If everything worked before you moved it, I would try checking the simple things 1st.
Make sure that the plug from the speakers is plugged into the correct hole in the back of your computer. Usually, the color of the plug for the speakers and the jack are GREEN.
If the power isn't coming on the speakers, then I would make sure that you have the correct power plug (If the speaker type that you have, has a removable power supply).

What you can to to test out the speakers, is plug the speakers into an IPOD or a MP3 player and test it out.
This will at least eliminate the possiblity that the speakers/wires/power supply are bad.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.

    There still should be another single wire going from the monitor speakers to your computer. Also keep in mind that some monitors with built in speakers need a power supply. So, look around the back and bottom of your monitor and see if there are any open jacks. If there are 2 that are not used, then 1 is for the sound input and the other would be for a power supply.
    Good luck.

My computer is a SyncMasterP2570HD i cant get any sound to come out but it is detecting sound how do i fix it


The Samsung SyncMaster P2570hd is a monitor with speakers; it isn't the computer itself. I'll assume that you are dealing with a computer connected to the monitor and not a set-top box. Make sure that Mute is not enabled on the computer. There should be an icon on the lower right hand side of a Windows desktop. If the mute is enabled, it will have a red circle with a diagonal line through it. Left click on the icon to remove the mute (change the volume or click on the mute icon). Test the monitor's speakers by connecting it to another device with known good audio output.

Next how are you connecting the monitor to the computer (VGA, DVI or HDMI)? If you are using VGA or DVI (including DVI to HDMI), you need to connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the speaker (green port on the back of a sound card) or headphone jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor. The audio input jack is between the DVI and VGA ports. You can test the output of the speaker jack on the computer with regular computer speakers. Plug in the power cord (or USB cable) for powered speakers. If the free-standing speakers work, check the volume setting on the monitor with the +/- buttons to the right of the menu button. Do not press menu first, though. If that doesn't solve the problem, continue using the separate speakers. (Unless the monitor is still under warranty, it usually isn't worth taking apart a monitor to replace the speakers. You may be able find replacement parts online.)

If you are using an HDMI cable, check the output audio setting to see if the HDMI audio is available. For Windows, click on Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound (Windows 7). Then click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. In the Playback tab, check what available audio devices you have. Make the HDMI the default device by right-clicking on it and selecting Make this the default device. (Other versions of Windows will a slightly different route to this panel.) You may need to restart the computer to get the audio signal on the HDMI cable after setting this. Note: not all video cards/computers support HDMI audio. If you don't see HDMI listed in the Playback devices, connect an audio patch cable as with a VGA or DVI cable, described above. Use stand-alone speakers if the monitor's speakers are bad.

I hope this helps.

(I have had the speakers fail in monitors; <$30 separate speakers are an adequate replacement for those built into a flat panel monitor.)

Just moved & set up my computer with HP w2338h monitor with built-in speakers, it does not play sound. I've restored factory settings, checked volume & mute, turned off/on, double checked all...


Try the following:
  • Right click the speaker icon in your icon tray > click playback devices, see if you can see your monitor there as an option, and if so, right click it and click "Set as default device"
Hopefully that helps!

No Sound. We moved the computer and now no sound.


Try checking to see to make sure that the audio jacks are plugged into the right ports. Also, check to make sure that nothing is muted, and that volume is up ( I've actually went for sound without a day after moving my computer because I forgot I had muted and turned my volume all the way down the day before xD )

Anyway, I hope this helps, and let me know if it doesn't.

Oh, and one last thing, make sure that your speakers are set as the primary output devices. If you have 3rd party audio drivers, sometimes you have to set what audio output is going through.

I have the compaq FP 7317 monitor and the speakers on it dont seem to work how can i fix it? i tryed plugging in other speakers but those work either


Make sure that your soundcard is properly installed as are it's drivers. Check to see that sound is not muted. This can be done via the speaker icon in the system tray or from sound in control panel.

I have no sound at all


Have you checked that sound is coming from the computer? Make sure you don't have the output muted and that your volume is turned up. Check the output by plugging in a pair of headphones or another speaker system. If that's all normal, the problem is in the speakers.

The speakers aren't actually a part of the monitor although they do hang on the sides. Check that the audio cable from your computer to the input jack on the right speaker is plugged in at both ends. Check that the power adapter is plugged into a working AC outlet and that the power plug to the speaker is firmly seated. Does the power indicator light when you turn the speakers on? Is the volume control up? Those AC adapters sometimes do fail. The adapter is replaceable if it's gone bad (you can find a suitable one at Radio Shack).

If everything else is checking out and the speakers still have no sound, the amplifier integrated circuit has failed. While this could be repaired, you can probably buy a new set of speakers for what a service shop would charge to replace the amplifier.

No sound from monitor speakers
If the built-in speakers on the monitor do not produce sound, perform each step that follows, testing for sound after each step, until you can hear sound:
  1. Close the software program you are using that is experiencing the sound problems. Test for audio using another software program.
    If the volume is adequate using another software program, the issue is with the computer, not the monitor. If the volume is still low, continue with this procedure.
  2. Check the cable connection. If the monitor-to-computer connection is a VGA cable (usually blue on both ends), an additional audio cable is needed between the monitor and the computer. Check that the audio cable is connected properly.
  3. Try to adjust the volume higher using the monitor front-panel volume button.
  4. Using the buttons on the monitor, navigate through the onscreen display (OSD) menu to find audio or speaker settings and enable the speakers.
  5. Click Start c01292216.gif , Control Panel , and then click Sounds and Audio Devices .
  6. From the Volume tab, check the Device volume, and make sure it is not muted.
  7. From the Audio tab, in the Sound playback field, click the Volume button. Make sure the audio device is not muted and the volume outputs are at adequate levels.
  8. If the monitor-to-computer connection is an HDMI cable, an additional audio cable might be needed, depending on the setup and configuration of the system. To find out whether an additional audio cable is needed, go to
HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Using HDMI Audio with a Desktop Computer


This document pertains to HP or Compaq PCs with an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connector.
HDMI sends both audio and video through the same connection. If you want to hear audio from an HDMI connection, HDMI audio must be set through Windows . For example, if a computer is connected via HDMI to a monitor or TV and the proper HDMI audio settings are made, both audio and video will be sent to the display device.
Use the following steps to activate HDMI audio on your computer:

    NOTE: If you are setting up your computer for the first time, it may be easier to use a DVI connection or DVI-to-VGA adapter connection for the initial setup. Then, if you want to use an HDMI connection to connect a TV or monitor, activate sound for the HDMI connector using the steps that follow before connecting the HDMI cable to the TV or monitor.


    NOTE: After recovering the computer using the Recovery Manager, repeat this procedure to activate sound for the HDMI connector.

Step 1: Enabling HDMI sound in the BIOS
To hear audio through the HDMI connector to a monitor or display, enable the Onboard Audio setting in the computer BIOS settings by completing the following steps.

    NOTE: If you choose the default BIOS Setup options or upgrade the BIOS, you must repeat this procedure to enable audio for the HDMI connector.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. To enter the BIOS, turn on the computer and press the F10 key repeatedly until a BIOS Setup screen opens.
    A BIOS Setup screen opens.
  3. Press the right arrow key on the keyboard to select the Advanced tab.
  4. Press the down arrow key to select Onboard Audio , and then press the Enter key.
