    Stop Beep at Startup

    When booting my computer it always makes a beep sound right as the bios is loading. I disasbled the internal speaker through windows but has no effect. How can I disable this beeping at boot? Is there a jumper somewhere on the motherboard?My PC is exactly like this one.




    Thanks!

    why not enable the internal speaker, and either physically remove it, or put a piece of tape over it?

    Some motherboards just don't have a setting to turn off the beep at boot. If there's not a setting in the BIOS/UEFI, then there's nothing you can do about it, unfortunately.

    Oh, and your link doesn't appear to work - it just takes me to the main ebay page. Posting a link to the actual manufacturer and model specific page would be better.

    Yeah, it's the correct link something with mp3car doesn't let it go through... don't like eBay I guess. Manufacturer page:

    You should contact the manufacturer to see if it's possible.

    Random thought:

    It’s usually a small piezo sounder/speaker on the MB, some are just plugged in, unplug or put a bit of tape over the front of it and reduce output by up to 80%.

    I don't think the speaker itself can be removed. Looking through BIOS I didn't see much that stuck out to me. I'll contact Migrus and see if they can shed any light on the issue. Other than that I'll try the tape suggestion. Just one of those annoying little aspects of the build.

    It’s a tiny round black thing with a hole in the middle; usually around ” dia. If it unplugs it will be attached to a lead.
    These days most are permanently mounted on the MB. Cover the hole if you find it.

    It's definitely soldered to the motherboard. Just contacted Migrus will see how quickly they respond!

    I used a drill bit on the one in my car- Just destroy the little piece of metal in it and it'll be quiet for ever. Of course that's a rather violent (and satisfying) way to deal with a beep that won't stop...
