Volume controls

My computer "beep" is much too loud when I have the moniter volume set to hear audio from RealPlayer etc. I have tried to use the volume controls but cant find the right one to set.

You could remove a speaker connector, as there is no way of turning it down. You only need it connected if you are experiencing problems, the wire will be marked on the little plug coming from the front speaker with SP

Boot the system to the BIOS (system setup) . Move down to the section that says 'integrated devices'. Hit enter and look for the speaker. Turn it off and then hit ESC a few times to save and exit.

The above works on Dell PC

"Boot the system to the BIOS (system setup"!!! Pardon, over my head I'm afraid, would you please simplify. I use Packard bell - windows 98 5.5 .

when you start your computer watch the screen for, "To enter Setup Press xxxxx" where xxxxx is the key or key combinations you have to press to get in to cmos setup. There are instructions then on screen how to navigate with the keyboard pressing enter will open a page pressing escape will close a page etc. Hope that helps that's why I suggested to remove the connector

i dont think u can do it from the bios on the packard bell. the only way is to open the pc reset the jumper switch (j36)for the internal speaker or jus disconnect the cable from the speaker.

But if I remove the connecter surely I wont be able to here my RealPlayer etc audio.

Real player should work with your separate PC speakers not the computer one

Just looked at the link, are there different speakers for beep and realp audio then.

Are you talking about the Base system "Beep" as in the sound that comes from where you put in a CD. That big thing where all the componets are stored?

Or are you talking about a beep that comes from the speakers? So your listening to whatever in real player then "Beep". Does that beep come from the speakers?

Or does its come from the base system?

Your system just shouldn't "Beep" maybe once when you first start your computer, but when your in windows and listening via realplayer it shoulnt beep at all.
