Built in speakers

How do you get them to work?

How do I get volume on my Dell 2414H Monitor?


I believe this monitor does not have a built-in speaker. If you have the optional hang-on speaker, it must connect to the laptop's speaker/headphone port (speaker's green connector cable/plug). You cannot use the external speaker and the headphone at the same time unless you are using a Y connector cable.
This monitor has a VGA and a DVI-D ports for video input. Neither supports sound.

Is there any way to use headphones on the HP 2159m computer monitor? possibly external computer speakers? I have a desktop computer connected to the monitor by a HDMI cable.


There is no audio output on that monitor. So decoding the HDMI into analog is out. However, the simple fix is to plug your speakers or headphones into the green 3.5mm headphone jack on the back of your computer, and change the default audio device in windows. You can use both audio cards at once for different tasks, such as having someones voice come over your HDMI cable on the monitor, while listening to music on the audio out of your computer.

If you need any help setting the audio card, let me know.

My speaker all of a sudden stopped working, they are built into my monitor, and worked last night. what do i do?


  1. Check the volume control in windows and make sure audio was't muted
  2. Check the audio cable and ensure it is connected to the port on the system
  3. Ensure headphones are not plugged in an aux audio port as they will mute the speakers
  4. Check the audio drivers in Device manager
  5. Try a known good set of speakers (Or CD player headphones) and ensure the audio on the system if functional
  6. If all else fails, replace the speakers ($20 or less at any major department store)

Speakers or not


If your monitor has speakers built in, it's likely that there is an Audio Out port on the back or one of the sides. You can use a simple 1/8" input/output cable that will connect to the port on your monitor and the Audio In port on your desktop.

If you already have that set up correctly and you are still not hearing any audio coming from the monitor, there may be a configuration console that is available after installing the software for the monitor. If you don't see any software installed, find the installation disc and see if there is an application available to install.

If you don't have the disc, you might be able to find the software online at the manufacturer's support site.

You might also be able to change some configuration settings from within the Sounds and Audio Devices console in Control Panel.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Due to the lack of info i am going to list the possible problems from simple to complex.
1. check power (is it plugged in / is voltage passing)
2. check the signal.. (follow the signal cable to the pc and make sure its connected to the OUTPUT)
3. is your sound card functional (plug in some headphones to the output to test it / also check to see if the drivers are installed and functioning)

Assuming your using a Windows operating system, you need to got to the sound settings and set your computers soundcard as the preferred output device. (Its under Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices in XP)
