Exclamation Extremly Annoying beeping noise in Linux Mint


So yeah im new to this Linux stuff but am so excited to join the linux community, when I shut off and stuff I hear this loud beeping noise. I am on a Dell Inspiron E1505 (Maybe a I6400). Linux Mint 7 Gloria

edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

at the end of the file add this:

blacklist pcspkr

and save. you will have to do this as root or sudo

sudo nano -w /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

that should work for you

As root, open the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
and add the following lines... (of course the first one is just a comment). Reboot and heal your ears


Code:
#silly speaker beep
blacklist pcspkr

Ok so I put in the command that librano said, and ignored the other reply, so i tried opening the menu and holding backspace in the search box and... no beeping! Thank you!

sorry for the confusion. sudo -w nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist will just open the file for you to edit. You don't have to do both

nano is just an easy to use editor. the ^ symbol is the control button so ^x will exit the program
