    Its just gone silent......

    My Aopen SFF, which has been wailing its arse off for days now from the Mobo speaker....


    has just fallen silent.

    I have reflashed to a newer Bios....no joy..back to an older one...no joy...back to the latest one....no joy.

    So I decided to set BIOS up anyway, with a bit of tape over the speakers and headphones on my ears (I'm not kidding....not 1 bit)

    and after 10 minutes of adjusting stuff in BIOS (without a reboot) it has fallen silent.

    So the question is this: Which of the following has sorted the situation?

    Activating Cache System BIOS and Cache Video BIOS....cos it fell silent 10 seconds after I did that

    Disactivating C1 disconnect.....cos I dont know what it does but it fell silent 3 seconds after I did that.

    Or just letting it wail its arse off for longer than 5 minutes without a reboot...


    For the record...I have just reveresed those things, ie Disactivated the caching and reactivated the C1 and rebooted and its still silent.



    How spooky is that? I should be happy....but as I dont know WHY its working all of a sudden....I dont know what too think.

    What do YOU think?

    just swapped CPU's....

    the noise is back.....put original one back in to check its dead...it is...put Duron in as was runnning i fine....PC works but speaker is now in siren mode again.

    When the CPU failed to POST and I put the good one in, the BIOS has reset stuff such as the C1 and Caching back to default...I have re adjusted but to no avail. SPeaker is still wailing.

    Will now leave it for an hour to see if it shuts up

    Thats not fair....it might be troo...but itsnot fair

    XP is going on now....

    bemused. Once I get a new CPU for it, I shall plug it in, wait for the beeping and then leave it on its own for 40 minutes.

    New thread imminent

    You tried mailing Aopen to see if they can shed any light on it?

    Failing that - Disconnect the damn thing!
