Breadboarded build will not post - speaker problems?

Right now I have a breadboarded setup that doesn't post and I am not getting speaker feedback from.

msi 970a-g45 motherboard
AMD FX-6100 cpu with Zalman CPNS 9900 cooler

I had it fully assembled and it didn't post, so I reduced it to this setup to use the speaker to see if I could find a problem. When I turn it on the fan lights and spins up then runs at full speed. The board lights up to show the cpu is in 1 phase power mode. However, the speaker never makes a sound. I'm sure that the cpu and motherboard power connectors are securely attached, and that the speaker is connected in the proper orientation.

Is there an easy way to test if a speaker works? What does it mean if the speaker works but the board isn't outputting any codes?


Thanks in advance for the help.

what is the board sitting on? It must be completely non-conductive .

also try removing all the hardware and adding one item at a time .

It's sitting on cardboard.

I have gone through the thread and am at the point where I should be adding components one at a time and using the beeps to figure out if there is a problem with components, but my motherboard speaker is not working.

I'm hitting this same issue first I submitted a RMA for the board. Hit the same issue after getting the new boards. It posts with my Phenom II x6 1100T 3.30 GHz. So I RMA the processor and hit the same issue again. Phase 1 power only, id say it wasn't compatible but they sell the mobo proc combo in kits left and right....

I did eventually figure out the problem. It's likely that the board doesn't have the most recent bios, and you need to flash the BIOS to 1.2 to get AM3+ support (for you that should be easy because you have already gotten it to post with a different cpu).

That was it :)  as soon as I installed windows I ran a live update flashed the bios on both and successfully posted with the fx-6100. Newegg shipped me motherboards with 1.0 on it when it needs 1.2.
