No beeps

I've just built a new PC using the motherboard Novatech L7VTA bought from Noavtech.

It all seems to be working fine except that I hear no start up beep.
I also hear no beeps if I remove the RAM. Surely there ought to be beeps?
The connector to thhe internal speaker seems OK. I've tried it both ways round.

The BIOS is a FastTrak 100 "Lite" (tm) BIOS Version (c) 2002-2005

Should there be any beeps?

if your computer is working ok, I wouldn't worry too much about no beeps. It is usual to get ONE beep at post, which usually means your computer is working as it should.

Perhaps it is just a strong silent type? lol

I have come across a few motherboards that produce their beeps through the loudspeakers, not the case speaker - do you have the standard speakers plugged in and turned on?

It makes no difference which way round you connect a case speaker. Do you know for sure the case speaker works?

how about lowering the alarm for the CPU temp, just to see if the speaker squeals, i tried the other day to be sure it worked and you dont even have to save and exit.

I fitted this board in my PC a couple of weeks ago and noticed the same thing, however everything seems to work fine so I will ignore it. I've found over the years that if it ain't broke, don't fix.

OK, thanks guys. I'll leave it as it is.
At least the standard speakers work.
