I have a acer AL1917W. The speakers on the monitor do not work. I bought the computer at a pawn shop so i'm not sure if they worked prior to me purchasing the computer. The volume is not muted and is turned all the way up. Please help.

Re: flat screen monitor
First, make sure that you have all the necessary cables connected, then make sure that they are all connected properly and tightly. Also, make sure that your computer is set to output to the correct output. If that doesn't work, then the speakers are probably broken. That's the exact reason why you don't buy stuff from pawn shops. Cheap, but crappy.

remove power to your monitor; then remove the monitor's back cover and, front cover; when you can see the circuit board check for a buldged can capacitor or, two; replace these by unslodering them and, resoldering the new ones in place digikey.com sells the capacitors (don't forget the position of the capicitors they go in only one way
There is no sound driver, they are speakers, they work off of the audio output jack on the back of your PC, on the motherboard. If you have the sound drivers installed for the motherboard, and no sound, then you have plugged the monitor audio cable into the wrong jack on the PC, or you have the settings wrong just as MIKE said above.
After removing the back cover screws that you saw, ok, there is a screw
under the stand holder. Remove the cover that covers the stand holder
joints. you can remove it using a flat head screw driver, it is
removeable only it appeares stuck to the back cover. After you unscrew,
use flat head screw driver and carefully by pushing to the side
of the LCD bend. Carefull you might break the cover. Good Luck.
