Internal Speaker

Description ...

Alternatively referred to as a PC speaker, onboard speaker, and system speaker, the internal speaker is a basic speaker on a motherboard that creates beeps, beeping noises, and mono tones. This speaker is very basic and is not a speaker for playing songs, music, or other complex sounds generated in a game Back before sound cards, computers could only produce sound from a tinny-sounding speaker embedded deep within the computer’s case. However, they also served another purpose, which is why most computers still come with small speakers on the motherboard. We take the rich sound that comes out of our computers for granted today because many people have forgotten that sound cards were not always available in the earlier days of home computing. Today, Sound Blasters, surround sound speakers, and other hardware give us a richer, more enjoyable multimedia computing experience. Before sound cards, most computers shipped with small speakers either inside the case or connected directly to the motherboard. Since those speakers also served as a troubleshooting and diagnostic tool, they remain as standard equipment even in contemporary computers. Learn about what a motherboard speaker is used for in modern computing. The PC speaker is generally the first output device to be activated during the boot process of an IBM-PC derived computer. Since it is active before the graphics card, it can be used to communicate error codes related to problems that prevent the much more complex initialization of the graphics card to take place. For example the Video BIOS usually cannot activate a graphics card unless working RAM memory is present in the system, while beeping the speaker is doable with just ROM and the CPU registers. Usually, different error codes will be signaled by specific beeping patterns, such as e.g. "one beep; pause; three beeps; pause; repeat". These patterns are motherboard specific and are usually documented in the technical manual of the motherboard.
