Windows 7: Mouse Keys still playing sound when turned on/off

It took a while for this to bubble up. You might have tried this, but please check.

I recalled how things are not exactly intuitive in
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Ease of Access Center\ (accessibility in Win7 ?)

Look in Make the keyboard easier to use and see how Turn on toggle keys is configured.
- If it is ticked, try clearing it ... if it is NOT ticked, try selecting it.

I'm not sure if a restart is required to make it stick. Toggle it and restart.

Also look in Setup Filter keys
- scroll down and near the bottom should be a check box that controls Beep when keys are pressed or accepted

It's all coming back - sort of

You can leave Beep in DevMgr disabled or put it back the way it was since that wasn't the solution.

- I don't think it's important and ran my Vista or Win7 system without it.

I had tried what you suggested. I looked under Make the keyboard easier to use and the Turn on toggle keys setting was turned off. I turned this on, no restart was required. I also looked in Setup Filter Keys and I had to clear the box lebeled Beep when keys are pressed or accepted.

After I did all this and selected the Apply button, I tested the Num Lock. It still produced the beep. I had turned off toggle keys again, still a beep. I think there is some setting that is making it where the settings that normally would turn sound on/off are being bypassed.

I'll think about it some more, maybe another idea will percolate up from the recesses.

Sometimes a solution eludes us because of a sequence or combination.

settings before changes
settings after changes
the only combination that remains is
You say that no restart was required - did you restart the machine?

There might not have been a message, but the change might not take effect until a restart.
Please restart the machine.

Mouse acceleration turned off only for the mouse, not the touch pad
Sorry for the long tittle. Is it possible to turn the mouse acceleration on only when using the touchpad on my laptop and off when I'm using the mouse? I usually don't use the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in if that's any help. If nothing else, maybe a driver will do the trick? Pavel
