Acer H213H No sound

Hi, I have recently purchased this monitor with built in speakers but cannot get them to work. I am using the HDMI cable with an adaptor to connect the monitor, as I've read so far this could be an issue as the HDMI cable can also carry sound. Though in this case the sound would not be coming from the video card port (this is the case with people trying to hook up to PS3/Xbox). If anyone can help I would be very appreciative.

1. What adaptor are you using?
2. hdmi carries both audio and video signal
3. If your using an old dvi to hdmi cable the old dvi cables do not have the 4 extra pins for sound. 
SO..... best bet is to hit best buy up for a new dvi to hdmi cable.

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.

I think ihave a audio on my monitor,so shoud it work


Hi,

I see that you believe that you monitor has a built in speaker on it, if your monitor does have built in speakers on it then the only way to make the speaker get audio from the monitor is to have it hooked up on your computer using an HDMI cable connecting your monitor to the computer where audio and video will be rendered by the HDMI port providing Video and Audio to your monitor.

But if your monitor does not have HDMI on it or you computer does not have an HDMI port then that will be an issue, if your computer does not have an HDMI port then getting an expansion Video card that has one will make thing work for you and get you audio out of your monitor.

If you are only using VGA or a DVI cable connecting your computer to the monitor then audio will not come out as it should on the monitor.

I hope this will be informational and helpful to your concern.

have a nice day,

Why is the sound not working on my acer screen


How do you have the screen plugged in?
If via HDMI, audio should go to your screen, but you may need to output to speakers (that is, if your monitor does not have built-in speakers).
If indeed outputting via HDMI, make sure your computer KNOWS it's supposed to output audio through the HDMI port as well as the video.
Finally, you might just need to plug speakers/headphones into the monitor - most have an audio jack on the underside, by the stand.

Hi lucasthehack,

I would like to help regarding your concern about the Audio issue you are experiencing with your LCD monitor using HDMI.

Since you are using HDMI you really do not need to look for an audio out to get sounds out of your LCD monitor.

- On your screen you will see a speaker Icon wherethe time is, right click on the speaker Icon then select Playback Devices.

- In the Playback Device Window you will see HDMI on the top of the list right click on it and click set as default, this will give you aduio out from the HDMI connection.

Restart you system with the HDMI conencted to the LCD monitor this should make the changes we made work using HDMI video and audio on your LCD monitor.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

I just bought an X223W LCD monitor for my computer and there's no sound. My previous audio cable has no place to plug into this monitor. How am I supposed to get sound?


Your previous monitor had built-in speakers. The Aces LCD monitor do not have built-in speakers, therefore you need to purchase external speakers and plug these into your computer.

I want to hook up external speakers to my Acer H213H for when my PS3 is hooked up to it.


What method are you using to connect to the monitor?

If you are using the HDMI -> DVI adapter it does not support sound. HDMI does, but DVI does not.

If that's the way you are set up then all you need to do is use the HDMI -> DVI adapter for your video and use the regular RCA connections for audio.

You can set the video and audio settings in the PS3 with the "Display Settings" and "Sounds Settings"

That way you just use the red and white RCA ends to connect to a speaker system, the yellow won't be in use at all.

No sound driver on acer x223w how do i download


This is not a sound monitor, it does NOT have built in speakers. You need to have external speakers that plug into the audio jack in the back of your motherboard.

If this monitor did have sound, then you do NOT use an additional cable, you do not use DVI and HDMI at the same time.

HDMI is for graphics and sound, and you also need a graphics card that has a HDMI port to buy a monitor with sound, or you can't use it.

Monitors do not need drivers, most all OS, Windows have a monitor driver and there is no better monitor driver then the one in windows.

The drivers for sound come from the graphics card that has HDMI.

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.
    Figure 1: Example of Onboard Audio menu

    An option window opens.
  5. Press the down arrow key to select Enabled , and then press the Enter key.

  6. Press the F10 key. Select Yes to save the default settings, and then press the Enter key.
  7. The computer restarts. HDMI sound is now enabled.
