Hey /g/, I just found something really weird in my computer. I can't post a pic, but it looks like the microphone on this board - except that it has an opening on the top side (and there's a (+) stamped on it. On the bottom, there are two wires soldered (-) (+) and they're severed about 2 centimeters from it.

It was located near the HDD.

will post a quick drawing in the next post
>>
Is it a motherboard speaker maybe?
>>
It's a fucking capacitor, you moron!!
>>

No, it wasn't connected anywhere...
>>
it's an NSA spying device ; i know this from my many years looking @ piezo speakers, a key component in brainwashing operations.

But how could it possibly work without it being connected to anything?

Oh, and one more thing: The case had an opening sawed especially for this thing. It's not a magnet; I checked.
>>
>>52542400
It isn't a mic if it doesn't have a magnet. Just sayin'
>>
>>52542426
What the fuck is it, then? For what purpose is it there?
>>
>>52542426
Ever heard of electret and capacitor microphones?
>>
>>52542351
Pic?
>>
>>52542400

Looks like one of those beeper speakers for error codes.
>>
>>52542464
I said I couldn't make one right now..

will make one as soon as I can
>>
>>52542500
this is it.

>people don't know about pc speakers anymore

sigh.
>>
>>52542500
Those still work, though; I just checked.

The PC was sent two times during its' warranty period; could the guys who repaired it during that time replaced it or something?

Yeah, but it isn't connected anywhere.
>>
>>52542578
>>52542587
well, thanks /g/

this shouldn't have been a thread

sorry
>>
>>52542400
Thats a mobi speaker, used for identifying beep codes. Did you have the rig repaired ? Maybe they left it inside
>>
>>52542587
Someone just probably cut it off either by mistake or on purpose.

Don't worry OP you're not bugged, your CP is safe. I would check the molars though.
>>
>>52542616
Yeah, it was sent once for GPU and once for PSU replacement.

This doesn't explain a thing about why they removed it.. Did they notice it wasn't working and replaced it out of good will?

>>52542620
Whew, I'm glad.
>>
>>52542645
Nah they probably just forgot to toss it, if its in there but not attached. Probably smoking pot while fixing your gpu breh
>>
>>52542715
>Probably smoking pot while fixing your gpu breh
can confirm i smoke and occasionally do a line while i fix people's computers
>>
>>52542400
It's the PC speaker, the thing that makes the beep sound when your PC posts.
>>
>>52542437
shit, you probably have the badbios now
