re: windows default beep when it shouldn't be happen

This is on a Dell Inspiron 15-3541 laptop OS Win 7 Home 32bit. I am getting the Win default beep in games, other prog's and other places on the desktop that it don't belong. I don't know how to fix this.

Have you checked to see if there any yellow triangles in the Device Manager [Start => Control Panel => Device Manager => Expand ALL nodes]?

It comes through the sound card along with the normal game sounds.

Samuria, The random beeping sound is Windows "default beep". I have no idea what the win "default beep is for. And the beep sounds randomly in games, typing notes and so on. Through the powered/amplified speakers. The amplifier has a headphone jack and an aux audio jack. the beeping sound is not the sys beeps when the laptop can't boot up and the screen is dead. These beeps are coming from Win OS via the sound card.

Go to Control Panel>Sound>Sounds tab. Go through each event till you find the one (or ones) with the default beep. Change the sound to "None."

re: windows default beep when it shouldn't be happen

I know witch windows sound it is. It is labeled "default beep". I have tested it by changing the" default beep" to none. That stops the problem in the short term. But it doesn't address the problem in the long term. The "default beep" shouldn't be randomly beeping when it isn't spouse to. I think wiping the C: drive partition and reinstalling Windows is the only answer. I am going to have to wipe the partition and reinstall ether Win7 in 64bit or Win 10 in 64bit (my OS right now is Win7 Home 32bit). There is a game that I payed for online and downloaded. The factory says that the game won't work on 32bit, only 64bit. I have a dilemma. Some slightly older (sound card driven) Ham Radio digital decoding prog's won't work in 64bit. There is only 1 choice that I can make. Put the Ham Radio prog's on the 2nd laptop that I have, a Sony VGN-NS110E, also OS Win 7 Home 32bit. The Sony laptop is a few years older then my Dell laptop. But it still works great. The only thing that I don't like about the Sony laptop is I have to take the top cover of the laptop completely off to get at the HDD.

No need to wipe and reinstall. The beep might come back.
You can remove the beep entirely
In My Computer, go to C:\windows\Media

Test the likely suspects until you get "beep," close whatever player you're using, then delete that file. The system will ask for permission, and say "yes."It's one of the few system files that you're allowed to touch, aside from your wallpapers. I've even thrown in a few of my own sounds into that folder.
DON"T TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE IN THE FILING SYSTEM.
Close My Computer.

RoWin7 I have to wipe and reinstall in order to change from 32bit to 64bit anyways or the money that I spent on buying the game "Postal Redux" will be wasted. Weather the random beeps comes back, who knows. At lease with the Windows "default beep" set to none (no sound). There hasn't been anymore random beeps.
I have a feeling the random beeps mite be a benign virus like the "stone virus". All the stone virus does is flash on the computer screen "your computer is stoned" at random times. It is just an annoying type of virus.

PS: I have in the past changed all of the Win default sounds for a Star Trek set of sounds.
