Suddenly (or at least I've just noticed it) my 'CPU' speaker can be heard even though I have external speakers 'plugged in' the back and wireless earphones (their controller) plugged into the jack in the front of the machine.
PC hasn't been moved in a year ... it's under desk.
The ext speakers work correctly (and the earphones) but I havn't heard the internal speaker before.
Is this normal (not my hearing ... the int speaker beeps)?
I've been contemplating 'packing' the internal speaker with cotton to reduce the sound (or disconnecting the speake) ... my PC is in our family room and I don't want to disturb others with all the beeping.
PC is a DELL 4300 1.6G Dimension (circa 2001) with 256M (soon to be 512M ... have birthday coming up), an int HD of 20G and a 2nd HD of 120G. Also 2 CD's.
