[Tutor] No beep from winsound.Beep(500, 500)

My laptop, a Toshiba Satellite running Python 3.1 and Vista 64-bit
SP2, with the speakers on and otherwise working, won't give me a beep:

>>> from winsound import Beep
>>> Beep(500, 500)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module>
    Beep(500, 500)
RuntimeError: Failed to beep

Please give me some hints as to what I can do about this.
