22" HDTV Gateway monitor volume control

Just bought this awesome monitor. It's also a stand-alone HDTV, so we hooked it up as a TV and started watching it. It has internal speakers, but no volume control, even on the sidebar menu, and it's very loud, so unless everyone in the house is either awake or passed out, I can't watch it. There is an extra item I can order for $30 that will add a control to it, but I can't believe they would sell a TV with no volume control. I will also be hooking it up to a computer. Tech support told me this monitor has no speakers in it, but I'm telling you it does and it's very loud. Anyone know what to do? It's a 2275 model, brand new as of 7-7-07. Three people have turned it upside down and all around and there is NO volume control, only USB ports and cable/wire hookups. The touch menu on the sidebar does not have a volume choice.

Re: 22" HDTV Gateway monitor volume control

I have the same monitor. There is a way to turn down the volume for the internal speakers. Go to Main menu on the monitor, Advance settings, then into Audio Feed Back. Then adjust the volume from there.

Re: 22" HDTV Gateway monitor volume control

Well that is weird isn't it? As far as hooking to the PC is concerned volume is easy- control it from the PC. In a normal audio set up - Hi-Fr/Radio/TV there are in fact two amplifiers. One is the preamp to imports all the bass /treble and all that and volume. the out put amp - plain vanilla flat power I suggest that this is the case with this screen it has no pre amp it relies on an external Audio input .

How do I convert a Westinghouse 22" LCM-22w3 DVI/VGA LCD Monitor into an HDTV?

Dear Amy,

Normally, monitors do not have tuning electronics for capturing TV signals.
Therefore, consider the monitor as a "dumb" unit that only displays information coming from your computer. Also, this unit does not have a HDMI input, but only VGA.
So, you are fated to have this monitor connected to your computer, always.
Now, you may find good software that will "tune" the TV signals from streaming at the Internet and show whatever is being broadcast. The same way you can access YouTube and watch videos these TV tuners will get the streaming signals the TV stations send via Internet (not all do that) and watch the channel in your PC/monitor
Since I do not have additional information about the computer you use I cannot give you other ideas
I hope I have helped you.

Need more volume on computer speakers

Buy yourself some stand alone speakers, a base & two side speakers, they cheap these days, base speaker has buit in amplifier & plugs into mains, or get surround sound 5speakers & a base, again mains powered, loud enough to annoy neighbours on full. Built in monitor speakers are renowned feeble tinny sounds. Right click speaker icon, bottom right, on your desktop toolbar, open volume control, ensure volume sliders set to max.

Acer speaker?

There are two possible problems here. (1). The volume control on your monitor is turned down. With the button on the front of your monitor, find the menu/option button, and look for volume control (2) The volume coming out of your computer is low. Double click on the speaker at the bottom right of your screen, located on the start bar. Use the sliders to change the volume. This should fixya up.

Good Luck!
