When I turn on my laptop (an HPdv6700 or something very similar, I can't remember), it'll occasionally start beeping very loudly and incessantly while it boots up. This occurs after the GRUB menu, i.e. once the default Ubuntu OS (8.10) has started to boot. It doesn't seem to interfere with the OS actually starting, and everything else seems fine, I just want to be able to turn off the beeping sound. Any ideas on how to do this? It doesn't seem to be possible in the motherboard's setup menu.
