Could you please ask or explain your question differently? At least, I do not understand what you are asking.

Sounds like a beep as the pc itself is loading. Go into your BIOS, change from quick boot to Full POST and see what it needs.

If this has just started recently, it is probably a problem with the system, and check the beep against the diagnostic codes for your BIOS.

If it is just a single beep, that is normal. If, for some reason, you want to turn the single beep off, disconnect the power lead to your system speaker. It (the speaker) will be inside the case, usually against the front bezel. I don't suggest doing this, because then if you ever really do have a problem you won't have your diagnostic beep codes to help you, but if you have to stop the beeping it will work.

No - check your mobo manual or contact the manufacturer. I think the beep is either on or off - you could try muffling the speaker if you don't want to disconnect it.

And really, this is neither a Slackware nor a Linux question.

Maybe a mod could move it....?

You can change the pitch of the hardware beep, but i dont think you can change it's volume. If it's really annoying just cut one of the wires connected to the hardware speaker. (there should be two, either one is fine) and then you can strip them and reconnect them if you need, although killing the hardware bell is a very bad idea...

Hello pixelV

The direct approach would be to simply connect a variable resistor in series with the speaker. You could also simply pull the connector off the motherboard, there is no need to cut anything. Look at where the LEDs connect to your motherboard.

XavierP, perhaps pixelV was told that if nobody else has a solution, ask a Slackware user =-].
