    Hi,

    Hoping someone will be able to help with a bit of a strange problem I have.

    I need to disable the internal speaker on a Windows 7 PC but keep the audi jack enabled. Once internal speaker is disabled we need to stop users from enabling it.

    Anyone come across anything like this? We want to do this by policy, script, regedit. Something we can push out from SCCM or the likes. Initially this is for one Library but I can see them wanting it pushed out to multiple libraries.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Fraser

    I assume the library computer is a desktop and not a laptop. If no speakers are attached, there is no sound.

    In addition, open regedit
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Audiosrv
    click on Start and change the Dword value from 2 to 4.
    This changes the audio service from automatic to disabled. That would also result in no sound coming through a headphone plugged into the audio port.

    I think he is referring to the internal audio speaker that some business PC's have, not the beep speaker but like external speakers but placed inside the PC. I don't think you can disable it via software though, never seen the option. Can't recall seeing even a setting in the BIOS/UEFI either. You might just need to go around and physically disconnect it.
