Sound from monitor speakers distorted and high-pitched

The audio from my Polyview LCD monitor is distorted. Everything comes out high-pitched. I don't know if this is a problem with the speakers in the monitor, my computer, or if some weird setting got switched on somehow.

Re: Sound from monitor speakers distorted and...

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

My GEM GL-1821A Computer monitor has a high pitch squeak that is intermittent in occurrence but sometimes continues for long periods of time. Got any ideas?

A high-pitch squeal is common in CRT TV sets and monitors. I've never run across this in an LCD monitor, but there's a first time for everything. If the sound isn't coming through built-in speakers (if this model has them) and is being caused by the computer, I would suspect the inverter circuitry. This provides power for the backlight, and there are transformers that may have become noisy. Because of their construction, it's possible for them to vibrate internally, and at a frequency that you hear as the high-pitched noise. There isn't a lot you can do to quiet them. When I worked on TV sets, I had mixed success using hot-melt glue to muffle the noise, but usually the only way to completely cure the problem was to replace the parts. It's unlikely you'll find the parts available for a monitor, so all I can suggest is to bear with the noise as long as the monitor is otherwise working properly. Or use this as an excuse to buy a new LCD monitor; they are quite reasonably priced these days.

The speakers sound like an echo and you can't understand what is being said with everything being distorted. The monitor has not been in use for a few months and everything else is working properly, but I...

Have you checked the sound with some other speakers or a headphones.

If the sound is still like echo try adjusting audio settings not thru My Computer - audio, but try finding a software that comes with *********** board/sound card. I suppose the sound is some AC97/Realtek compatible card, so you should looking in your program files under Realtek into WDM and run the Audio Control Panel or Sound Manager (whatever you find). Adjust the sound effects to NONE and use some normal enviroment (other then echo/cave/big hall).

No sound monitor speakers

hmm the monitor is connecting to the pc sound card ...and for that you have to have a sound driver installed...if you know what kinda pc you have its easy ..but if its a built one gonna either look inside to see what is the sound card name ...or try to see if you have a previous sound driver installation .....if you did had sound or still have on the ear pieces you have to have on the monitor too..just see the volume ...and the cable connection ..if it has a separate one (3.2 jack )or it connects directly with a HD cable

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.

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.

Buzzing sound coming from monitor speakers

Check your leads, chances are it's a faulty/dodgy lead coming from your macbook to the system.

No sound

if your monitor has speakers, and it should  built in; then you will see a separate lead with  green plug on the end of it which is to be located in the rear of your pc with the green marked socket.


If theres no lead, then there must be a connector on the rear of the monitor
