Proview monitors with built in speakers have a jack on the bottom for an 1/8 inch stereo audio cable connection to the sound card.

No cable and no sound on speakers for flat screen monitor


Hello Tothelake45,
When you bought your computer, you might have received lot of cables along with it... so find out the cable that has the jacks on both the ends of the cable. The Jack looks like that shown below.

So we are looking for a cable that has a jack at both the ends.. One jack goes into the soundcard of your computer (the green color coded port or the port where you normally connect your desktop speakers or headphones) and the other end goes to the similar connector on the monitor which is color coded as well (green color).
Please let me know if that works and please do not forget to rate the solution.

Thanks and Regards,

No sound


If speakers are built into the monitor, then there should be an audio cable that connects from the monitor to the green speaker out jack on the back of the computer.

If speakers are NOT built into the monitor, then buy a set of speakers from a store.

No sound through external speakers


Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.

I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.

If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.

Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.

Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.

If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Trying to add speakers


The only way i can see of feeding two sets of speakers from the one pc would be to buy or make up a "splitter" audio lead .....i.e a 3.5mm stereo jack on one end connected to the pc with two lots of wiring going to 2 3.5 mm jacks. I don't know whether a store like Maplins would sell such a lead. Are you any good with a soldering iron??

Sound trouble


Be sure the audio cable is connected from the monitor to the sound card (green port) and that the monitor volume is actually on and turned up. If you are able to get sound with other speakers or headphones connected to your computer then the problem is with the monitor speakers.

This is free unless you want the premium services as I understand it. It just takes time for someone to browse the questions and reply.

No sound in sm2232bw monitor


CURSE YOU SAMSUNG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I'm done now. Some monitors require a separate power supply for their speakers. I don't know if yours would have one, so you'll have to check. Also, are you sure that you have it connected properly? It you do, are you sure that the monitor has built-in speakers? Once you have checked these things, get back to me.

Cannot get any sound from my Dimension 3100


Speakers are not built into the box itself. They may be in the monitor, or completely separate.

Did you get this directly from Dell, or from a third party. Dell would have shipped you speakers with it, or a monitor with speakers built-in. Purchased from a third-party you might just get the box itself.

If you have a monitor with speakers, you still have to connect the sound output from the box to the monitor.

Viewsonic Monitor sound problem


Hi check the sound cable hasn't fallen out or come loose from the back of the monitor. After this reinstall the drivers for the monitor you will be able to download them from viewsonic if still not working then the speaker jack or speakers are faulty.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
