Stop annoying system beeps in XP



June 2nd, 2005

I hate that annoying tinny system beep that the PC emits occasionally and I like to stop it altogether, You might like to do the same.

Here's how:

  1. Start - Run, then type Regedit
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound
  3. Edit/create the string value called Beeps. Set it to decimal 0 to disable the sound (or 1 to enable sounds)
  4. Reboot
