The Beep in Windows sound volume slider

By maxgbw26 ·
After adjusting the sound volume with the "slider" beside the clock, there is always an annoying "beep".
How can I remove that noise?

Mute all before you adjust the volume

and then remove the mute.

Not sure why this is a problem, I personally have no sound on my computer until I decide to use a device or an application, the volume is set to max and I use either the device or application to adjust the volume.

For me it is a problem, very irritating.The beep does not come out the speakers, but from the pc.

In fact I've just muted my PC Beep from within the Advanced controls for Audio Properties - and the slider still beeps when I release it.

As far as I am aware the PC motherboard speaker has only ever been for motherboard warnings usually during startup, long before Windows even loads.

He's not alone. Mine does it too.

My sound slider has also issued a PC beep when slid/released and it's done it ever since I built the PC. I know it's probably a driver issue and when the PC was new I tried unsuccessfully to resolve it. But, since then I've never taken the time to track it down. It just hasn't been important to me because I rarely use the slider. I use the volume control on the speakers. I don't care if the slider beeps (PC) or bongs (sound)!

I suppose there's probably some common element involved. If it helps, I'm using a Creative SBLive PCI512 (Legacy). The sound isn't built in on the MB. Yes, it's old. Some day, when I get the time, I'll build a new one! You know how it goes. The Cobbler's children have no shoes.

Windows makes a sound, which might be too loud, then you adjust again and it might be too quiet, etc etc ad nauseum.

Why not do away with the slider altogether - and replace it with a "I Feel Lucky Today" button!

never plug the speakers, headphones and Mic/headphone unless I want to use them!

I can't see how I can have a skype/headphones/speaker conversation at the same time.

Maybe if the caller is a pain I could plug the speakers in at a low volume and plead ignorance!

You need a 'Break-out Box'...

If nothing else it will prevent wear and tear on your speaker and microphone sockets on your mobo.

Easier to keep everything connected and just switch between them as and when needed.
