Is it the sound card or the internal speaker that's making the noise.
If it's the card, I think most Dell Dimension's have that kind of problem,
definitely mine does, (solution is to wack up all the line inputs to max,
and turn the master volume right down, or to disable it). Then get a new
sound card :)
If it's the internal speaker, they use intel boards, which have a jumper
(or used to) to select buzzer rather than another cable with a wire to it.
See if you can find that jumper and take it off.
