After the evaluation of a cell Mathematica emits a sounds: how can I remove it?

If needed, I use v.10 on a Windows 8.1 64 bits machine.

  • $\begingroup$ @Pirx So this means that something is off? This happens even if I calculate 1+1. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, none of the versions of Mma I have used have done this. $\endgroup$

My guess is that you have a non standard EvaluationCompletionAction setting.

CurrentValue[$FrontEnd, EvaluationCompletionAction] = {}

should clear it.

It can have "Beep" value which should behave the way you describe, otoh I'm not able to reproduce it with this option. It may be OS dependent as even documentation says: \

This function has not been fully integrated into the long-term Wolfram Language, and is subject to change.

Alternatively, check values of $Post and friends or other options like CellEpilog.
