You mean the one attached to your motherboard? Well if you need the warning signals, then just get a soldering Iron and solder the wires back on.

Just cut, strip and connect the ends and cover with electrical tape. It will not affect your system negatively in any way but the speaker does give you diagnostic beeps at boot if you have hardware problems so just splice the wire!! If broken at the speaker connector use the soldering advice form above. Piece of cake!!
