Is your monitor SUPPOSED to have sound? Apart from the power cable and the monitor cable, if it is a monitor with speakers, there should also be an audio cable. So 3 total. If it has a mic too, 4 cables. The audio cable is normally green and the mic cable pink.

Most monitors don't have sound though, and the ones that do, sound crappy. So unless you just plan to hear Windows dings, get some cheap speakers.

ASUS VH238 LED MONITOR HAS NO SOUND, NEED SOUND DRIVER


The VH238 monitor does not need a sound driver, the monitor plugs into the sound card in your computer and that is what needs the sound driver. Be sure the sound/speaker cable is connected between the monitor and the computer. It should look like this. The cable was included in the box with the monitor and plugs into the jack on the computer where the speakers usually plug and is green in color.

You may need to load the monitor drivers.

I assume your PC sound is OK.

When you are plugging the green lead in the Moniotr / PC do you hear any noise from the monitor?? if not may be faulty.

Try plugging a friends set of speakers into the back of your PC.

Bose Companion 2 Speakers won't work with Sony Vio Laptop


You don't write which operating system you use, but generally you should be able to choose where the sound output goes in the Sound Properties in Control Panel.
If however Sony decided to put some special software that does the thinking for you, and directs the sound output via the HDMI when connected, then you have to dig deeper...

Lost manual for hp compact.


The speakers wires are normally color coded if the computer isn't ancient, the Speaker PLUG is green, if you are using the speakers in the monitor, then plug the green one from monitor to green jack on back of PC, (Microphone plug and jack is pink/Red).
If you are using other speakers 3rd party, 4.1,5.1, the hookup is different usually, But I think you need green to green, there should only be one green plug on back of PC, It may be labled sound out. but yours is probably green.
PS you also need to kake sure the monitor speakers dont require their own Power Supply/ AC adapter, Most of them do, while some desktop and monitor speakers do not just connect the cord ffrom monitor to green jack, "sound out". If this helps, thanks for the feedback

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.

No sound coming out of monitor


Dear user, you need a 3,5 mm jack cable wich has the same connector on each side.
Plug it into the monitor and the GREEN output ( stanadard output color since pc'97) and it will sound, maybe you have to set the volume in the menu of the monitor.

Best wishes.

CJ,
1. Check make sure the audio cable are plugged in from the monitor to the PC output audio jack (light green).
2. Open your on screen display and go to Volume settings. See if it set on mute or set to 0.
3. Turn of your monitor & PC and unplugged all the cables from your monitor and PC wait for 10 seconds and then replugged it all the cables and audio cable back. Then turned on you PC...
4. If it still doesn't work.. open the back cover see if the speaker cable are plugged in.
5. If that doesn't work...then your monitor AD board built-in speakers are defective.
6. Why not just used a external speakers, it give better sound quality.
Have a nice weekend!
