hi

this sound is either the pcspkr module....which can be blacklisted or

its a sound event....meaning your distro is playing a sound file. Some sound files can be found in /usr/share/sounds

if its a sound file....run commands

Code:
sudo (or su) updatedb
locate *.wav
its likely to be a small one....so play the small ones until you find it...then disable it...chmod 000 /pathway2/file.wav

I had verified that folder, it contains some KDE sounds. But i didn't find that critical error sound file.

then it may be the pcspeaker.....a tiny speaker inside your case that can only beep.

post the output of this command pls...to see if you have it running

Code:
lsmod | grep pcspkr

(my output)
pcspkr                  2396  0
Now I do not use your distro but with root powers you can edit something "like" /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
add a line
blacklist pcspkr

reboot to test.

2) or add a line to /etc/rc.local if you can not find any blacklist file but it needs the full pathway

/sbin/rmmod pcspkr

hey thanks ,it's pc speaker that makes worst sounds.

The commands given by you are not at all working for my OS, I had used GUI way of muting PC speaker.

Personal Settings -> System Bell -> "system bell" volume to "0"
