keyboard sounds.

I have XP Home. Please tell mehow I can switch off the bleeps that the keyboard makes at intervals to alert me to various things. Thanks.

The only things that your keyboard should be alerting you to is the Caps lock/Num lock and scroll lock key when pressed intentionally or by accident.

If this is what you mean then go to control panel/accessibility options/accessibility options again and under the title "Use toggle keys" remove the tick from the box.

accessibility options, keyboard, in mine, Djohn :-)

I have unticked that box, but still get the beep when I close some web pages. Not all though.
Also when I try to activate some accessories, like Media player, and it tells me to install new drivers or whatever the problem may be, comes the loud beep.

Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, Sounds, select which events to give an audio sound, clear those you don't.

Guys, thanks for your help, ... really.

This is the current situation in Sounds and Audio Devices:-

Volume :- No Audio Devices.
Sound :- Windows Default.
Audio :- Greyed out.!!
Voice :- Greyed out.!!
H/Ware :- Devices working properly.


Any idea.?

( ps. Windows Media player does not play either. Currently being displayed on another help thread. )

That's strange. In mine (XP Pro) its as I posted above. If I go via control panel/Printers and other hardware, then it shows the keyboard Icon but no adjustment for the toggle keys. Shows speed and repeat rate only.

geordielad307. Graham ® has pointed you to the right place and this is where you would normally alter them from. Seeing as they are greyed out, have you checked your sound drivers?

Where are the beeps coming from, the tower or the speakers? Is it the same beep you get at startup?

  geordielad307 19:01 18 Nov 2004

Sorry guys, I seem to be giving you the run-around. This is a laptop. The sound is a VERY SHARP beep. Cannot use volume control to reduce it.

They could be low or critical battery alarm beeps. Check in Control Panel, Power Options to change or disable, to prove.

HI Graham, battery is OK, plus plugged to mains. LOL.
