Dell 3700 "beeps" when typing

My Dell 3700 now emits "beeps" when I type on it.  Not sure when this
started, but
fairly recently.

I have gone into Control Panels > Accessibility and there is nothing
about keyboard beeps.
I have checked the Keyboard control panel and nothing about beeps.

It is making me nuts!

Anyone have any suggestions where to look next?

Visit Dells web site


To disable Keyboard Click, perform the following:

Press [FN] + [F1] to enter the Setup program.
Press [ALT] + [P] (both at the same time) to go to the second page.
Highlight Keyboard Click: and press the [Right arrow] key (->) to set
it to Disabled.
Press [ESC] to exit the Setup program.
Now the keyboard will not emit a beep tone when you type.

This will work on inspirion systems, if this doesn't work. Follow this

Wow!  It worked!  I never would have thought to look there!  Many
thanks for the tip.  I can't imagine how the beeps got turned on...    
I recedntly had the hard disk fail, so replaced it, and reinstalled the
system and all my apps.  Don't know why that would turn on the beeps,

Thanks again...   It was driving me nuts!
