Every time I type something, say in Nautilus's directory box, or a text box, I hold backspace a lot. What ends up happening is that if I've already deleted every character, this loud annoying beep noise is made. How do I stop that?

Go into system -> preferences -> sound and deselect "enable system beep" from the system beep tab

You can disable this by editing a file and entering two simple lines.

gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

And then add:

#silly speaker beep
blacklist pcspkr

Save your file and the speaker beep will be gone when you reboot.
If you don’t want to wait until a reboot, simply type:

sudo rmmod pcspkr
