Look for a cold solder joint in the vertical drive
Check the inductors in the vertical drive for a cold solder joint where windings attach to pins, as well as any transistors in the vertical drive section.
Check the caps in the power supply providing the low voltage to the audio and video processing IC's

Also chance that you have a bad X sustain board

I have a Dell W3706MH tv monitor and the sound just stop working. I unplugged the speakers and plugged them back in still no sound. I unplugged them because it was making a loud buzzing and popping noise...


If possible, plug the speakers into a portable device such as a cell phone, portable cd player or a tv that is equipped with a headphone jack (if speakers have the jack). If not, if the speakers have the red and white, ref and black or black and white male end connectors, plug them into a tv or dvd\blue ray player. If you get sound they are good, and you need to adjust your sound options on your computer. Let me know if this helps\works. Also, not all speakers are compatible with all computers and must have the same sound level equivalence to the device they are being used with. i.e. Ohms etc.

Xbox360 to pc monitor


HDMI to DVI works better than HDMI to VGA because VGA only uses simple RBG scheme.

Additionally the only way i see the Xbox getting connected to the extrenal speakers is if you get the speakers connected to the monitor/tv or whatever you are using directly. I havent tried or do not know of any way to connect the Xbox to speakers directly.

Monitor works perfectly, but after a recent crash of my comp. Ive lost all sound ..The comp doesnt seem to recognize the build in speakers..


The computer does not have to recognize the powered speakers that are built-in the monitor, the computer feeds the analog audio signal the powered speakers inside the montior, there is no driver needed either, but you do need the PC sound card driver for you to get sound through any powered speakers (either the desk top powered speakers or the one inside the montior).
Since your computer had crashed, the driver for the sound card may be have to be reloaded.
You can verify if the monitor speakers are working or not by feeding it with an MP3 player or sound output from CD player.

I don't have the sound disk anymore and the monitor is not producing any sound. When I try to download the driver my computer says it doesn't recognize my model VA1930wm


The monitor driver is for your computer to recognize all the resolutions your monitor can handle, there is no sound driver for the monitor to work since the monitor built-in powered speakers are jsut that, powered speakers, same as the one you buy if the monitor does not have built-in powered speaker.
You can test the monitor speaker system by feeding it with the MP3 player or any sound sources.
It may have bad power amplifiers IC. You will be better off spending money on a good set of PC powered speaker system that will provide a lot better sound quality than the quarter-size speakers in the monitor.

I have a samaung pc/tv monitor,i use for pc and tv use,i have external speakers for the pc and would like to connect them also for the tv as the sound as is not very good,putting the tv menu in external...


Some actual model numbers would make this conversation more relevant.

If your PC speakers are self-powered they should accept the RCA output from any device that provides headphone or Line Level audio.

Where is the TV audio actually coming FROM? Maybe a Cable Box? THAT is where the PC speaker should tap in.

Many TV's have a Fixed or variable audio output. Fixed allows for disabing the TV speakers or turning its volume down without affecting the audio out to other devices.

My view sonic monitor has no sound


Troubleshooting Sound Issues Verify that the audio cable is connected to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card and plugged into the AUDIO IN or LINE IN of the Monitor.   Make sure there are no cables connected to the Headphone Jack (located next to the AUDIO IN port) on the monitor. If there is, please disconnect that cable and try the speakers again. Connecting a cable to the Headphone Jack disables the speakers. If there is no cable connected into the Headphone Jack, test a pair of headphones into that jack to see if you can hear sound out of the headphones. If you are able to hear sound out of the headphones, disconnect the headphones and try the speakers again.   Verify that the Mute on the monitor is not on or the Volume is not turned down.    Verify that the Mute on the computer is not on or the Volume is not turned down.<    If there is still no audio from the monitor's speakers, connect the Audio cable to another audio source like a portable CD player or tape player headphone output. If audio can be heard through the monitor's speakers, then there may be an issue with the computers sound card.    Connect another set of computer speakers (if available) or headphones to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card. If NO audio can be heard then there is an issue with the sound card. Verify with the computer's manufacturer for additional assistance.   LCD TVs Troubleshooting No Sound from a LCD TV No Sound when using RGB (when connected to a PC) Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the computer. Note: On the N1700W use the GREEN mini-jack; on this model Audio is SHARED between DVI and RGB, there is only 1 audio channel for data connections. The N1700w is designed to take a 1.0v RMS audio signal for optimal sound quality.   Confirm that both the LCD TV Mute and Windows Mute are off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the monitor or remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Confirm that PC volume is sufficient by using Windows/Macintosh Volume adjustment settings.   Try plugging another audio source such as a CD or Cassette Player directly into the Audio port on the LCD TV to confirm the speakers work, or try plugging headphones or external speakers into the sound card on the Computer. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your Computer for further support. No Sound when using S-Video/Composite/ Component Video Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Confirm Mute is off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the LCD TV or Remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Try plugging headphones or external speakers into the audio port on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Note: Some ViewSonic monitors do not include speakers.

No sound from monitor speakers
If the built-in speakers on the monitor do not produce sound, perform each step that follows, testing for sound after each step, until you can hear sound:
  1. Close the software program you are using that is experiencing the sound problems. Test for audio using another software program.
    If the volume is adequate using another software program, the issue is with the computer, not the monitor. If the volume is still low, continue with this procedure.
  2. Check the cable connection. If the monitor-to-computer connection is a VGA cable (usually blue on both ends), an additional audio cable is needed between the monitor and the computer. Check that the audio cable is connected properly.
  3. Try to adjust the volume higher using the monitor front-panel volume button.
  4. Using the buttons on the monitor, navigate through the onscreen display (OSD) menu to find audio or speaker settings and enable the speakers.
  5. Click Start c01292216.gif , Control Panel , and then click Sounds and Audio Devices .
  6. From the Volume tab, check the Device volume, and make sure it is not muted.
  7. From the Audio tab, in the Sound playback field, click the Volume button. Make sure the audio device is not muted and the volume outputs are at adequate levels.
  8. If the monitor-to-computer connection is an HDMI cable, an additional audio cable might be needed, depending on the setup and configuration of the system. To find out whether an additional audio cable is needed, go to
HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Using HDMI Audio with a Desktop Computer


This document pertains to HP or Compaq PCs with an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connector.
HDMI sends both audio and video through the same connection. If you want to hear audio from an HDMI connection, HDMI audio must be set through Windows . For example, if a computer is connected via HDMI to a monitor or TV and the proper HDMI audio settings are made, both audio and video will be sent to the display device.
Use the following steps to activate HDMI audio on your computer:

    NOTE: If you are setting up your computer for the first time, it may be easier to use a DVI connection or DVI-to-VGA adapter connection for the initial setup. Then, if you want to use an HDMI connection to connect a TV or monitor, activate sound for the HDMI connector using the steps that follow before connecting the HDMI cable to the TV or monitor.


    NOTE: After recovering the computer using the Recovery Manager, repeat this procedure to activate sound for the HDMI connector.

Step 1: Enabling HDMI sound in the BIOS
To hear audio through the HDMI connector to a monitor or display, enable the Onboard Audio setting in the computer BIOS settings by completing the following steps.

    NOTE: If you choose the default BIOS Setup options or upgrade the BIOS, you must repeat this procedure to enable audio for the HDMI connector.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. To enter the BIOS, turn on the computer and press the F10 key repeatedly until a BIOS Setup screen opens.
    A BIOS Setup screen opens.
  3. Press the right arrow key on the keyboard to select the Advanced tab.
  4. Press the down arrow key to select Onboard Audio , and then press the Enter key.
