disable it. If you find it disturbing, don't switch your machine on and off so often. I switch on early morning and switch off late at night. Sometimes I leave it on all night.

That sounds complicated - anything easier?

(...have a tendency to break something else whenever I open the case up...!)

It's one plug to pull off - that's all. No, there's no other way.
