This may be a somewhat odd request, but is there any way to make the motherboard speaker beep when certain things happen in Win10? For example, I recently used my old Windows XP prebuilt from over a decade ago, and I noticed that every time you would exit a program without saving the motherboard would give a little beep. I really enjoy it for some reason, and I know PC speaker beeps are something of a relic, but are there any existing programs that allow you to set when the PC Speaker beeps?

I also found a program called BaWaMi which can play MIDI files though the mobo speaker (albeit in buzzes and not really pleasantly) so I know there are ways to activate it through Windows.

If anyone knows how to do this it would be greatly appreciated.

Probably need a utility program of some sort.

E.g., beep.exe.

From the associated notepad.txt file:

" -- Beep.exe 2.0 --

Freeware


-- Purpose --

Beep.Exe is a tiny Windows command line utility that
uses the internal PC speaker to make a sound. This
can be useful in situations when you do not have a
sound card or speakers are not connected or turned
on.

Typical usage is in batch scripts or similar to
signal events. For example, [reviewer] use it myself to
signal when [reviewer's] (slow) PC has booted and launched
all startup applications and is ready to use."

You might also be able to do something similar via Visual Basic's "beep" command. Or likewise in another language.

And Powershell could be used:

So I think you have options but the required detail and level of effort (coding, script) may vary with your needs.

The motherboard speaker does not show up as a sound device in this menu, unfortunately.

I do see the Sounds tab, but I believe you are misunderstanding what I'm asking.

I want the motherboard speaker to beep, not the actual computer speakers (where you would listen to music from, etc.)

I don't believe there is a way to associate things with the Mobo speaker beeping from the sounds tab.
