Question about AOpen F55JS (Black, Silver) 15" LCD Monitor

Do I need a driver for my speakers?

So I just re-formatted my home-made computer- in hindsight... I probably didn't prepare as much as I thought I did. In any event, I got everything up and running, my old version of windows XP pro installed back up, beginning to get all my updates (including SP2) re-installed, and although I have all the cables hooked up... my speakers on my monitor won't go anymore. Kind of a bummer. Maybe do I need a driver? If anything came WITH the monitor 4 years ago... I don't have it any more. Why won't my speakers recognize??

Re: Do I need a driver for my speakers?

Ok " if your sound card is built in to the board and you put in a
PCI sound card in , you have to go into Bios and reset it for pci.

When you start your computer up look on the monitor , it will tell you to hold down a certain key to to get in to Bios , then you can reset it.

also you can find out what sound card you have and down load the driver from that Company.
go to there web site.

Re: 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 worked fine. Ok with other type monitors. This brand or format seems to be issue. Drivers are current. System restore didn't work.

Make sure your monitor is plugged in all the way to the correct plugins. If you have a graphics card then you will need an adapter for that.

There is no sound in my dell e198fp

Either is problem with speakers or with your software. So just right click on speaker icon in notification area and open playback devices and see if you can see your speaker. and then right click and then select test. If you cant see your speaker in the list, you probably have driver problems and u need to install all necessary audio drivers, if you can see it bt cant listen anything, there is a prob wid ur speakers.

While uninstalling unnecessary software I probably uninstalled my speakers and now I do not have sound on my PC my speakers are built in the ACER AL1917 screen can you please help me

There is no such thing as speaker driver, but more likely you have uninstalled the sound card driver or it got corrupted, that will be the first place to check. Please download the driver from your PC maker website and install it. You should also look at the devices manager to see if the sound card is present.

Hello the speaker on my viewsonic vg700b are not working is there anyway to fix that?

Yes. It probably is, but you need to take the monitor to a specialized workshop to check the buzzers and all the speaker components. It is not a thing to do it alone at home. If you need further assistance or have further questions please leave a comment. Cheers

I have a Sharp LCD Monitor LL-172C I upgraded my computer and no longer have sound from the speakers. Someone told me to download a driver but I am unable to find a listing for this model.

For the sound to work, you do not need the driver for the monitor, driver is for the display resolution adjustment.
Do you have the correct sound driver installed in your PC? All you need to get sound to the monitor is an audio cable with stereo miniphone pugs at each end. Do you get sound if you use the PC POWERED speakers attach to your PC?
Give us more details how you have it setup.

Hp monitro speakers not working


I think the sound drivers of your monitor may have got corrupted after formatting and hence you are facing the issue of speakers not working. Please try to rest the Monitor by turning off the monitor then press and hold the menu button and while you are still holding the menu button turn on the monitor and hold it still for 2 minutes. If the problem persists then you need to download the new drivers for your monitor from and install them to resolve the issue you are facing with.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Speakers through realtek audio

you need to install the sound driver in order to get the sound from your system.....once u format the harddrive, you need to install all the drivers ie in technical terms its called CVAN which is Chipset, Video, Audio & Network drivers.....go install them all from the cds of your hardware and enjoy the difference.....cheers!
