No Caps Lock Beep

I have tried without success to turn on the 'beep'you should get when using Caps Lock (and Num and Scr Lock) using the correct procedure over and over again. (Accesibility menue, checking NumLock shortcut hotkey is on, etc etc.) The menue pops up when I press the Fn / NumLock Hotkey, but I cannot get any sound from the CapsLock key although sound is OK for everything else?

Any ideas? O/S: WXP2

In Accessibility Options have you ticked Use Togglekeys?

Don’t know what you are on about I have two Desktops one 98se other XP Home Laptop XP home and none of them beep with the above. Only thing I can think is Sounds as got turned off In Control Panel\Sounds and Audio\Sounds Check there and try by experiment

Yes VoG I have ticked Use ToggleKeys but get no sound. Hamish, thanks for your link from which I have activated Sound Sentry, so I can get the desktop (etc) flashing when CapsLock is pressed, but still no sound! (though Sound sentry is supposed to flash WHEN there is a sound!) Woodchip ---- I am not sure you understand what this is about, presumably you have not turned the beep on (ie.Togglekeys). My Caps Lock beeps OK on my W98, but not on my WXP machine. The mystery continues.

The sounds are made through the PC speaker, not your external speaker click here

I've just checked this - the beep comes from inside the tower, not the speakers.

So, do you have a PC speaker and is it working?

As VoG™ has stated. I have also checked and the instructions in the link work forme

Thanks everyone. My computer is a Laptop, an ACER Aspire 5001 WLMi, with its own speakers. So if I am understanding your posts correctly I should be getting the beeps, when the Accessibility options are correctly activated, should I not?

Not as I understand it. The 'PC speaker' is different to the speakers that play wav files and so on.
