I'm a bit of an ergo freak and recently bought a Kinesis Advantage keyboard. The manual says to press Program+\ but that doesn't stop the keyboard's speaker making that awful noise; in fact it changes nothing :/

Does anyone here have any ideas before I give in and contact Kinesis?

Your secondary question's answer is "yes."… – Kevin Panko Feb 13 '14 at 18:00

Have you remapped your \ key? If so, you have to press the original location of the backslash key for it to work. (Should be between the QWERTY quote and hyphen.)

In the end, I just opened her up and pulled the piezo speaker off with pliers. Works great now.
