"Beep" Speaker -can I play wav sounds thru it???

I am in an office setting that has all external speakers/wav disabled, but the "beep" speaker on the PC still works.

Is there any way to redirect the .wav or onboard sound to come through these little "beep" speakers...  

If anyone has any info on this it would be very interesting.

if you have onboard sound take the end opposite the speaker off and put it on the sound pins on your motherboard refer to your motherboard documentation to see where the sound pins are then you have a tiny speaker if you don,t have onboard sound  and you have no sound card then it can,t be done.

No, beep speaker is just a little beeper inside your PC.

It cannot play wav/midi/mp3 or anything else ;)

The internal PC speaker (unless provided by Dell, or Gateway) is just a buzzer.  bios will only send cetain voltages to it to make it beep higher or lower.  some Dell and Gateway computers also have a built in Audio that (If no speakers are plugged in) will play thought that speaker.  But like joinaunion stated, with out and onboard audio card, this wont work.

Plus, that speaker is such a bad quality, i would rather have no sound (or 5$ headset) then using the sound that it would produce.  That speaker has little to zero bass response.  your better off buying a Sound card and some speakers.  You could even get some USB speakers that (i dont think) wont even need a sound card.

So let me get this straight:

1.) There is no way to get the onboard/soundcard sound to come thru the beep/internal speaker
unless you: Switch the onboard speaker-out to the soundpins on your motherboard?

There is no way to redirect the sound into that little speaker with any BIOS,  DOS or WIN commands?
                 
2.) This is ONLY possible with the intental Speaker provided by Gateway/Dell/


NOTE: Playing PC sound through the beep speaker/internal speaker is the GOAL, points reward focused on that.

do you have onboard sound or a soundcard?If its onboard sound connect the ends opposite the speaker to the onboard sound jumpers there should be some pins you can plug them into if you have the exact model of you computer this will help to,or if you know the type of motherboard?
