snd_hda_codec         126529  1 snd_azx
snd_pcm_oss            52729  0
snd_mixer_oss          21953  2 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm                92357  3 snd_azx,snd_hda_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer              28229  1 snd_pcm

Code:
[root@malick ~]# cat /etc/modprobe.conf
alias eth0 3c59x
alias scsi_hostadapter ata_piix
alias snd-card-0 snd-azx
options snd-card-0 index=0
install snd-azx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-azx && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-azx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-azx
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7 dma=3
So a little help will be handy

modprobe pcspkr

And check whether it's not blacklisted.



Cheers,

If you don't get any beep during BIOS boot that normally means the speaker is not present or is not working. Normally BIOS signals error conditions by beep patterns so most give a single beep at the beginning of boot to let the user know the speaker is working. This is similar to the way hardware with LEDs to indicate errors lights them all during start up to let you know they are working.

Have you looked to see if the speaker is physically present and connected? Some Intel motherboards have the speaker on-board but most have a header for case speaker wiring.

Ok, so it was loaded already, and hence can't be blacklisted.

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Is it strange that the foder you specified is not in my box
Code:
[root@malick ~]# cd /etc/modprobe.d/
-bash: cd: /etc/modprobe.d/: No such file or directory
