    Try this from the How-To Geek. Scroll down to Disable Beep in Sounds Panel. The article states it is for XP, but it should be the same in Vista and Win 7.

    I just mute my PC. Try right clicking on the volume icon on the task bar and select sounds. This is generally where sounds are set.

    Hold down NUM LOCK key for five or more seconds. Dialog will pop up giving you "Ease of Access Center" acces to settings & options or...
    go directly to "Ease of Access Center" in control panel relating to keyboard function.

    Some brand name computers and or specific hardware will have their own setting properties that may be
    specific to your make and model of computer, those options should be investigated.

    If you are using an Sony Vaio laptop, or maybe other Sony's, the above suggestions will not work, because it is Sony that's introducing the beeps for the Function keys, such as Fn-brightness or Fn-Volume. This is from anotherr forum:

    "Find the file "pi.wav" in your Program Files (x86)\Sony\VAIO Event Service folder and rename the file to anything else (like pi2.wav). Now, when a function key is pushed, the Event Service doesn't know where to find the file for the beep, and it doesn't seem to particularly care either.

    Or, alternately, you could probably move whatever sound you wanted into that folder and rename that file to pi.wav. In this case, it would play your sound whenever you pushed a function key -- although I should mention that I have not tried this myself..."

    This worked for me. Of course, you have to remember what you did if you want to reverse it.
