AMD Adrenalin - Anti Lag - Beeping a lot

Recently I found that my computer started Beeping when I held shift and some other key, while typing text all the time.

It was REALLY REALLY annoying and I really wanted to find what caused it.
Naturally I checked the windows function called Sticky Keys but it was already turned off.

I googled it and it turned out a lot of other users had the same issue.
One of the users found that it was the Anti-Lag feature in the AMD Adrenalin Software.

So I want to provide feedback about how annoying it is to suddenly have a beeping sound when you write texts where you want occasional capital letters and hold shift down.

I also found out that this feature is enabled by default when I install the AMD software.

I suggest that if you do want this feature enabled by default then add an overlay indicator that shows that it is the anti-lag beep that is heard.
Otherwise more and more people will experience this same irritation.

Is this what you mean? I tried uploading a video. This is my PC, the adrenalin driver will randomly play the usb unplug sound, and sometimes I can trigger it by pressing caps lock. Very weird.  Why doesnt AMD make audio drivers optional during installation?


Anti-Lag is disabled by default, unless you have chosen a graphics profile preset (gaming, esport).

Hotkey is Alt-L, 'Shift' key should not affect it.

Thanks for the response.
Ok, so it might have been enabled by choosing the Gaming profile in the guided tutorial at first install, which is basically the same as Enabled by default if you are a gamer.
But thank you for confirming the exact details surrounding what causes this issue.

The issue remains the same.
An annoying beeping is introduced, one that initially is unexplained until the user happens to find help.
Obviously I would not have created this post if this had been clear from the start.

So, I still think it should be changed or improved.
