You need to check if the green cable from the computer tower is blugged into the back of the monitor (The cable looks the same at both the ends) this is for the output to come through the monitor.
If that is plugged in and if not working, Try a headphone on the tower and check if the sound is coming from the headphone, If yes, You will have to adjust the volume on the monitor or the speaker of the monitor might have gone bad. If there is no sound coming in, Then the problem is with the tower and not the monitor.
There should be a lead plugged from the computer speakers output to the monitor input, usually a 3.5mm stereo plug at each end. Make sure this is actually plugged in at both ends (sockets and plugs are usually Green for speakers).
There is a volume control in the computer, which you may already know about. This is accessed by double-clicking the speaker icon in the system tray (lower right corner of the screen).
The monitor will also have a volume control, accessed via the On-Screen Display (OSD) menu system, using the buttons on the monitor.
selectbanker, As a test only try this. Remove green plug from rear of pc. Find old am/fm stereo transistor radio or even a portable cd player and connect the green plug to your "new" audio source. Can you hear anything coming out of the monitor's speakers? Also try a set of stereo headphones in the green audio "out" jack to see if sound is coming out of the pc. Narrow down where loss of signal occurs first. 12fixlouie
Make sure all your connections are tight and you have power to your speakers...Then go Start>Control Panel>Sound and Hardware>Sound, after you are in here make sure that your speakers are selected as default device.
Hope this helps, pls rate
Have you checked that sound is coming from the computer? Make sure you don't have the output muted and that your volume is turned up. Check the output by plugging in a pair of headphones or another speaker system. If that's all normal, the problem is in the speakers.
The speakers aren't actually a part of the monitor although they do hang on the sides. Check that the audio cable from your computer to the input jack on the right speaker is plugged in at both ends. Check that the power adapter is plugged into a working AC outlet and that the power plug to the speaker is firmly seated. Does the power indicator light when you turn the speakers on? Is the volume control up? Those AC adapters sometimes do fail. The adapter is replaceable if it's gone bad (you can find a suitable one at Radio Shack).
If everything else is checking out and the speakers still have no sound, the amplifier integrated circuit has failed. While this could be repaired, you can probably buy a new set of speakers for what a service shop would charge to replace the amplifier.
On many computers, the output for the sound is very near the output for the monitor. Is it possible that you loosened the wire for the sound when you installed the monitor (plugged it in), or unplugged the sound altogether and plugged it back into the wrong place? The outbound sound hole on most, but not all, computers is green.
All computers have at least two places to plug in sound, most have 3, and the newer machines have 6. If you are unsure which is the correct hole to plug that sound wire into, you can play something on your computer that makes sound for a while (like a song) and move the plug from one to the other until sound is heard.
If you have 6 holes that the sound wire fits, you most likely have software on your computer that pops up and tells you were you have plugged it in.
If the speakers are built into the new monitor, check the monitor for controls and ensure that the volume controls are not all the way down.
All of these solutions are hardware solutions. Now, we have software solutions:
Open the control panel and find Sounds and Audio controls. Open that.
Check to see that nothing has "mute" checked.
Check also to see that the sound levels are high enough to hear something.
First of all, check if your audio cable are still plugged into the monitor and pc output (light green) audio jack. If not just plugged it back in... Still still got no sound... Then turned off the monitor and pc. Unplugged all the cables from the monitor and pc, wait for 10 second till all the surged built up are cleared out. Then you can plugged all the cables back Monitor should have 3 cables, a audio cable, a VGA or DVI cables, and a power cord... OK! now you got all the cables plugged back in...
Turned on the monitor and PC....and a few seconds....you should hear window started. Still... had a problems....just get a external speakers. Have nice day!
