Motherboard didn't come with speaker

tomi1

My ASUS H81M-A motherboard didn't come with the little internal speaker that makes beeps for POST and such.

 

I have an old pc collecting dust which does have this speaker. This may sound like a stupid question but can I just take that speaker out and plug it in on my PC? The old motherboard has 3 pins and the new one has 4, but the speaker only has 2 cables, 1 (+) and 1 (-)

 

In my MB manual it says one is +5V, 2 are Ground and the other  is Speaker out. So where do I plug in the (+) cable and the (-) ?

 

This is the speaker I've got:

+ to the speaker out and - to ground

If you have the option to get a high refresh rate monitor, do it.

Huh, maybe I'm out of the loop then. Why does it have a speaker connector then? And how do you diagnose POST problems without a speaker?

no only bigger speakers require power. A little speaker that you've got doesn't require anything

THIS IS ONLY A GUESS but going on the board layout this is where I'd plug it in

There should be a little LCD display like a clock radio with 2 digits that can each display something from 0 - F (0, 1, 2, ... 8, 9, A, B ... E, F)

This will be the code, for better or for worse.

If you can read this you're using the wrong theme.  You can change it at the bottom.
