Windows 7 - "Default Beep" PC Speaker changed - How to get back to old style???

This is a reverse to other peoples' requests...
I installed Windows 7 on a freshly formatted computer and did an upgrade from Vista on another computer. I experience the same problem on both computers.
I use a program that does not provide sound through the sound card, but instead beeps the PC speaker. It only beeps -- it doesn't do anything else.
The problem is that I need to be able to hear this beep, but the "Default Beep" in Windows 7 was changed to something "less obnoxious", which means that I can barely hear it. I need to be able to hear it.
I set the "Default Beep" sound in Control Panel to "none", but that didn't fix it. How can I make it "obnoxious" (louder) like it was before?
