Re: Speakers not working

You will need to connect an audio cable from your computers sound card to the audio input under the monitor.(near where the video and power leads plug in)
You will need a standard 3.5mm to 3.5mm stereo lead for this.

Hope that helps =)

Some monitors do not have speakers (my HP monitor does not). The sound has come out of some external speakers attached to the tower. Or maybe you need to access the monitors on-screen menu to turn the speakers on (if they have speakers). Or maybe you can access the monitor speaker control through the PCs Device Manager option (this is where all external components attache to the PC can be viewed, and sometimes changed).

Hp monitro speakers not working


I think the sound drivers of your monitor may have got corrupted after formatting and hence you are facing the issue of speakers not working. Please try to rest the Monitor by turning off the monitor then press and hold the menu button and while you are still holding the menu button turn on the monitor and hold it still for 2 minutes. If the problem persists then you need to download the new drivers for your monitor from and install them to resolve the issue you are facing with.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Speaker trouble

There has to be separate cord for the speakers. Look for an Audio port on the back of the monitor. It looks like a small hole and should be marked "Audio". Connect this to the Audio out on the PC using a cable with two Audio jacks at both ends.

No sound

Hello Yellowbones.. First off.. are you sure your cable is plugged into the appropriate jack on the back of your computer? If it is.. then do you have a spare set of speakers that you can plug into that jack to determine if it is teh speakers or the sound card? If you have a set of other speakers, try that first so we can confirm that it is a problem from your ausio driver versus the speaker set itself.. On the assumption that the sound card is the blame.. You may want to verify that hardware is working properly. You shopuld be able to go into the control panel from the Start menu and find Sounds and Audio Device menu.. once you have that.. make sure you do not have your system set to Mute... and then you can select the hardware tab and find your sound card device in the listing.. once you highlight that, it should tell you if your device is working properly or not.. and give you a troubleshooting tab to walk you thru some diagnostics.. You may also select the driver tab and update the driver for your card to see if that resloves the problem too.

Hi Jonathan,

Pls check if the cables are connected to the right port.
Also check the monitor volume settings.

Pls check with a set of powered speakers.

Pls run dxdiag from Run in Start menu if you are using windows.

Also you can check for any issued with the drivers or any driver updates.

Pls try a system restore also if none of the above steps work.

No sound coming from speakers.

Did you run the audio cable from the computer to the monitor. If not you must have that for the speakers to work. If yes can you verify computer output with another pair of speakers to narrow it down to computer or monitor. If it is the monitor built in speakers that are the problem reply and we can go through a procedure to get them working.

Speakers in monitor wont work

hi there, 1st check the connection of cable speakers. then check the volume control, switch it mid range setting. then check the hardware device if there is no conflict with any device. try to reset your system once again and if still same problem, you may have a Speaker problem, maybe the connection inside your monitor with the speaker has a loose connection or some electronics part failure. TY

Get Moniter Speakers Working

Hello First of all you need a sound card on your computer with a Spk. (Speaker) or Phones (headphones) Out Jack it might be a symbol of a small speaker or headphones. You have to be sure you are getting a actual sound output signal from this sound card too. If the sound card is not working your moniter speakers would not have a signal to drive it. You also need a 1/8" Stereo 2 male stereo plugs on both ends, one end plugs in back of moniter other plugs in back of computer like I mentiond above. Make sure your Mute button is not selected on your computers volume button usally at bottom right of screen. Make sure the volume buttons are up to aprox 3/4 up also. Then for last on the moniter look in the menu i think you might have to keep pressing the menu button but i kind of forget now but its a Spk setting and volume setting in this speaker setup within the moniter as well make sure this is turned on and set at a higher volume level as well. Thats about all I can say without taking the moniter apart and checking the jack and wires and speakers. I would suggest you take it to a electronics or a tv repair or computer repair person to go any further then this. Hope you take time to read all of this I tried to put every step in here to help anyone out with this problem. Thanks for reading. Ken T
