Re: no sound from monitor
Try to re-install your audio driver !! Also go to add and remove and remove media player and then go and re-install windows media player again( probably a newer version ) should work!!! swampratt200 AAAEEE!!!!!

The sound goes out of the computer to a set of speakers. If the monitor has speakers built into it, then the sound comes out of them. Each computer must have a connection to the sound card (the little green hole) to speakers. If you want sound from the second computer, unplug the sound cable from the one computer and plug it into the other one.
You don't write which operating system you use, but generally you should be able to choose where the sound output goes in the Sound Properties in Control Panel. If however Sony decided to put some special software that does the thinking for you, and directs the sound output via the HDMI when connected, then you have to dig deeper...
Have you checked through the setup controls on the flat panel. I've seen a few that had the audio turned off by default. That is sometimes done because it generates static noice if there is no audio sourced coming through them.
I was afraid of that. The speaker system is only half in the monitor the other part(Amplifier section) was in your old computer. Here is a possible solution. Buy an external sound /speaker system. The amplifier comes with it and many can be had at a reasonable cost at **** places as Walmart , target ,etc. Sorry. but the speakers on
your monitor, I believe , will not work with you new computer. Sorry.
If your old monitor was a Compaq, it had slots for the speakers to hang on and provided the power for the speakers. The speakers still got their input from a cable that plugged into the computer sound output jack. If those speakers are the style Compaq supplied when I worked at a Compaq service shop, they originally came with metal stands that fit into slots on the back so you could stand them up on their own, and a 12-volt power adapter so you could use them without the monitor. If you don't have those pieces, you can buy a suitable power adapter (12 volts DC at 1 amp) at Radio Shack but the speaker stands are hard to find. You could try eBay, or just make a holder of some kind. (A friend of mine used those little wooden stands you can buy to display plates to hold her speakers when she got a new monitor. They worked out pretty well.)
Or you can replace the speakers. A new set would have everything you need. But those Compaq speakers sounded pretty good, so if they're still working you might want to keep them.
If your monitor have inbuilt speaker, then you need not to plug it, because the monitor cable will work for that. I have ViewSonic 19" with inbuilt speaker and its working without any extra cable or connection.
