    The only way I can think of is to get an ASUS mobo with the POST reporter feature:
    http://www.asus.com/support/english/...s/postrep.aspx
    It let's you take a wav file and use it instead of the default voice.

    If you don't have an ASUS mobo with POST reporter then there wouldn't be enough room in the BIOS chip to store the audio data. Even if there was, it would take quite a bit of BIOS modding.

    my only thought is to buy a simple toy that makes a varoom sound when you press a momentary button. Find a relay (probably a 12V one) and connect the relay to where the button was on the toy. After that connect the relay to the speaker pins on the motherboard.
