If you want to turn off the beep that sounds when you turn on a virtual machine, you can run the following two commands. The first stops the BEEP service and the second disables it on subsequent reboots.

At a command prompt:

net stop beep
sc config beep start= disabled

(Be sure to include a space after the = sign.)
