Open up your computer and find the wire that connects your PC speaker to the motherboard and unplug it. I did that at work after I accidentally wrote an infinite loop in assembler that caused the PC to beep up a storm

Oh,first thanks for you answer .I've been considered
that way ,but i've no privilege to open the box ,so
i want to find a 'soft' way to shot it .I think there
may be a moudle which could control the speaker if we
can find the moudle and umount it ?

Try looking at this site:
http://kmandla.wordpress.com/2007/09...ur-pc-speaker/

There are a couple different methods of trying to mute the pc speaker. Be sure to read the comments on the page too; some other users posted different methods other than blacklisting the pc speaker.

These are the methods I use. Put this in your ~/.bashrc
Code:
# turn off the system bell
xset b off >& /dev/null      # for killing the bell in X
setterm -blength 0           # for killing the bell in a tty
