    Hi all,

    Acer 7740g, Windows 7 HE.
    I have this annoying problem that when my AC power is plugged or unplugged it makes a beep.
    Muting the sound completely helps, but that's sometimes not an option.

    I tried the following and no luck:

    Editing a registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound\Beep and changed it to "No".
    Uninstalling the Beep device from my device manager.
    Turning off my pc speaker, unfortunately, I didn't find where I can disable it.

    My sound card drivers are: Realtek 6.0.1.5969

    Anyone has another idea?

    Thanks.

    try control panel sounds save current sound scheme somewhere you can find it then alter scheme to no sounds or no sounds when connecting etc etc

    or you can always set it to mute

    Tried. No sounds theme doesn't solve it.

    Can always set to mute what? the whole system? As I said, it's not always an option.

    Thanks for that.

    But well, I tried to do that and for some reason I don't have the PC Speaker in Levels.

    I have other stuff, such as: Microphone, Line In, Center, Subwoofer and etc..

    Actually I have noticed the opposite.
    in my previous Windows 7 I didn't have the full Realtec management and there I could mute the pc speaker, but now I do with much more option, except the one I need with the PC speaker.

    so now the question is, if anyone knows how to disable PC Speaker, when you have Realtec full drivers installed.. maybe registry somehow?
