Thanks for the link. I just have figured out the reason why Beep[]
command did not produce any sound on my Windows 2000 installation of
Mathematica 7. It is because the system registry parameter "Beep" was
set to "No" in the following registry key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound]

Setting it to "Yes" makes Beep[] command working (after restarting
Windows). I still consider this as a fault because I expect
Mathematica do not depend on OS-specific undocumented settings.
