Question about HP Pavilion F1703 17" LCD Monitor

Hp f1703 with speaker power supply now speakers don't work

I just had the mother board (HP KELUT DW236-69001) in my hp pavilion a545c replaced. When I reconnected all of the computer components I had no sound. After spending hours researching audio problems and making sure all of my settings and drivers were correct I noticed the monitor's power button light was not light up even though the monitor is working. Since my speakers get power directly from the monitor I am wondering if the problem is related. The speaker light is on so I know they are getting power, I just wonder if there is some additional association that is causing the problem. My monitor driver is also up to date. I am stumped! Can anyone suggest what I can try next? Could it be the mother board?

    The monitor is a hp pavilion f1703. The speakers are harmon/kardon. Not sure of the model. Nothing definitive on the speakers themselves. Possibly HP 5187-2105. They power cord is perfectly in tack. It is a 12V DC that plugs directly into the back of the monitor with a female type of connector.

    All of the power cords and wires are in good shape. The speaker light is on so I know they are getting power. There is just no sound.

    I had the mother board replaced at a local computer repair business so I don't know if I have a agp card or not. They also replaced the power supply. If they loosened the video card during the repair would my monitor even be working now?

  • chinson4 Mar 15, 2009

    Would the video card control the speaker sound?

  • chinson4 Mar 15, 2009

    I have checked and rechecked my connections, settings and drivers. All are correct and up to date.

You have to install all the sound drivers whenever you change hard drive.

If you have'nt install sound driver's, the speaker light would come on as there is nothing wrong with settings or speakers.

Install the sound driver from the CD that you might have recieved when you purchase the unit.

If they were previously working the speakers may have blown and need to be replaced. As for the light not being powered up the speakers mare share power with the button if so try to get the power from another source.

Ensure that the computer audio out is connected to monitor and then to the speakers.

Test the computer with additional directly connected speakers to the green jack socket at the back of computer to test if computer audio is working.

Try unpluging and plugging again the audio cable that runs from the audio card to the monitor and, if aplicable, the audio cable that runs from the monitor to your speakers.
Goo Luck!!!!

    Try using a headphone or another pair of speakers on the the audio jack at the back of your computer. If you don't get audio from the other headphone/speakers aswell then your sound card is faulty else there is something wrong with your harmon kardon speakers.

HP Pavilion f1703 screen goes suddenly black


After reading a number of posts regarding this problem, I disconnected the speaker from the screen electric outlet meant for this purpose, thinking it may have been pulling a bit too much amperage to the detriment of the screen. I am going to hook a small transformer to feed the speakers directly thereby bypassing the electric feed from the screen itself. Hope it continues to work. I will let you know if it doesn't.
