Can't get the built in webcam to work on my computer


well....the Webcam has it's own connection to the PC, (typically a USB cable,) but the sound will come out of your speakers.....so if you have your speakers built into your monitor, then yes, there needs to be a 2nd cable from the monitor to the back of the PC. It should have a headphone jack at each end; there will be only one place on the monitor it will fit. On the back of the PC, there should be a small round pale-green connection to plug-in near the USB ports, (unless you have added your own separate sound card, then it should go there.)


If the video is not working, then check if it is plugged into the EXACT same USB port. You do not note what OS you're using....but usually I recommend a device be removed from the device manager, then rebooted several times before attempting to re-install it.

No sound


If speakers are built into the monitor, then there should be an audio cable that connects from the monitor to the green speaker out jack on the back of the computer.

If speakers are NOT built into the monitor, then buy a set of speakers from a store.

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.

Dude, the hdmi is just for the video signal, you'll have to use a separate audio cable to get sound from the integrated speakers.

Hi, Have just purchased a Compaq SR5522. Already had fairly new flatscreen monitor with built in speakers so we didn't need new ones. Everything is connected up correctly and the monitor is working fine...


Check the connections first. There are usually at least two jacks on the back of a PC that look alike. Make sure you are connected to the one that is markes Speaker or has a tiny graphic of a speaker. Id the new connector is USB, then that's not it. Check the sound settings on your PC. If there is more than one output option, you may be sending the sound to the wrong one.

I only have volume coming from headphones. There is no volume coming from the built in speakers on the monitor once I have taken headphones out. I have done as many relevant checks as I can, ie: none of...


You probably have a sound cable which needs to be connected from your monitor to your computer. Have a look to see if there are any other jack type sockets on the monitor. If there are the chances are you need to cable it up.

Cannot get any sound from my Dimension 3100


Speakers are not built into the box itself. They may be in the monitor, or completely separate.

Did you get this directly from Dell, or from a third party. Dell would have shipped you speakers with it, or a monitor with speakers built-in. Purchased from a third-party you might just get the box itself.

If you have a monitor with speakers, you still have to connect the sound output from the box to the monitor.

Speakers dont work


They are built into the monitor, however there is a cable that needs to be connected from the speaker socket of your sound card (normally colour coded green) to the audio in on the back of your monitor.  If this is done already, you need to check your volume settings on both your PC and on the monitor (remembering to check for any "Mute" settings)
