Re: no audio sound

Run the software that came witht he monitor, then check if you are sending the signal to the monitor and not your old soundcard.There should be

open "Open volume control" on the speaker icon in lower right corner of your screen.

click options/Properties

the "mixer device combo box" will give you all the options you can send the sound signal to, in my case realtek audio, webcam.

the acer LCD should be there, if not try to figure out why.

I dont have an acer monitor, but this should get you going in the right direction.

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.

Why is the sound not working on my acer screen

How do you have the screen plugged in?
If via HDMI, audio should go to your screen, but you may need to output to speakers (that is, if your monitor does not have built-in speakers).
If indeed outputting via HDMI, make sure your computer KNOWS it's supposed to output audio through the HDMI port as well as the video.
Finally, you might just need to plug speakers/headphones into the monitor - most have an audio jack on the underside, by the stand.

HP w2207 has built-in speakers (Integrated rear facing). All you have to do is connect the LCD and PC (Sound output) using Audio Cable (Stereo).
For further information you may refer to HP w2207 User Guide (Page-19)

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

I just bought an X223W LCD monitor for my computer and there's no sound. My previous audio cable has no place to plug into this monitor. How am I supposed to get sound?

Your previous monitor had built-in speakers. The Aces LCD monitor do not have built-in speakers, therefore you need to purchase external speakers and plug these into your computer.

No sound

Only _some_ LCD monitors have built-in speakers.

For those that do, you'll need a cable between the "audio-out" port on your computer's sound-card and the "audio-in" port on your LCD monitor, to transmit the sound. Of course, you'll have to turn-up the volume on the LCD's speakers, above zero percent.

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 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 coming from speakers.

Did you run the audio cable from the computer to the monitor. If not you must have that for the speakers to work. If yes can you verify computer output with another pair of speakers to narrow it down to computer or monitor. If it is the monitor built in speakers that are the problem reply and we can go through a procedure to get them working.

Installed new monitor, lost my sound

If your previous monitor had built in speakers and your new monitor does not you are going to have to purchase new speakers. If your new lcd monitor has an audio input you can purcahse a sterio mini jack cable for under $10 at any store that sells computer stuff (circuit city, best buy, walmart, target, etc). Simply plug one end into your monitor and the other end into your computers audio output jack (usually color coded green). Now of course if that monitor does not have built in speakers your only option is to purcahse a set of speakers for the computer. These usually start at around $15.
