Hi @PennyM1,

 

Welcome to HP Support Community.  


Thank you for posting your query, I will be glad to help you.

 

To turn off key clicks or keyboard sounds on your Omen 17 laptop, you can follow these steps.

 

Using the Windows Sound Settings

 

a. Right-click on the speaker icon in the Windows taskbar (usually located in the lower right corner of your screen) and select "Open Sound settings." 

b. Under "Advanced sound options," click on "App volume and device preferences." 

c. Find the application or program that corresponds to your keyboard sounds (usually, it's the "System Sounds" or "Default" option). 

d. Use the drop-down menu to set the output to "Mute" or lower the volume to zero.

 

Using the Windows Control Panel

 

a. Open the Control Panel on your computer. You can search for "Control Panel" in the Windows search bar to find it. 

b. Click on "Hardware and Sound." 

c. Under the "Sound" section, click on "Change system sounds." 

d. In the Sound window, under the "Sounds" tab, scroll down to find "Default Beep." 

e. Select "Default Beep," and in the "Sounds" dropdown menu, choose "None" from the list of sounds. 

f. Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save your changes.

 

Using HP Omen Control (if available): Some HP Omen laptops come with a pre-installed utility called "HP Omen Control" that allows you to customize various settings, including keyboard backlight and sound. Check if your laptop has this utility and if it allows you to disable keyboard sounds.

Check BIOS/UEFI Settings: In some cases, you might be able to disable keyboard sounds in your laptop's BIOS/UEFI settings. To access these settings, restart your laptop and press the necessary key (usually Del, F2, or another key) during boot to enter the BIOS/UEFI setup. Look for any keyboard sound options and disable them if available.

Update Drivers: Sometimes, keyboard sound settings can be controlled by keyboard driver software. Ensure that your keyboard drivers are up to date, as a driver update might provide an option to disable keyboard sounds.

 

I hope this helps. 
 

Take care and have a good day.

Hello Alden,

Thank you for the suggestions for how to turn off the key clicks on my new Omen 17. I have tried your first two suggestions three times, but these have not turned off the clicks. After re-start they don't seem to have made any difference.  I don't have Omen Control installed, so I can't try it. I will try to find where I can install it from and give it a go. I don't want to try the BIOS suggestion as it looks too complicated.

I feel very frustrated, as I can't believe its so difficult to do this simple set up. The key clicks are so annoying and make me wonder if I want this laptop, as I won't be able to cope with the noise much longer.

Any other suggestions.
