Re: Speakers

You need to ensure that the speaker lne cable is connected, this should be a double ended 3.5 jack plug cable, one end plugs into the back of the monitor, the other goes into your speaker port on the motherboard of your computer, sometimes there is a power cable required too

Pavilion 22bw does it have built in speakers?

Troubleshooting Sound Problems with Monitor Speakers

Not all monitors come with built-in speakers. If your monitor does not have built-in speakers, then you will need to connect an audio cable to an external speaker system to hear sound.

I don't have the sound disk anymore and the monitor is not producing any sound. When I try to download the driver my computer says it doesn't recognize my model VA1930wm

The monitor driver is for your computer to recognize all the resolutions your monitor can handle, there is no sound driver for the monitor to work since the monitor built-in powered speakers are jsut that, powered speakers, same as the one you buy if the monitor does not have built-in powered speaker.
You can test the monitor speaker system by feeding it with the MP3 player or any sound sources.
It may have bad power amplifiers IC. You will be better off spending money on a good set of PC powered speaker system that will provide a lot better sound quality than the quarter-size speakers in the monitor.

No sound


Unfortunately, this monitor does not come out with integrated speakers, thus you need to get additional speakers if you need some sound.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

I can not tell in my monitor has speakers

Most monitors do not have built in speakers and the ones that do have them are usually of fair quality. Look for speaker grills under your monitor's screen. Didn't find speaker grills? You can buy computer speakers at a computer store or at Walmart. Your computer, desktop or laptop, has a green jack that you plug a set of speakers into. The volume control may be on the speakers or on your keyboard.

No sound from built in speakers

the built in speakers on the monitor are only speakers, they are not run through the video signal cable and have to be connected separately.
many monitors with speakers provide a stereo cable in the package but dont tell what the cable is for.
If there is a cable provided there will be a small jack on the monitor that connects to audio out on the sound card.
There may also be a stereo plug combined with the video cable, that likewise connects to audio out.
If the hardware is connected, there may be a volume control on the monitor that may be muted.
If the problem is a recent thing for a system that previously had working sound with this monitor, try the mute on the audio settings

No sound on new LG Flatiron Monitor

You need to get a set of powered computer speakers!

I always found that stand alone speakers are much better than the ones in the monitor.
