Posted here guys because I could not find Intel section - hope OK.
My question is - where can I find the speaker connection on this board? I have enclosed a link to Intel site hoping someone can see what I failed to see! Intel D955XBK picture
My case is the Lian-Li PC 6077 and it has a speaker in the case with a 4 socket female connection with two wire connections (red and black) each wire at presumably pins 1 and 4. However, I have looked hard with magnifier! and can still not find a suitable male connector marked "speaker".
I realise the board has onboard audio, but being new to this am not sure whether by definition it means it does not require a speaker.
Very grateful for your help on this please. Many thanks.
perhaps the board has an integrated/onboard pizo speaker - boot the system up without any ram and see if you can hear it beep.
speaker is not really needed anyhow - only used for diagnostics.
Thanks for that "Apache_lives". Understood. However, because I have just installed (all rather nervously!!) my Processor, Memory and so on, I will probably not take out that RAM, but thanks for the tip though.
I am heartened by your comments about the fact that it is not really needed anyhow - so I will forget about it and leave the lead where it is, in the case.
Appreciate your prompt response.
Just found ONE reference only in the Product Guide book to the speaker. It states - "A speaker is mounted on the desktop board. The speaker provides audible error code (beep code) information during the Power-On Self_Test (POST)". is this what is meant by your reference above to "pizo speaker" please?
heres a pic with a pizo speaker (its just above the ide port and to the right of the bios - its black with a hole in the center and as tall as the ide port its self.
Thank you very much for that. It was the answer I needed and I have now found the speaker on my motherboard on closer examination. Here is a link to a small Freewebs site where I put up a few bits and pieces in an effort to learn about websites!! A beginner in all things you will see.
I have put an image there for you to look at which if you click and then choose Full Size will let you have a clearer photo. Tried to make the file as small as possible for the server there and not take up too much space.
Just so you know, although that board has a built in speaker, normally the connections for case speakers are found on the power and/or case header. This is where you connect all your case lights, case switches etc. There are usually two pins reserved just for that function on that header.
