does anyone know how this can be done, without pulling out the speaker from inside my pc??

ive tried hitting delete on startup and looking at bios info but dont really know what to do, i know the headline above is pheonix not sure what that is, my motherboard or if that can give better understanding if it's possible but i want to just disable it, as it is highly annoying

i know the dangers of not being to detect a future problem without it, but i want it to go. is there a way i can disable it while still in windows

any advie/help would be appreciated (btw im on an emachines)

don't know that there's a way to disable that....it's kind of there for a reason...you could poke around in the bios without changing anything and see if you find a setting for it (i've never seen such a thing and i'll be surprised if you do )...only way i know of is to unplug the speaker...why does a single short beep that only happens when the computer turns on bother you that much?

You won't find an option to disable it because its supposed to do that and its done that for the last 20 odd years.

Because you have an eMachines, you may find that pulling the speaker out will disconnect the entire front panel (power button, power button and HDD access light) as they like to wire it in as one complete block to be awkward.

I think you wont be able to disable the Beep as it comes from the speaker attached to the MoBo.

It is very relevent as it indicates that the bios has tested the video sucessfully. Video test is the last test done by post.
