But it is easier (for me) than mucking about with the kernel!Try seeing if you can disable the PC speaker in the BIOS. 'PC speaker' is the beep that existed before sound cards, and might be being mixed without passing through the usual volume control mixer. It shouldn't affect the use of soundcard functions. If you want to test, try holding down a random letter key during boot - normally when the BIOS keyboard buffer overflows it should beep. TheoTried that, but with no luck. Looks as if I shall have to have a go at the kernel. Boohoo.
Doesn't plugging headphones in fix it? It works with my laptop. When it wakes up from suspend it does an unpleasantly loud beep - for no obvious reason - but i've almost always got headphones plugged in, so i don't usually hear it.
