Hiya,
I thought this was the best thread for this topic...
I have an eMachines D620 (don't buy one.) and whenever i plug the power jack in, i get a beep. AS the 'socket' is loose, whenever i'm using it on my lap, it cuts in and out intermittently depending on the angle.
Does anyone know how to disable these beeps? I'm using my laptop for surfing + music at the same time, so I would rather not just mute the speakers.

Well, I would do that, only I have had to send it back 3 times before now because of the same issue. Now the warranty is out, I'm not spending 60 on getting it repaired. It is a very tedious beep that i would like to get rid of anyway.

I google search netted this post
Here is the solution to disable the annoying PC Beep.

However, you will lose the Dolby Home Theater tab (found in 2.48+ drivers) and have a weaker microphone, but you will still have all the Realtek sound effects, microphone enhancements, virtual surround sound, etc. It's your choice if you want to install this driver to disable the PC Beep.

1. Uninstall previous Realtek drivers in "Device Manager".
2. Check "Delete the driver software for this device." then click OK.
3. Download Realtek HD Audio 2.29 Driver download from Guru3D.com.
4. When you extract the Guru3D.com folder. Install the setup.exe file in the Vista_Win7_R229 folder.
5. Restart the computer.

In the sound manager there should be a slider for system beeps with this driver.
