PC Beeps not working with HDA Intel module

Dear all,

The problem is on a computer with an HDA Intel sound card, Intel G45
DEVCTG chip and appears will all version s of the kernel.

Running e.g.
beep 440
produces a beep whose audible frequency is very low, definitely not 440

However, it is worth notiing that grub is able to produce a beep of the
right frequency at boot time.

Can this problem be fixed ?

Should you need any additional bit of information or testing, please ask.

Many thanks in advance for your help,
