Solved!

Power-on beep sound disable

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360 13-4190nd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to disable the startup beep sound of my Notebook. I understand that Beep sounds are needed when something is wrong in the startup, but when everything is working properly, can I disable the beep anywhere in the Bios?

I have a American Megatrends bios, version F.50

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

have you set a Power on password in BIOS. This is most likely why the beep is occuring. Please take a look at this thread and see if it helps:

 

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Spectre-x360-BIOS-password-bee...

 

Especially this part 

 

"-Provides the ability to enable or disable the audible password prompt (beep) for the BIOS administrator login or Power-On Password. The audible prompt is disabled when the Power On Self-Test (POST) Hotkey Delay setting is set to 0"

 

Hope it helps,

David

Indeed, I had set a power-on password. The solution you gave, "the Power On Self-Test (POST) Hotkey Delay setting is set to 0" worked immediately,  with one remark: By default, this delay was already set to 0, and the audible beep disappeared only after I set the delay again to 0.

 

Thanks
