I am in the process of building a computer system. Some of the parts I have, others are in the mail, and the rest will be purchased tomorrow. One of the items I have already received is my ASUS A8V Deluxe Motherboard which features the ASUS Post Reporter. This small program gives you audible clues, during POST, as to what is happening inside your system. Normal routines are reported and even better...errors are identified. This prevents the user (me) from having to decifer the code (or beeps) provided via most other boards. My question is this: What does the program use for output? My new computer case doesn't have an internal speaker. Do any of you have this or another ASUS board with this feature? If so, I'd love to know if I need to purchase an internal speaker for my system's case, or if the software will use my current sound card and speaker package.
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
