Z77A-G45 PC Beep
« on: 01-June-12, 12:41:27 »

Hello everyone. I have a Z77A-G45 motherboard. I've updated UEFI/BIOS to the latest version and everything works except PC Beep (PC speaker). Can someone help?

One short beep from "PC speaker" while computer starts is missing. PC speaker doesn't work in Windows either. I've checked.

Is the speaker connected to the correct pin header? Tried another speaker?

In the past, some like the beeps, some hated the beeps, some BIOS revisions have the beeps and others don't. Most of the time anymore, I just rely on strictly visuals like the DeBug LED, codes at POST, etc. Maybe someone at MSI Technical can explain the changes between revisions. If they are contacted, please post their response. :-))

 "I never notice but I think mine only beeped on UEFI/BIOS 2.1, I have 2.4 now and no sound."

 Same with my P67, when I had BIOS 1.9 it beeped, with 1.C no beeps. I don't worry about it, I don't need beeps to figure out if or what problems are if any crop up.

I have the same problem with my Z77A-G45; motherboard speaker (accessory) has never worked. I have tried 2 different speakers with the same results. I also re-wired one of the speakers to use the 2 center pins to see if it would work as a "buzzer" - no luck.

Reported problem to MSI Tech Support on 5/24 and their reply was "if the speaker headers on the mb does not work then this indicates problem with the header when your wiring and speaker confirmed in working order".

My concern is that if this is not a BIOS issue or a minor design flaw, it could be an indicator of a more serious problem. And if you simply rely on "visuals", just wait until you power up and have no video.

It's been reported that UEFI/BIOS v2.1 had a beep. To confirm if the header is in fact operational, you might try v2.1 for testing purposes.

Added: Usually, to get some for sure beeps on most boards, attempting a startup with no RAM installed might do it. The only possible problem with the v2.1 test in your situation, is the 3770k CPU was not fully supported until UEFI/BIOS v2.3.

A beep is needed to be able to tell the graphics isn't working? :think:

HU16E,

Wasn't really aiming that comment at you; my point was that a series of beeps could help troubleshoot a no video problem.

And I like your other suggestions. I'll pass on v2.1 since my system might have been shipped with that and I installed the speaker during the build. I might try pulling memory next time I power off. I did notify MSI Support about this thread and they seem to be very good.

Aside from this the only other glitch I have is I can't find how to toggle Bios Protection in v2.4.  Support says

advanced bios feature should contain the bios protection setting
, but I sure can't find it! I know I had to change it to do my first flash.

Will update this thread when support replies.

I too noticed that the short beep went away as I flashed the 2.4 bios. If it's just the ok-beep that's gone it's in order but since no documentation on the subject seems to exist it could just as well be that the beep codes doesn't work at all. No word on the subject?
