Some people (including myself) hate that nasty beep, when it starts to sound, I start to get a headache. Is there a way to remove it? Yes and it's quite easy. Just to the following:

(you can use gedit or any editor of your choice instead of vim)
1. if you want to disable the beep temporarily (until the next startup)
sudo rmmod pcspkr
Go and check, it is gone!!! :D

2. if you want to disable it forever (until you enable it again)
sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
then add this line in the file:
blacklist pcspkr
now save the file and from the next reboot, you won't hear it again.

3. another way to disable it forever (until enabling it again)
sudo vim /etc/inputrc
now, look for the line where it says "set bell-style audible", change it to one of these:
set bell-style visible
#or
set bell-style none
save and reboot and :D it is gone.

Hope this tutorial helped you get free of the annoying beep when you work with system. ;)
