I'm not /sure/ about this, but I /think/ that feature may use the 
traditionally on-board PC-speaker/piezo/buzzer, now legacy and often 
omitted especially since most mobos come with full onboard sound these 
days, not the regular sound system.

Some add-on sound-cards have a two-pin input plug that can be connected 
to the onboard pc-speaker output, in place of or in addition to it, and 
then a separate volume control for the pc-speaker input.

There's also the pc-speaker kernel driver.  If your kernel doesn't have 
that module loaded or built-in, it probably won't work even if you have 
the hardware.
