Question about Acer AL1914 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Speaker trouble I just got this moniter for Christmas and just got it all hooked up and running and I can't figure out how to work the speakers. under the volume menu it says that the speakers are working and the volume on the computer is hooked up, but I just don't hear anything. Is there supposed to be a seperate cord for the speakers? what can I do?

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.

Can i hook up speakers to an lg e2340v moniter to watch netflix? i have it hooked up through hdmi. I have no sound though.


The monitor does not have sound passthru feature so the speakers would not be able to work that way. You can connect the speakers to the Roku box in the audio out jacks. You will need to get a cable from radio shack to make the connection.

I have a hp w19b moniter and everything is hooked up even the speakers. However the speakers have yet to work. I have made sure there plugged in and everything.


The speakers in this monitor require a powered speaker output, and most audio cards only provide a line level output, which is not enough to drive these.
You may need to go out and get another sound card like a creative labs or the like - but make sure the card has a SPEAKER out on it, and not just a line level output.
You may be better off simply going out and getting a set of powered speakers!

Just hooked up computer and monitor and cant get any sound to play through moniter. do we need external speakers?


The Samsung SyncMaster 2233BW does not have built-in speakers, so yes, you need external speakers separately for sound.

Hp w2207 monitor has no sound


Does the moniter have internal speakers? If so then there is a volume controller option on the moniter or else you have to use external speakers.

I have a new acer v173 moniter cant get sound


I just looked at the specs for it and there are no audio inputs. But fear not! There is still a way. Look on the back of your PC for 3 color coded input jacks. For your speakers jack, look for a green or lime colored input and plug your speaker cord into it and you'll be good to go. You may even be able to use the same color coding from the front of your PC. It will also be your headphone jack if getting to the back of the PC is a pain in the you- know- what! Let me know if you need additional help! Thanks for rating this solution (if you do).

Need to over-ride built-in speakers so desktop speakers work. Ever since I hooked up my Compac W17q monitor, the built-in speakers have taken over, but I want my desktop speakers for sound instead. How can...


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)

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
