    Thanks for the info. I guess I was doing more harm then good by unplugging it regularly.

    aoeud, did you get any new info from ACER??

    Yes. I have discovered that they're useless. "It can't be disabled because it is the manufacturer's design." That's really quite frustrating, makes me want to return this, but barring that it's the best laptop for my needs... It wouldn't be so bad except the power cord is designed to slide out with the slightest force; I rarely intentionally unplug it.

    I was just telling my g/f how annoying that is like 5 minutes ago.

    I didn't know it was designed that way, but I guess it makes sense. I would much rather have it stay in all the time. It constantly falls out when I move the my laptop the slightest bit.

    Thanks for the info. It's pretty stupid if you ask me.

    This noise is one of the most annoying noises i have ever heard on a pc. Its very irritating to hear the sound when the cord disconnects suddenly. I dont really need the computer to tell me that the cord fell out as windows will give me a battery warning if battery gets low. Also i am unplugging the computer all the time using it in different areas of the house, and this battery sound really irritates me.

    ALSO we have to small childrens, and they are sleeping close to the living room. VERY nice to wake them up just because the powerchord fell out ?

    Most stupid thing ever i have seen on a notebook.

    ALSO: Battery just stopped charging today, so this computer will be returned.

    Regards

    OMFG i need help with this too!! I just joined this forum for the sole purpose of getting this damn annoying problem solved. I bought an ACER Aspire 5740G laptop yesterday and it's my very first Acer laptop, and i'm already pissed off with the loud beelping sound!!

    I go to university so don't use AC power all the time, and that's what a laptop is suppose to be for anyway, you carry it around and rely on maybe 1 or 2 hours of battery life. Unplugging the AC power is inevitable for me sometimes and it just pisses me off whenever it makes that loud beep, i tried all the options on this topic already, have checked options in ePower Management but found none useful, no options in BIOS has the option to disable beep either, and i have disabled the beep driver itself and it's still BEEPING!! AHH!!

    Solution!

    I have a solution, believe it or not it is the REALTEK AUDIO DRIVERS

    1) Uninstall your audio driver.
    2) Reboot.
    3) Let windows replace them with generic HD audio drivers.
    4) Enjoy never hearing the awful beep again.

    Does doing that not cause a lot of functionality to disappear, such as the SPDIF output etc ?

    Usually it is output via the pc speaker. It usually helps to disable or mute the pc speaker in Windows.
