Very loud and annoying system beeps on startup/shutdown

Postby charch on Thu Jan 17, 2013 9:22 am

I just installed Linux Mint Debian Edition on my laptop last night and on boot up and shut down I receive very loud system beeps from the internal speaker. I tried black list the speaker by creating a file "/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf" with the lines:

Code: Select all
blacklist pcspkr
blacklist snd_pcsp

This did nothing to solve my problem. I need to shut this off because I have to use my laptop for university in a few hours and can't have it beeping throughout the lecture... :S

Thanks in advance for any help :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hehe, are you turning your computer on and off throughout the lecture?

System beeps can oftentimes be disabled altogether with a BIOS option. It's certainly worth checking.
