I don't have a single System Speaker but I do have a load of LEDs. For some unknown reason my AMD box isn't booting up. I've already reset CMOS and all the right wires are connected. Power supply is more than enough as well.
Burning out is only in the long term, I suppose you could make it into a permanent solutions then you will need it. But for a shortbterm then teh risk of burning out is pretty dim, spexcialy because it isnt getting more than a few seconds of power
used an LED from a salvaged computer case. showed nothing, however. The only issue that was shown was the GT 430 (uses no external PCIe power) was pulsating along with the PSU. ASUS 6850 showed no issue and displayed nothing on screen either.
out of curiosity, I changed the PCIe slot the graphics card was in. BOOM, IT WORKS. I don't even know why. I changed the dual-card setting that I found set to use dual cards. it's working now.
I'm rather interested in why it changed. Before I stored it in the closet, I made sure it worked using the GT 430 and the Phenom II 940 that is in it almost a year ago. it all worked fine then. I bagged the entire system, GPU, case, PSU and all and stored it in the closet on its side (to prevent PCB warping from the DH14 on it).
about the LED: it works FANTASTICALLY. It's very dim while not in use and lights up nice and bright when the beep signal comes in.
