How can I make it more quiet, please. New Mesh laptop. Wakes everyone up on the train at 6.30, not a popular man.Have muted the sound, to no avail.Or do I have to live with it( and turn on laptop before I get on)?

My computer does this, I have found no way to stop it happening, just pretend that this is the computers way of saying 'GOOD MORNING'.

"Good morning" Dom Jolly-style, eh?

As it's a laptop I would say you will have to live with it. Unless you fancy taking the laptop apart to remove a wire from the computer speaker, Not the sound Speaker but the one that just gives out the startup post sound.

SO it was you on the train :D

Was on a train and some guy was playing a game that every time he lost he made some really horrible beeps, and i dont think he was good at the game.... either that or he didnt want me to sleep.

Most laptops you cant change the post beep speaker volume.
But try speaking to the manufacturer they might be able to help.
