Are you sure the monitor can handle speakers? Maybe it has it's own speakers, maybe it has no speakers at all. You can always plug the speakers into your CPU into the sound card, it is usually the green audio port.
That said, some things that you can trouble shoot.
Make sure that the volume is all the way up on the desktop.
Make sure that the volume control is all the way up in the control panel sound option
Make sure that nothing has been muted, the control panel allows you to selectively mute a single device.
I will assume you have checked the cables etc to make sure they are not bad in any way and skip to the more usual problems
Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way if they have a separate volume control. (not all flat monitor do)
First check that they were not MUTED by accident. A red line through the speaker icon would indicate this and you would just need to untick the MUTE box.
If its not as simple as that then carry om below.
OK now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom tool bar.
Click Open Volume Control.
A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.
If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.
Put a normal music CD in your CD/DVD player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.
If all went well you are running but if not you know just may want to check the hardware properties and should there be an exclamation mark against any of the sound hardware you know where the problem is.
This can in most cases be fixed with an updated driver for your sound card.
first off check via your control panel then system then hardware that there are no issues pending with any hardware (exclamation mark)
If so that needs to be addressed first and is usually a driver issue.
Seeing as its a new card you should have the driver disc nearby.
In most cases just pup it in a drive and it may auto-start in which case just follow any instructions you are given on screen.
If there were no issues there then there is a good chance you have either a volume control icon or maybe even an icon from the sound card manufacturer either one should let you at the section I would like you to check next.
Right click on either the volume control or any other sound related icon.
either way you should get a volume control option.
Open it ans you should see a list of the sound devices available to you
Make sure that the first for ar set to at least half way and then click OPTIONS. your new sound card should be listed as the first device and any others BELOW it. If thats not the case you need to set it from here to be the first.
try a music CD
I will assume you already plugged in the speakers to the green hole on your sound card and that they are switched on with the volume control turned up a bit.
Try to re-install your audio driver !! Also go to add and remove and remove media player and then go and re-install windows media player again( probably a newer version ) should work!!! swampratt200 AAAEEE!!!!!
YOU MAY NEED TO DOWNLOAD A NEW AUDIO DRIVER OR INSTALL A SOUND CARD IN YOUR SYSTEM.
FIRST go in control panel select sounds and audio devices OPTION and click on adjust volume look to see if your volume is up and make sure the mute option isnt on if this doesnt work proceed to find audio driver via the internet.
