If you find the System Beep to be annoying (and let’s face it, it is!), you can disable it with a simple terminal command and be system beep free.

1. Open a terminal window.

2. Execute the following command in your terminal window:sudo rmmod pcspkr

3. Close your terminal window.

Enjoy the absence of the system beep.

If you need to enable the system beep, execute the following command in a terminal window:sudo modprobe pcspk
