Re: No sound coming out of the speakers
This sounds like a driver or settings issue. Go into control panel and open up the sound and audio devices control. Go to audio and make sure that the proper sound card is selected for playback and recording. If you don't see your card listed in the drop down menu, try reinstalling drivers for your sound card or Sometime the driver might be for different version of windows. I've seen vista driver install properly in winxp, but no sound. Either that sometime it's the OEM driver provided by the chipset/soundchip manufacturer but differ from the one supply by board. Maybe the board manufacturer implemented a special design, thus the OEM default driver will not work. Other than that, it could also be the version conflict with another driver. Say your sound card driver is the older one, but you've updated your chipset driver to a newer one since your last install. The old sound card driver might not be compatible with the new chipset driver and so on.
Try download a full set of drivers for your system, that way you're sure all your driver is up to date

FIrst, cover the basics.
1) Is it plugged into an active power source?
2) Is the monitor attached to the computer as described in any quick setup guide coming with the monitor or computer?
3) Has the monitor been turned on?
4) Is the monitor recognized as a device by the computer?
5) Does any other monitor work with your computer?
6) Have you swapped cables to see if the cabling is bad?
7) Have you tried attaching the monitor to another computer to see if the monitor comes on?
9) Does the monitor LED light come on showing it is powered?
You see, the problem could be in the computer, in the cabling, or in the monitor, or at the wall switch where you plug in power. People kick out power plugs, pull out cabling, etc. accidentally. That is why you have to check the basics.
If the power supply built into the monitor is blown, you are out of luck. But do not assume that is the problem until you eliminate the basics above.
Any changes to the hardware or software before you got this? Anyone been playing with the brightness setting?
You have to narrow down what might be the problem.
selectbanker, As a test only try this. Remove green plug from rear of pc. Find old am/fm stereo transistor radio or even a portable cd player and connect the green plug to your "new" audio source. Can you hear anything coming out of the monitor's speakers? Also try a set of stereo headphones in the green audio "out" jack to see if sound is coming out of the pc. Narrow down where loss of signal occurs first. 12fixlouie

Make sure that the audio cable from the computer is in the correct audio output (small green socket) and connected into the monitor. You can test the monitor speakers with an MP3 player or a smartphone. Also check that the volume on the monitor is up.
Sample testing is usually a firmware built into the monitor amplifier
ie the monitor is testing itself.
you problem possibly lies with the computer sound system.
Tell me more about this.
Is it an 'On-board' sound card or separate PCI card.
You can determine this by looking at the back of the computer- if all the connectors - sound- PS2 and USB are in the same panel - then it is an on-board system.
If the sound is separate in one of the card position then it is a PCI card.
The possibility is the sound system needs setting up- check your computer paperwork/manual and utilities disk for Audio drivers.
