Question about Acer AL1717 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

No audio I've got an Acer AL1717 17" flat panel monitor and everything is connected as it should be (double and triple checked), yet I get no sound from the speakers. I know I'm getting sound from the computer, because I can use my headphones from the same jack and get all the sound (CD, windows sounds, etc.). I've triple checked all the sound settings and everything appears to be correct (set for monitor speakers etc. - although I've tried every other setting too). Am I missing something? Is this monitor simply not audio enabled even though it has the audio in port and comes with an audio cable?

Re: No audio


Pls check if the audio settings on the monitor are correct. Along with the monitor menu button, there will be another button for audio for some models. For other models the audio option will be available in the menu button itself.

Pls check with another set of powered speakers and not headphones.

Also check for the drivers and any driver updates for your sound card.

Hope this helps fix your problem.

Re: No audio

I had the same problem & discovered that I had to push the jack in the back of the monitor really hard into the plug.

I have lost my speakers on the monitor. Using Microsoft XP, they were working but now they are not. Did some driver updates then lost the sound on the monitor. Checking the control panel indicates that...

Sounds like you've lost audio output from the sound card. Unplug the audio cable from the sound card and plug in a set of ear buds or headphones. If you don't get any sound your driver's not working. Try reinstalling the old driver.

Have VA520 monitor - no sound from it - can't find a way to turn sound on. the computor volumn is on high.

I would double check to see if the audio cable is firmly connected with the computer and the monitor.

Make sure that the audio cable is coming out from the audio out (should be a green jack) and then going into the correct jack on the monitor. If that doesn't work try another audio cable and test.

Hope this helps

Moved pc to another desk . NO SOUND .

double-check your connections. I suspect that you may have plugged your line-out into either mic or line-in.

I have a syncmater 2333 HD and after connecting to my pc, i seemed to have lost all sound. when connecting speakers and earphones, there is still no sound. thanks

Did you plug in the audio cable to the back of the computer? If so, this may have disabled the front audio connections (or vise-versa). Try unplugging the audio cable from the computer (that is connected to the monitor) and see if your headphones work. If so, there is the solution to that problem.

Check the audio connection on the back of the monitor and double check that it is plugged into the correct port on the back of the computer. If the monitor has amplified speakers, it would be a good idea to connect to the 'line-out' connector on your computer. This would avoid disabling your front audio panel.

Lastly, check the volume on your monitor's built in speakers. This monitor can double as an LCD television, so it most likely has a separate volume control (that defaults to 0).

Acer monitor x193w, no sound.

Please try to check the sound device status if its working properly thru right click My Computer icon > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager > (double click) Sound, Video & Game Controller OR System Device > System Speaker. also, take note of the Troubleshoot tab. If still it doesn't work, I think you have to reinstall the sound driver (from its motherboard software CD if it's built-in type). best regards

Hannspree HF259H Audio (sound) Problem

I connected an audio cable from my sound card to the audio unput on the monitor and the monitor plays everything as well as my other speakers connected to my sound card. I have a Diamond multimedia sound card (7.1 setting) By the way, the monitor speakers sound "tinny" if the volume setting on the monitor is too high.
