SOURCE: X2Gen Monitor speakers not working

This sounds like a straight hardware issue. However, to be certain, try to attach another monitor to this PC, and if it works properly, you will know that there is nothing wrong with the graphics card/driver or other related component of the PC involved. (Also make sure you are using the proper type of cable - analog/digital - for the connection.) Also suggest switching out cables to eliminate that. Further, you could try to see if the monitor functions properly when attached to another machine. If the machine is not functional and another is, that will confirm that the issue is hardware-based.
Unfortunately, X2Gen has declared bankruptcy (see and there is no way to go back to the manufacturer for either support or warranty service. If you are still within a given time frame with either the retailer, or perhaps through a credit card company, this would be your best recourse. Here is the link to the form via which you could file a bankruptcy claim: Hope this may help, if you can't get reimbursed through some other means.
My experience with this type of issue is that the hardware has gone bad. Particularly with the nature of your problem, it seems that it is not a minor problem, and does not appear to involve drivers or other software-type fixes. If you could get a professional tech to repair it, the cost would most likely be more than replacement of the monitor. Sorry for the bad news, but I don't think there is a better solution.

If the monitor continues to behave in the same manner, I think that is absolute confirmation that you have a "nonnegotiable" hardware issue. If not - in other words, if you see something different with switch of connections/machines, there could be a graphics card/driver or other issue that we could work on further.

Please post back if you need additional assistance, or this does not answer all your questions. Otherwise, thanks for using and rating FixYa!

How do I turn on monitor speakers

Hi Anonymous,

Typically, the speakers need to be plugged into the green audio port on the back of your computer, or use HDMI cable, if your system can use one.

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 purchased a X2gen 15'' monitor and can not make the speakers work. Do I just need to purchase a ''y'' audio connector and plug it into the audio jacks for left and right speakers? bjsworld

If there are ports to plug a cable into, you need to connect the monitor speakers to your PC via those ports. A Y cable would probably do it. The standard monitor cable does not carry sound to speakers in a monitor.

No sounds are coming from the speakers. We have tried restarting, turning off the screen and turning it back on, and even uplugging the speakers and plugging them back in...what is the problem?

replace the cable going from the cpu to the monitor. this can be the only solution other than an internal issue with the monitor, or speaker failure
