HP laptop (intel video and X11) running 10.1-REL-p5 and I can't get
the system bell to stop beeping both in X and on the console.

I'm running newcons for the DRM and X11 compatibility. 

I've tried editing /etc/rc.conf:

I've tried:
kbdcontrol -b
kbdcontrol -b off

neither of which work. Any thoughts? Any ideas for tracking it down?
