Motherboard speaker (beeper)

I haven't been able to find an answer to this. Does the MSI 970A G43 Mobo have an onboard speaker or a place to plug one in? I can't get started up with no beeps, no onboard video, and the graphics card not outputting a signal to monitor. No beeps could signal a bad CPU, but I'm not sure it's no beeps or just an absence of a beeper. If there is a plug I can buy aplug in speaker for nearly nohing.

Thanks

Just talked to a technician at MSI. He confirmed there is no speaker on the MSI 970A, but a speaker can be hooked up at the JFP2 socket using only the four pin side of this seven pin socket. I've ordered speakers on Ebay.

Looking at the pics on newegg i don't see a speaker in the box contents, but according to this post

http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1737385/motherboard-speaker.html

page 1-23 of the manual tells you where it plugs in.

Speaker are available for ~$5 from amazon, & I guess elsewhere.

I think every mobo should come with a tiny display panel at the back which shows post numbers like Asus do with their ROG boards. I built a new pc for the 1st time and had some errors, there was no sound but looking up those numbers in the manual helped solve the problem.

not sure how or why this is just coming through my email 9 months later, but for more than one reason I junked the MSI board and processor and went with Intel i5 4430 processor and a gigabyte H97-D3H board with onboard video and 1150 socket (easy to use).

I now have the best computer I've ever owned. Fast and trouble free.

Thanks, but I had already read about the manual,but there is no page 1-23 in my Mobo manual. There is a En-23 that covers "clear CMOS".

On start up I hooked the graphics card to a monitor and no signal to monitor. I don't have an onboard video card.

No beeps, no video... Ireally need a Mobo beeper. Yes, spekers are vey plentiful and cheap, but where do they plug in on the Mobo mentioned above.Thanks for the comments.
