Hey, I built a testing setup to check some old SD-RAM bars: - mobo ECS K7S5A - CPU XP 1800+ - VGA Nvidia TNT2 - PSU: some OEM - loose PC speaker connected to mobo to evtl. getting any error beeps Worked fine so far for several RAM tests. But today it didn´t boot nor show any screen, no error beeps. So I figured out that the small PC speaker had a short-circuit ("+" had contact to the speaker body due to a tiny isolation damage of the wire). I disconnected from PSU, cleared the BIOS, took off the battery - didn´t work. Plus took off VGA, then plus RAM, then plus CPU - didn´t work. It´s dead, isn´t it? Btw: Should error beeps (fixed the PC speaker) even appear when ALL components are taken off their place?
