afaik, only the wall beeps (and everytime i reboot the machine because it calls this wall

I have checked gnome-volume-control, alsamixer and alsamixergui, i only have a master control there controled by pulseaudio. Terminal bell is disabled in all terminals i use (gnome-terminal and tilda)

if it helps, when i connect headphones, it sounds via the headphones (so i assume is not the pc spkr, even when the kernel module was blacklisted :))

This is the info of my system gathered via alsa-info.sh as well, in case it can help to pin down the culprit

Thanks for the answers :)
