If you have a PARALLEL cabled printer, You need the same sized port on your PC.
Most newer PCs no longer have serial ports, as they are antiquated and slow method of communication.

Im building a computer in school and the speaker that runs during POST connector but i have no ihad (nor my teacher) as to where it goes on my asus M68MT-S2P diagrams or pictures would help . thanks


Hi there,

pcsyke_135.jpg

Sir you posted a ASUS M68MT-S2P, there is no such model, the image above is a Gigabyte M68MT-S2P. all you have to do is plug your system speaker and follow the polarity.
The system reports system startup status by issuing a beep code. One single short beep will be heard if no problem is detected at system startup. If a problem is detected, the BIOS may issue beeps in different patterns to indicate the problem.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
