Activating System Beep >-> PC Speaker


E

Ed Light

My system beep in windows xp home sp2, slipstreamed, goes to the stereo
speakers instead of the pc speaker. The pc speaker works in a dos window.
I'd like the beep to bypass the sound card and just get the motherboard to
beep the pc speaker.

Reason: I'd like to be alerted without having the speakers on, and without a
beep getting into any recording I'm making.

Hi Ed,

See if this helps:

Fix the Ding.wav File (Line 6)
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

To use the Regedit: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it
and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by
right clicking on the file and selecting Edit.

Thanks - could you tell me what that does before I apply it?

It looks like it may assign system sounds to sound files.

I have all my system sounds turned off except the ding on the system beep,
and I want to turn that off and get a beep from the pc speaker, as in DOS,
where it works.

Kelly hasn't got back to tell what that tweak does, so I haven't tried it.

Doesn't he mean the short (if good!) beep at POST?
No, the system beep, which plays ding.wav, but I want it to beep the pc
speaker, like in DOS.

I have a program I wrote that plays music on the pc speaker and it works in
a dos window.

I have a new windows programming environment, real basic, but for a beep I
get that ding.wav. I want to get the pc speaker. And ditto for Asus
PCProbe's warning beeps.

So I want the system beep to come from the pc speaker.

Otherwise it will get me when I'm recording sound.

The pc speaker beep comes from the bios, not the os, I think.

Trust me and run it.
OK, I did. It gave the system beep a different sound, from the speakers.

I guess windows programs don't use the pc speaker for a beep? Heck. That
must be it.

Sorta but not really. All should be well.
Not really. The system beep comes from the speakers still, not the bios/pc
speaker. But thanks.
