Usually your CPU beeps when you make mistakes like pressing wrong keys or there is some warning. At times, these beep sounds are very useful for us. But sometimes we don’t want them while doing some very special works.
If these CPU beeps are annoying you or diverting your attention, you can use following registry trick to turn then off!
- Click “Start” button.
- Go to “Run”.
- Write “regedit” and hit ENTER key.
- Go to “HEKY-CURRENT-USER" >> "CONTROLPANEL" >> "SOUND”.
- Now double click on “Beep” at right side of the page.
- Change the value to “NO”.
Thats it! Close the registry editor. Those annoying CPU beeps are off now!
