Very Loud Beep on my Dell Inspiron

The Story

Some days during my lunch break my Dell Inspiron 9400 makes very loud noise. Normally this happens during my lunch break or when using another computer.

And this is not a very nice beep. It sounded like the beeps my old computer made when there were no sound cards. Only a lot louder.

Disabling the speaker and so did not help. Also changing the sound settings. etc. etc.

The Cause

Google Desktop, that is indexing PDF files.

The Solution

Actually two solutions for this:

  1. Disable the "Beep" device. Go to the device manager and select View/Show Hidden devices, and then you can find it under the non-plug and play devices.
  2. Do not allow Google Desktop to index PDF files.
