HOW-TO Disable Annoying System Beep

Here's how to stop that ruddy system beep every time the computer boots up.
As it 'appens, there are several solutions for Ubuntu users, depending on your setup, so I'll list the lot and one should work for your PC.

System > Preferences > Sound > uncheck "Play alert sounds"
You can try a reboot now .. but. Disabling the PC speaker, in favor of using external speakers, can be more tricky.
Try by opening:-
1.sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
.. and appending the lines:-
1.blacklist pcspkr
2.blacklist snd_pcsp
Reboot your Ubuntu PC.
If that doesn't cut it, open:-
1.sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
.. and add the lines:-
1.blacklist pcspkr
2.blacklist snd_pcsp
Reboot the box.
And if that doesn't work, as it didn't for me and you can't be arsed be mess around anymore, try:-
Opening the PC case and ripping out the bloody speaker wires.
