My Westinghouse monitor is not going on but the power light is on do I need another monitor it is 5yrs old or more

It could be your monitor driver card that is bad.
Before you go buy a new monitor, do a quick test on
connecting the monitor to a laptop or portable computer if you have one,
or if you can, get a friend that has one a laptop and use the monitor
signal cable that is already there, and connect it into the
temporary or borrowed computer to see if you get a picture.
Your borrowed computer will need to know that your attaching
and external monitor, so that will need to be done to let the
new computer being used, to know that it is being attached.
If you get a picture, its your old computer driver card.
If it still stays blank, or no picture, then your 5 year old monitor is bad.
Also, but unlikely, it could be the monitor signal cable that
is bad, in that case it will not work on either application.
You could substitute the cable to make sure its not the cable also
for a quick check, on both applications.

Can I use the my old HP speakers with my new HP? The old speakers have a peach, not green, material around the jack. The speakers that are built in with the monitor are working, but I think the old...

If the speakers are detachable from the monitor then try to put it in the jack where you usually put your speakers if you hear any sound it should work .the color coding is usually green but its not mandatory .

What kind of external power supply does the media speaker needs?

Juster-Avia 3D-107 Media speakers.

I wanted to know what kind of external power supply it needed. I open the case and saw 4 diodes which tells me is a bridge rectifier circuit. I also looked at the filter cap and saw ????uF at 28 volts. Therefor, I did the Scientific Wild *** Guess( A.K.A. SWAG METHOD)
12 volts AC out at 1.6 amps or higher.

No speaker hook up on new moniter

If your old monitor was a Compaq, it had slots for the speakers to hang on and provided the power for the speakers. The speakers still got their input from a cable that plugged into the computer sound output jack. If those speakers are the style Compaq supplied when I worked at a Compaq service shop, they originally came with metal stands that fit into slots on the back so you could stand them up on their own, and a 12-volt power adapter so you could use them without the monitor. If you don't have those pieces, you can buy a suitable power adapter (12 volts DC at 1 amp) at Radio Shack but the speaker stands are hard to find. You could try eBay, or just make a holder of some kind. (A friend of mine used those little wooden stands you can buy to display plates to hold her speakers when she got a new monitor. They worked out pretty well.)

Or you can replace the speakers. A new set would have everything you need. But those Compaq speakers sounded pretty good, so if they're still working you might want to keep them.

Compaq computer speakers

Make sure that you have the correct power supply for the speakers. If you are connecting them to a desktop, look for the light green 1/8 plug on the back of the computer. Again, make sure that you have the power supply that came with the speakers. Do not plug the power supply in until you connect the 1/8 plug from the speaker to the light green plug on the back of the computer.
