How do I connect speakers

to connect speakers: You look at the back of your computer, there will be several small holes, most are color coded. the green hole is the output for speakers.
there is usually also a small arrow pointing away from the hole, this is the icon for OUTPUT. Other holes will have an icon for INPUT and for microphones.
If you have trouble seeing these things, you can just plug your speakers into the first hole. Goto YouTube and play a video, If you hear sound you have the right output. If no sound, try the speakers in the next hole. Continue until you hear the sound. ( this will not hurt the computer or the speakers )
NOTE: make sure the volume is turned UP on the speakers and the volume is turned UP on the computer.

Can you connect a set of speakers to the acer h223hq monitor

There is a sound cable that plugs into the blue sound hole on the back of the computer, and the other end plugs into the monitor.

No sound through external speakers

Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.

I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.

If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.

Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.

Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.

If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.

Let me know if you have further questions.

I just bought a Acer P191W 19" flat screen monitor. My problem with it is that the sides and bottom half of the srceen are pure white and the rest is a bit too bright and faded.. I need help to fix this...

Do you have any speakers or a fan (table top fan)  of any kind near your screen?
They may not be the shielded kind and may cause magnetic interference.
Have you checked your monitor cable to make sure that none of the pins attaching the cable to the monitor or the PC has been bent?
Please post here to let me know how this turns out.

I have received a new monitor as a gift for my computer. It is the W1934S and I was wondering if I should have sound with this display. I do have speakers from my previous monitor but there does not seem...

It doesn't come with speakers. see for yourself here.

If you want external speakers, connect the speakers to the back of the computer. the port will be a small, round green hole. to connect 2 speakers, you need a 3.5mm splitter.

Hi Colour on my Acer monitor has gone ? Initially everything went green' I've reset monitor settings and some improvement resulted - now the reds are palest yellow Any suggestions tom

most of such cases are not due to problem in monitors... they are problems caused by mother board's or the externally attached graphics/video cards... So in order to make sure which causes problem.. you can try to connect another monitor to your system.. or perhaps your monitor to another system...

If the monitor is faulty colored everywhere.. then the monitor has to be given for repair.. (you cant do it by yourself)
if the other way... any monitor connected to your sys is faultly solored.. then you have to change your video card attached to mother board...

hope this helps your situation..
