Open your computer, find your PC speaker, should look like a tweeter, most likely attached to your case or CD/Floppy holder, disconnect the cords.

ALSO:
most dosgames have the possibility to "kill" the sound.

Keen : can be done in the config screen.
Others : try hitting the "S" key once, or one of the Funtion keys.
Look for a readme or such ....

Oh, sorry, didn't realize that you still had warrenty. I built mine from scratch and put the pc speaker on a switch, its cheap, but it works.
