The MBs speaker header, again I suggest that the MB user manual is read.

 

Can I ask if that by chance you are charging a fee for repairing computers for other people.

Thanks for the confirmation  :thumbsup:

 

Any luck with obtaining the speaker yet.

 

Have you checked the MBs other troubleshooting features

The speaker should be here first thing next week, I ordered it from Newegg since the local Comp USA (aka TigerDirect) doesn't carry it.  And no I haven't tried anything since.  Just waiting for the speaker currently.

No problem, we will be here when you are ready  :thumbsup:

 

NB: Don't leave the speaker connected to the MB when you are done testing, keep it somewhere safe for any future troubleshooting tasks that may head your way.

Alright, so it made absolutely no beeping noises when I powered it up....    :no:

 

I made sure it wasn't plugged in upside down (tried it both ways, just in case) and still nothing.

Did you try removing both sticks of Ram to see if you get any error beeps, if yes then the problem is before the Ram is tested as part of the POST, the PSU and the MB are the two main suspects in this instance.

I'll try that when I get home. If I don't then I suppose I should try 1 stick at a time?

If you get no beeps with both sticks of Ram removed then trying one at a time will normally make no difference I'm afraid - but you never know as stranger things have happened.

Doesn't look promising I'm afraid  :(

 

Was the speaker from a reputable source, do you have another system that you can check the speaker on.

 

Trying a known good PSU is the only other suggestion that I have, if still no joy with a known good PSU then it basically proves the MB is bad.

It was from Newegg, I suppose I could shut down my rig and try it to make sure it works?  I'll do that momentarily (it should give SOME form of beep on a working rig, correct?).

If the speaker IS working correctly (and I kinda figure it is) then the next step will be troubleshooting by purchasing components sadly.  I don't have a spare PSU and really don't want to take apart my PC just to test his.
