Filed in mac Leave a comment

i recently jus migrate over to mac. apple is more healthy than anything else.

but then there is this thing tat is very irritating, the loud startup sound. that u cannot really switch off, it still jus blast away even when you earpiece is plugged in, so did a goggle search and found this cool website which have a plug-in to system preference which will do just the job!

you can switch off the startup sound, or adjust the volume to way max of too soft. or u can even mute it, which is very much the same as disabling the startup sound.

How To: Fix ThinkPad Keyboard Beep

Filed in hardware | thinkpad 10 Comments

okie, first post, i jus formatted my thinkpad t60. and the first thing that was totally irritating is the beeping sound whenever 3 or more keys are pressed.

so here’s how you can disable it.

1. Open the Device Manager. You can do this from My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager.

2. Show Hidden Devices. You can do this from View -> Show hidden devices.
Okie, this part is quite important, cos if u miss this step, u cannot really proceed further.

3. Under Non-Plug and Play Drivers, open the properties for Beep. Go to Driver -> Stop, and the beeping will cease.
You can also Disable the device from starting up by Selecting Disabled in the startup type dropdown list.
