beeping motherboard



I have installed Windows XP, it's going great, but it has one annoying issue that I am not sure what it's caused by, or how to fix.

Basically whenever I adjust my sound level or whenever I get an email my motherboard beeps as if to tell me etc (and quite loud)'s almost like it wants to put the sound there rather than the Soundblaster soundcard installed and shown as working.

Does anyone have any knowledge of this problem, and how to fix it would be really great :p

PS: The onboard motherboard soundcard is disabled, and never caused a problem in Windows 98. The Chipset is VIA technologies on a Soltek Motherboard.

Cheers guys

There should be a "PC Speaker" entry in the volume control part of Control Panel. Or, you could just unplug the PC speaker. :D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
