If yesterday it worked fine then restore the system. That should fix the issue.
Else you need the driver cd to install back the audio driver.

Let me know .... Thanks Kevin.

My computer is a SyncMasterP2570HD i cant get any sound to come out but it is detecting sound how do i fix it


The Samsung SyncMaster P2570hd is a monitor with speakers; it isn't the computer itself. I'll assume that you are dealing with a computer connected to the monitor and not a set-top box. Make sure that Mute is not enabled on the computer. There should be an icon on the lower right hand side of a Windows desktop. If the mute is enabled, it will have a red circle with a diagonal line through it. Left click on the icon to remove the mute (change the volume or click on the mute icon). Test the monitor's speakers by connecting it to another device with known good audio output.

Next how are you connecting the monitor to the computer (VGA, DVI or HDMI)? If you are using VGA or DVI (including DVI to HDMI), you need to connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the speaker (green port on the back of a sound card) or headphone jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor. The audio input jack is between the DVI and VGA ports. You can test the output of the speaker jack on the computer with regular computer speakers. Plug in the power cord (or USB cable) for powered speakers. If the free-standing speakers work, check the volume setting on the monitor with the +/- buttons to the right of the menu button. Do not press menu first, though. If that doesn't solve the problem, continue using the separate speakers. (Unless the monitor is still under warranty, it usually isn't worth taking apart a monitor to replace the speakers. You may be able find replacement parts online.)

If you are using an HDMI cable, check the output audio setting to see if the HDMI audio is available. For Windows, click on Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound (Windows 7). Then click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. In the Playback tab, check what available audio devices you have. Make the HDMI the default device by right-clicking on it and selecting Make this the default device. (Other versions of Windows will a slightly different route to this panel.) You may need to restart the computer to get the audio signal on the HDMI cable after setting this. Note: not all video cards/computers support HDMI audio. If you don't see HDMI listed in the Playback devices, connect an audio patch cable as with a VGA or DVI cable, described above. Use stand-alone speakers if the monitor's speakers are bad.

I hope this helps.

(I have had the speakers fail in monitors; <$30 separate speakers are an adequate replacement for those built into a flat panel monitor.)

How do I get the sound through my LG M197WD Flat screen monitor when using it with my PC? Sound is fine when using it as a TV!


What video cable are you using between the TV and the computer? If you are using a VGA, DVI or DVI-HDMI cable, you need to connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cord between the computer's audio out and the PC audio in on the TV. The audio out on the computer will be the speaker (green) port on the back of a desktop or the headphone jack. (Make sure that this jack works by connecting a different set of computer headphones or speakers to the computer.) The audio in jack on the TV is above the RGB input; it's just to the left of the digital audio out.

Check that the correct audio output is selected. From the Hardware and Sound Control Panel, look at Manage Audio Devices and the Playback option. If your computer has an HDMI port, that may have become the default audio output device. Change this setting. (Not all TVs can accept HDMI signals from a computer but a number of video cards are encoding this as the default during install.) Try a new audio patch cable between the TV and the computer.

If another set of speakers doesn't work, you need to check the drivers for your computer. In the Device Manager (click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager), scroll down to the section for Sound controllers and expand it. Then check for updates for the audio driver. If necessary, uninstall the driver (by right clicking on the audio driver). Then shut down the computer and restart it.

The manual for the M197WD is available from LG here: http://www.lg.com/uk/it-products/monitors/LG-tv-monitor-M197WD.jsp . Click on the support tab and the link is on the right side of the page.

My directions are for Windows 7; it's slightly different for other versions of Windows.

I hope this helps. Please post a comment with the video connection that you are using if you need additional assistance.

Our Compaq desktop computer has internal speakers. For some reason there is no playback sound coming from them though. We bought a new, green audio cord to connect to the CPU and monitor. This still...


Hello
Sounds like the drivers for your audio device are missing or corrupt.

Go to control panel/audio or sound devices and make sure your device is listed and checked to enable.

Next go to Hp compaq.com and find which sound device is in your pc.
Download and install drivers for sound.

Or if you have the cd or dvd that came with the pc the drivers should be on there.

I purchased a new computer and after hooking everything up, everything works except I have no audio. I believe the speakers are internal to this monitor.


Double check that you have the speaker cable plugged into the proper jack (audio out - green) on the computer. Make sure that the audio hasn't been muted and that it is set for the correct output type (if you have a multi-channel audio option).

Try a standalone set of speakers to check if the audio driver for the on-board audio or sound card is working.

I hope this helps.

(I've found that the integrated speakers will fail before the monitor does. Since the integrated speakers are low-end and similar speakers are fairly cheap, get new speakers of a quality you like. Repairing the speakers isn't worth it.)

Can not get audio working on hp2159m


Has sound been working in the past? If so - it's possibly a hardware issue but not always.I'll presume you're using Windows XP as the operating system.


Check these in the following order:

1. Check that windows volume is not muted. Depending on version of Windows, you may have a volume icon in the bottom right hand corner - it looks like a speaker - and if muted there will be a red circle over it.

2. Go to Windows Control Panel and Sound and Audio Devices settings.Check all volume are maximum.

3. Check that the right device is being used to output the sound by checking in Control Panel > Sound and Audio Devices > Audio tab. There are drop down lists. Check that Default Device is your soundcard (usually something like Soundblaster or similar.

4. It could be your Windows sound drivers. You need to go to HP website and look around for drivers.

5. Hope this helps and please report back how it goes...

First unplug the speakers, and then go to the page of the manufacturer's,.
if you cannot find the disc with the drivers.,and download s new copy of the drivers..
Then install it and then shut down the computer and plug in the speakers.. that should do IT.

Igot REALY old speakers that used to worke perfectly well


The speakers themselves are probably not your problem. Some speakers use the USB connection while others use the Audio output jack of your sound card. The problem is likely with your sound card (assuming you use the Audio output jack). If you rebuilt your computer, chances are you're missing the device driver for your sound card (these are small programs that let your hardware talk to your operating system). You'll need to download the correct device driver for your exact sound card. You probably don't know the sound card make/model. You can download Belarc Advisor (www.belarc.com) which will scan your PC for all hardware and software. Once you have that report, you should be able to go to the sound card manfucturer's website and download the latest device driver. You can always find out if it's the speakers by connecting them to another computer. Good luck.

I have acer al1917w A monitor but no sound


There is no sound driver, they are speakers, they work off of the audio output jack on the back of your PC, on the motherboard. If you have the sound drivers installed for the motherboard, and no sound, then you have plugged the monitor audio cable into the wrong jack on the PC, or you have the settings wrong just as MIKE said above.

No Sound


ATI is the graphics card developer. Your motherboard has onboard audio that appears to be Realtek. You should not have an ATI sound driver... as they don't exist.

I'm assuming you're using WinXP to make thing simple. If you're using Vista, try to do the equivalent.

Since your graphics card is capable of HDMI, the problem could be that the card expects to output audio through your graphics card rather than the sound card. Check start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and audio. -> Sounds and Audio Devices /or/ Adjust Speaker Settings -- go to the Audio tab and make sure it says Realtek for output. If it shows more than one output device, set it to realtek. If it doesn't show realtek, follow the below instructions, and then double check at the end that the Output device is set to Realtek.

1>Please go to HP's site and download their Audio drivers.
2>Go to Device manager -> Sound, Video, and game controllers.
2.1> Does it have an entry saying "Realtek blah blah Audio" there? If not, what entries does it have for audio? Ignore Audio Codecs and Legacy Audio Drivers.
2.2>If there's nothing there, you need to install the drivers you downloaded. If there is something there, please continue to #3.
2.3>After installing the driver, restart computer.
2.4>Once computer is restarted, go start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and audio. -> Sounds and Audio Devices /or/ Adjust Speaker Settings. Hit the button labeled Advanced and adjust the speaker setup to whatever you have - surround sound, 5.1, quad, stereo, whatever.
2.5> Go to #5
3> If there is anything that says Realtek/Azalia Audi, right click it and Uninstall.
3.1> Restart computer.
4>Install audio driver you downloaded, and perform #2.4.
5>Find the driver icon (there's probably on in the task tray) or find it under start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and audio. Set your speaker settings there as well. Audio I/O should specify what ports go to what speakers What you set in windows should match the Realtek audio manager's speaker setup.

If problem persists, please report this.
