I don't think there's a setting to turn on or to turn off the sound. If you've installed any additional software for keyboard, then I can't tell since you didn't mention anything except the keyboard sound. It would be helpful if at least you did mention the Operating system installed on your computer. First try with an external keyboard and check if it makes the clicking sound or not. There are many reasons, but most of all, it's related to motherboard. If you need further help from me, let me know with more details like the installed O.S, and the Laptop model and make.

If the system/laptop is under warranty, you better call them and let them check before you start working with it. Otherwise it'll void.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

  • Notebook key presses are slow to respond
    If there is a short delay from the time a key is pressed to the time the character displays on the screen, the Filter Keys function might be activated.

    1. Click Start , and type keyboard in the Search box. Then click Change how your keyboard works under Control Panel.

    Wrong characters appear when typing, changing keyboard language, or Dvorak

    1. Click Start , and type region into the Search field. Click Region and Language from the search results.

    5. From the Text Services and Input Languages page, select the new keyboard in the list and click Move up until it is first in the list. This makes it the default keyboard.
    6. Click OK. You can now use the new keyboard.
      If you find that the new keyboard service works correctly and you do not want to use the other keyboard, repeat these steps and Remove the keyboard service that you do not need.
