How do you hook up sound from surface rt to acer monitor 2014

To connect anything to the speakers on your acer monitor you need to use an audio patch cable that has 1/8 inch or mini headphone jacks on each end. Like this one.
5mm Male to Male Stereo Audio Cable...

You connect one end to the headphone jack on your Surface RT and the other to the audio in jack on the monitor. Make sure the power is on for the monitor and that the volume on both is a third or half way up and you should be able to hear the sound.
This is for the monitors user manual.

What do i need too buy too get sound on my monitor,no cords came with it too hook up too computer?thank you.

If the monitor does have the audion line input jack (it should be labeled with 'AUDIO IN' or something like that and it will usually be green clor jack, then all you need is an audio cable with mini stereo phone jack at each end, one plug will go to the monitor audio in, the pther will go to the PC audio out (green) jack. You can set the monitor volume at 1/2 level to start with first.<br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><a href=""></a></span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"> </span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'"><a href=""></a></span><br />

Cannot make speakers work

You need to use audio cable with ministereo phone plug at both ends of the cable, then one end is plugged into the monitor audio line in jack (usually Green color), another end of the cable will be plugged into the audio line out (Green color) of the PC. Set the volume level to about 1/2 way at first and then adjust the volume control panel (Master volume and WAVE level, these two controls affect the sound output feeding the monitor) on the PC.

You can try feeding the monitor with MP3 player first to make sure the monitor speakers are working properly first.

There is no sound coming from monitor, so i cant listen to music

You need to find out of the problem is in the monitor or in the PC. Try feeding the audio into the monitor with MP3 player or CD player to see if you get the sound, if you do, then you need to see if the sound card driver is installed, etc. Post back so we can guide you further.

Built in speakers

I'd guess there is a jack socket 'audio in' somewhere on the montitor, probably on the back. (Don't confuse it with the headphone socket, which usually looks the same.) Connect it with a 3,5" stereo jack-jack cable to your PC's audio output.

Monitors need power cords to function, & there is nowhere near enough power in the data cable to power the monitor. So, it sounds like the power cable got pulled out somehow and is now lying on the floor. The power cable will be a small plug like you have on a radio or other similar devices instead of the standard sized plug that older monitors have. Once you plug the power cord back in, it should be fine.

Good luck!

No audio


Pls check if the audio settings on the monitor are correct. Along with the monitor menu button, there will be another button for audio for some models. For other models the audio option will be available in the menu button itself.

Pls check with another set of powered speakers and not headphones.

Also check for the drivers and any driver updates for your sound card.

Hope this helps fix your problem.

Picture but no sound on Hyvision LCD monitor MV190

I had the same problem. The speakers are mounted below the the LCD Monitor. There is no internal connection between the speakers and the TV Audio. There should have been a short patch cord in your box having one jack on one end and two wires with mono jacks on the other. Plug the stereo jack into the audio out on the monitor and then plug the other jacks into the left and right side of the speakers (the wires should be marked L and R). If you cannot find the jack, I'm sure that you can find one on line or get one from Radio Shack.
