I just noticed a few minutes ago that when I try to close a program and it asks me if I want to save my work before quitting, the message causes the computer to beep. Not any sort of Windows XP sound that I can turn down, but rather an actual beep coming from the tower/hard drive/whatever the big non-monitor thingy is called. I already went to sound settings in Control Panel and tried assigning a sound to any category that seemed like it could apply to the "save before quitting?" message. No dice. Putting the sounds back on the Windows Defaults setting doesn't work either. Anyone know how to fix this?

I'm short on time at the moment, but this seemed informative, let us know if it works!

Thanks, that worked.

I'd still like to find out what caused this problem in the first place so I can still have the beep on for other things.

You would enjoy my job then.

I suppose there is a good reason for having the system beep, but... Microsoft should not have a motherboard beep, when the computer itself has a sound card. That speaker is for computers without sound cards, and errors that prevent the sound driver from working.

Sad thing is I took a computer hardware and OS class so I can take it apart and put it back together, and yet I don't know what it's called.

Come to thing of it I don't even know what the technical term for it would be... Case? Computer?

Though I know the beep is coming from the motherboard.

Both. The "box" is the computer - it doesn't have to have a monitor, keyboatd, etc. to be called a computer. The thing you're actually looking at though is the case/chassis.

Yeah but couldn't computer also refer to the whole thing? The monitor, the case, keyboard, everything?

That's what I think of when I hear the word "computer." I've heard the tower also be called the CPU, which to a degree makes sense, however incorrect it is.
