System sound interferes with music & video playback

Product Name: Envy20 All-In-One
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How do I turn off my system sounds?

 

I hear a ding during music playback and no other program or browser is open it is very annoying!

 

I am running Windows 10, on a Wireless Connection, no error messages, no recent software or driver changes that I'm aware of.

Re: System sound interferes with music & video playback

Hello HvnBnd

 

What program are you using to play music with?

 

With Windows 10, System Notifications for various programs and the Action Center News Feeds can make those dings you hear also.

Have you went into the Action Center and turned those off? Its not an HP setting, but a Windows issue.

I'll point you  to a detailed tutorial from the HowToGeek explaining how to disable them.

For the news feeds, as per the tutorial above, go to the Action Center> System> Notifications & actions and scroll down to Audio On: Banners, Sounds and click on it.

When the new window opens, turn off - Play a sound when a notification arrives.

 

Let me know if this fixes the problem.

If not, if you can give me more details as to what you are doing or using when it happens, it will help.

Re: System sound interferes with music & video playback

I am running iTunes.

 

No, this didnot solve my issue.

 

I have made sure that ALL notifications are turned completely off and I'm still getting the same sound. I'm going to post the same thing to the Windows 10 Forum. Thanks for your help.
