Tip: Turning off the virtual machine beep


If you want to turn off the beep that sounds when you turn on a virtual machine, you can run the following two commands. The first stops the BEEP service and the second disables it on subsequent reboots.



 net stop beep


sc config beep start= disabled 


(Be sure to include a space after the = sign.)
