Run "sbin/lsmod | grep pcspkr". If that does not print out the pcspkr
module loaded, then you'll have to load it. As root "modproble pcspkr".
To make this happen automagically each boot create as root

touch /etc/rc.modules
chown root:root /etc/rc.modules
chmod 755 /etc/rc.modules

with following content:


/sbin/modprobe -q pcspkr
