Annoying beep when pressing multiple keys like FGH or shift

Published by:

Press and hold the F, G, and H keys together at the same time. You should hear a beep. Is it the same beep you’re complaining about?

To turn it off:

Right click My Computer
Hardware Tab
Device Manager
View button at the top
Show Hidden Devices
Non-Plug and Play Drivers

Right Click “Beep” and hit “Disable.”

Restart your computer, and it should go away. Try the FGH thing again.

result: (the video jumps to 20 SECONDS immediately)
