Re: Sound?

Open your device manager and click on the sound icon (sometimes it resembles a music note) what ever is in the drop down list, it would say card if it doesn't show a card then you have integrated sound. nother way is to look in the back of your pc and find the speaker hook-ups, when you find them open your pc case and find the location of the speaker jacks, if there on the main board then you have integrated sound and no card.

How do you get speakers to work

you have to plug in a patch cable from the sound card out into the sound "in" plug that is on the back of your monitor. Sound does not go through the monitor cable. it only carries video. You have to bring the audio signal in by use of another cable dedicated just to the sound. It is a double male-mini-din cable. Radio Shack or Bestbuy or computer store will have one, just tell the clerk that you need a sound card double male patch cable. $5.
Thank you,

Need the sound drivers for the monitor

You do not need sound driver for the monitor, but you do need the sound card driver for your sound card. Your monitor has powered speakers built-in, you just need to connect the green mini stereo jack from sound card audio out to monitor audio line in and adjust the volume control at both monitor and the PC.

I hear absolutely no sound and when i go to turn it up it tells me i have no sound device registered

Is your sound card installed? Maybe it needs an updated driver. Go to Device Manager and see what that says about your sound. If that's all good, then you probably either have a bad connection with you plug in.

Monitor shows nothing can hear the sound effect when asus logo should appear and nothing black screen

Try to hook the computer to another monitor, this will tell us if the video card on the motherboard is shot, or just the screen is bad.

I have a AL1912 LCD monitor but it does not have sound, do I need to purchase speakers?

You don't need external speakers with this model, what you need is check that your audio cable is connected to the "LINE OUT" jack on your pc's audio card. And the other end to the monitor's "LINE IN" jack
You can chek volume and other audio settings here: Start --> Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Device properties
Under "Voice" menu you can test if your sound card and drivers work properly. Let me know what you find out...

No sound

Hello Yellowbones.. First off.. are you sure your cable is plugged into the appropriate jack on the back of your computer? If it is.. then do you have a spare set of speakers that you can plug into that jack to determine if it is teh speakers or the sound card? If you have a set of other speakers, try that first so we can confirm that it is a problem from your ausio driver versus the speaker set itself.. On the assumption that the sound card is the blame.. You may want to verify that hardware is working properly. You shopuld be able to go into the control panel from the Start menu and find Sounds and Audio Device menu.. once you have that.. make sure you do not have your system set to Mute... and then you can select the hardware tab and find your sound card device in the listing.. once you highlight that, it should tell you if your device is working properly or not.. and give you a troubleshooting tab to walk you thru some diagnostics.. You may also select the driver tab and update the driver for your card to see if that resloves the problem too.

Do I need a driver for my speakers?

Your speakers will only function with an audio input from the PC.
So the sound card needs its driver.
If it is an onboard[part of the mother board] sound card then it resides on the utilities disk or you can download it typically Realtek 97 seems common here.
If the card is an separate entity [in a PCI slot t]then check out where the driver is for that -on a CD somewhere in your pile I guess.

Monitor occasionally makes a "trilling" sound

cheap sound card. upgrade to an audigy or even a sound blaster. You can try reducing the volume control on the internal mixer from all the way up to about 2/3 and that will help. If it's not up all the way on the main volume already- then the sound card is cheap- and has no filtering on the inputs. A better sound card generally fixes this.

Unable to install my monitor;no sound, grainy graphics...

You need to install drivers for all your hardware (video card, sound card, modem, etc..) Drivers are a piece of software that tells the computer how to use hardware components, they contain all the instructions a computer needs to turn on and use the components. Do you have a driver disc that came with these parts or the computer itself? If not the only thing I can tell you is find out the make and model of the hardware components, then visit the manufactures web sites for the drivers. Without drivers you computer dosn't know how to operate hardware properbly or at all. It needs them.
