switch off buzzer from the motherboard

Postby cccc » Sat Aug 09, 2014 1:19 am

hi

I have this Motherboard DH55HC with a small Buzzer.
This buzzer pretty loud beeps at the startup.
Howto switch it off?
I have searched already in the BIOS, but cannot find any buzzer settings to disable.

I think there's a small jumper near that in the middle of 4 pins. you would connect a system speaker on the outer pins instead of the onboard buzzer. however, just removing the jumper should numb the onboard buzzer.

Thx, but cannot find this jumper.
Here is a technical manual, but even there I cannot find:

If you have the user's manual, it should detail what the front-panel pinout is. It is your 'friend'. Typically, four pins are reserved for an external system speaker. If two pins have a jumper on them, that redirects the power to a small 'buzzer' on the motherboard. Should also be a small printed diagram of what the front-panel pins are for, either at the header or nearby.
As an alternative, you could put a small bit of electrical tape over its sound port.

You could also try muffling it with a bit of electrical tape. But the external speaker connector should work.

I think the connector X for the internal mono speaker is in parallell with the buzzer. Normally you would connect a regular speaker in there to get the noise from it. If you put a low-value resistor in that connector it should shunt the buzzer to near silence as i think that has a high impedance.

A piezo speaker definitely is high impedance.. 5 K ohms or higher.
Noted on page 22 of the manual..
The internal mono speaker header allows connectivity to an internal, low-power
speaker for basic system sound capability. The subsystem is capable of driving a
target speaker load of 8 Ohms at 1 W (rms) or 4 Ohms at 1.5 W (rms).

On page 39 it is noted there is a 2-pin connector (item "X") for an internal system speaker.
On page 46 is the diagram and pinout for the front panel header.

in the extreme U can get a soldering iron and simply remove the buzzer!
