Turn Off Volume Control Beeping Sound in Windows 7

This article will explain how to turn off the very annoying beeping sound every time the volume is turned up or down on a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A505 laptop with Windows 7 installed. Ever since I bought my laptop there is a very annoying beeping sound every time I turn the volume up or down. It is really loud and high pitched.

I finally figured out how to turn it off:

  • Right click on the speaker icon in your bottom-right toolbar and click sounds.
  • In the “Sound” window, select the playback tab, right click on the speaker icon and click properties.
  • In the “Speakers Properties” window, select the levels tab and turn the volume for the PC Beep section all the way down.
  • You computer should no longer beep when changing the volume!
