Win 2008 TS dialogue box beeps

I upgraded one of my terminal servers from 2003  to 2008, now when logged into remote desktop on the 2008 server any dialogue box that pops up causes a system "beep". It does appear to be controlled by windows, either on the local desktop or the remote side. It does not play thru the speakers but instead comes from the "buzzer" that is internal to the PC. I have muted speakers on the remote desktop as well as locally and have also set it to no sound in the control panel of both.

How can I turn this off?

In the RDC Connection on the client, make sure on the Local Resources tab you change the "Remote Computer Sound" setting to "Do Not Play"

See if that works for you.

Nope, setting it to Do Not Play had no affect. I had a couple of users log out, change the setting and then log back in but it still beeps.

Try running this command from the Windows 2008 Server:
sc config beep start= disabled
then run
net stop beep

It didn't stop the beep when I did it on the 2008 server, but it does stop it when I do it on the XP workstation.

Terrific!  If it happens on multiple machines, you can put those commands into a batch file.

To comment further, the "net stop beep" does work well when you don't want to receive those alert beeps on a PC client but it is no help for a thin client.  We are going to look into disabling the audio in the BIOS for the virtualized server causing the beeps.

Just wanted to speak for those still receiving the beeping in an environment with PCs and TCs.

We were able to resolve the issue on our end by utilizing Task Manager.  In Server Manager, expand Configuraiton.  Expand Task Sheduler, Microsoft, Windows, Multimedia.  In here you'll find SystemSoundsService.  We have set this to "Disabled" and the trigger as "At log on of any user."  Our 50+ clients are very happy now.  Especially the ones with the pesky thin clients that have one loud speaker and no volume control!

Thanks to everyone above for the help.
