Annoying BLIP sound

Hello. I've recently noticed a strange sound on most of our work computers. It sounds like a bubble popping like "blip" or "blup." It's not on my home computer, which is updated just as much as the work computers. I notice the sound whenever certain pages or applications come up with advertisements. I think the sound is due to a flash cartoon for the advertisements. I am even using the No Sounds scheme in control panel->Sounds. I still hear the annoying BLIP! I also can't seem to find any audio setting for the flash player. I searched this forum and found a similar problem from someone posted a couple of years ago. No solution was posted. Thanks for any help! and God bless...

Some popup blocker programs have a audable alarm when they have blocked something. There are settings you can change. Try configuring any blockers installed on the computer.

it might be the computers default beep

for: SydBarrett78

before you go through all this
open the volume control in the bottom right corner
and click the volume slider if you hear that "blip"
then continue reading

when i turn off my sounds on my computer
i hear that blip noise through my computers
tiny built in speaker
it does not look like a regular speaker
i think it's on the mother board

to find out if this is your problem go to your

control panel->Sounds and set a sound for the


redo the volume slider test

did you hear the .wav or the blip? if you heard the

.wav then that was the problem

if you heard the blip then i don't know what the
problem is

if you do not want to hear any sound
then you have to make a simple silent .wav sound

you can do this by opening the sound recorder


open the recorder and press the red circle "record
button" in the lower right corner

then press the black square"stop" button
it's next to the record button

do this as fast as you can =record & stop!!!

the faster you do this the smaller the .wav

now you can save this as quiet.wav silent.wav
or what ever you want

save in the c:\windows\media folder so you can find
it in the control panel->Sounds list

open the control panel->Sounds and apply the
new .wav that you just made to the DEFAULT BEEP

it should be on the list

[if you saved it in the c:\windows\media folder]

click apply

now sit back relax and enjoy a nice glass of some
baby lemonade

Hi guys, thanks for the comments and suggestions. The sound is definitely Flash-ad related. It's not the computerized BEEP when clicking the volume slider. It's a watery Blip or Bloop that I hear when flash ads play. Turning off sounds does not stop it. Only the mute button will do that. lol So I just need to know if there is a way to simply disable sound from Flash apps. thanks. and... baby lemonade???

Pretty sure that is caused by popups. If you have a popup blocker installed there should be an option to disable the sound.
