Are you sure you've actually got an internal speaker? Not all motherboards have a connector for it. (Does your computer make a beep when you turn it on..?)

I dont have internal speaker...i never get beep from computer

BTW: My motherboard is old and it was the cheapest one

In which case, you may aswell stop trying to get the non-existant speaker to make a noise ;)

If you don't care what the beep sounds like just print a '\a' character.

cout << '\a';

or

putchar('\a');

yeah i know that "\a"

try typing this code :Beep (1000,100);
