Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Replaced old CRT with Acer X223wbd on my Dell Dimension 3000 w/Windows XP system. Looks good but no sound through my external speakers. What could be the problem? Not a computer expert-
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.
