No just connect the 15 prong vga plug and dont worry about the 24 prong one15 prong is vga and 24 is dvi both are for video and will not affect the sound. The audio should have a jack plug on it.

I have an acer aspire m3400 is start but no sound, no display graphics plz help me.


Try another monitor. If that works, download the latest drivers for your OS here... http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
If the old monitor still doesn't work, here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

I am trying to hook up my monator to the computer(cpu) and only nave one wire to it. I think there should have 2. I was looking for a hookup diagram. Can't find one HELP


There should be two cables coming from your monitor -- one that hooks up to the computer and one that goes to the outlet, for power. The outlet cable looks almost like a normal power cable, with three prongs on one end and three holes on the other end.

The cable that hooks to your computer is likely a serial cable, with a blue connector that hooks up to the blue port on the back of your PC. Instead of the serial connector, you might have a DVI connector, which is skinnier and should have a removable white cap on it. If your computer has a DVI port, than you can use the DVI cable, otherwise you'll have to use the serial cable (with the blue connector).

Hope that helps.

How do i connect my adventt9101 to my sony lcd tv, i want to use hdmi leads but i dont think my pc has hdmi port? any help


If you don't have an HDMI connection on your computer, then you will need to get a VGA cable. There should be a VGA connection on your tv. Just disconnect the monitor on your computer and connect the VGA cable from the computer monitor port to the VGA port on the tv. You may have to set the tv for PC or Aux input. You won't have high definition or sound to the tv with a VGA cable though. The sound will still come through your PC speakers.

your video card (not tv tuner) has to connect to your tv. you would then use your tv as your computer monitor. If you dont have all the proper connections to connect your video card in your pc to your tv, then you may have to use a different video card. It just depends on what tv and video card you have

24" DOA Soyo Monitor


What size monitor were you using before? If you were using a smaller monitor and everything was fine maybe this new monitor is out of range for the graphics card. I've found that not all graphics cards, especially older ones, will not run a monitor as large as 24 inches. If you can, connect this new 24 inch monitor to a computer with a more powerful graphics card. If it works then you will know that the problem is with your computer. Also connect your old monitor and go into control panel and see what range and resolution your graphics card will support. You may need a more powerful card to run the new monitor.

Aspire? T180


If the PC does not to any beep then usually is a problem with the motherboard.

If the PC does a certain number of beeps on startup, then tell me how many beeps to troubleshoot the problem.

If the computer does single beep on startup as usual, then may be the monitor, monitor cable or graphic adapter.

Simple thing that you can do it yourself is disconnecting computer power cable from power outlet for 15 -12 mins. ac connect it back, this will solve troubles caused by electrostatic charges.
Also check video cable connections to monitor.
If you have another computer also test the monitor on other computer.
If the main unit is not booting (CD drives and internal fans often start up even if the Motherboard is blown). Then yo need to open the pc and test component inside.
If you have practice in fixing hardware you can start removing RAM modules and testing them, then buy a tester board for the MB and do a diagnostic test on motherboard.
Other options are taking PC to service or getting a new PC.
If the PC is still under guarantee, then contact Acer to validate your guarantee and get the machine to an authorised service centre.
