Not the expected POST beep or anything like that.
When I plug in/unplug the power adapter, there is a beeping from the computer.
Now, if I plug in headphones and do this, it beeps through the headphones.

Muting the sound also mutes the beep.

There is no "PC Speaker" setting for me to mute.
There isn't the Non-PnP devices in the Device Manager to disable the "Beep" device.
I've gone through all of my Window's sounds. No change.

I've had a few Gateway support chats and they told me to either mute the aforementioned PC Speaker or to disable the speaker in the BIOS.
Checked the BIOS and there's no option.

Anyone have this problem? Anyone know what I can do to solve this?

If you haven't solved this yet. You could try locating the sound being played and delete the sound file located C:\Windows\Media
