My speakers to my PC are built into the monitor, and when I connect the monitor to my computer no sound comes out of them. I've connected the audio wire to the appropriate slot on the back of my tower but the computer doesn't register any sign of recognition that they are there. In other words,my computer doesn't know that the speakers exist, and its difficult to find a driver for it considering its a monitor. Any idea what I can do to fix this?
Ps - I tried buying other pc speakers, they aren't recognised either, itisnt detecting any audio device.

Re: Monitor / Speaker Problem
As you boot your PC there's a way to get to Cmos or Bios Setup screens. Sometimes you tap the Del key, sometimes it's one of the F keys. So get into Setup and make sure that the Audio System is turned on. Also if you got a disc for *********** board, there may be Audio drivers on it.

Zone 2 Setup on the RX-V773 using the ZONE2/PRESENCE Extra Speakers
The RX-V773 extra speaker terminals can power one set of speakers for Zone 2 or Presence speakers. If the extra speaker terminals are utilized then the RX-V773 cannot be set for Bi Amp (Surround Back/BI-AMP terminals).
Setting the Extra Speaker Terminals
Note: The RX-V773 remote control will be used to access the On Screen Menu of receiver.
1. Press the On Screen button on the remote control to enter the On Screen Menu.
2. The On Screen display should be displayed on the TV/Monitor.
3. Press the Arrow Down button on the remote until Setup comes up in the screen.
4. Press the Enter Button on the remote control.
5. The Setup Menu will come up across the TV/Monitor screen.
6. Use the Arrow Left & Right buttons on the remote to navigate to Speaker.
7. Press the Arrow Down button on the remote to select Manual Setup.
8. Press the Enter Button on the remote control to enter Speaker Manual Setup menu.
9. Speaker Manual Setup menu with Power Amp Assign highlighted will come up.
10. Press the Enter Button on the remote control to enter Power Amp Assign menu.
11. Speaker Manual Setup, Power Amp Assign menu will come up with Basic highlighted.
12. Press the Arrow Down button on the remote to select 7ch+1ZONE.
13. Press the Enter button on the remote to select 7ch+1ZONE.
14. Press the On Screen button to exit the on screen menu.
To control Zone 2 using the RX-V773 remote, the switch at the upper left side (above the BD/DVD Scene button) of the remote must be set to Zone 2. To see the operations on the front of the Yamaha receiver you must press the Zone Control button on the front of the receiver.
Note: Only analog signals can be sent to Zone 2. If you want to output the sound from Zone 2, connect an external component to USB Thumb drive, USB iPhone/iPod, Network, AV 5-6 or Audio 1-2 by analog connection. For AM/FM radio the antennas must be attached.
I'd say you DO need to evaluate how the PSW is attached. I can't find the specific manual for it but the prescribed way for most subs that accept speaker level inputs (and HAVE speaker level output terminals) is run one pair of speaker outputs from the receiver to the sub and daisy-chain the Klipsh speakers from the sub.
Please tell us all the specific models of the pieces in this scenario so we can know what you're talking about.
Do you mean an unpowered (normal) monitor speaker?
You CAN extend speaker wire through a speaker (amp plus to speaker plus, speaker minus to another speaker plus; that speaker minus back to amp minus) and this will INCREASE impedance some, which will in theory reduce effective power output, but, hey, nothing is free and your added speakers pushing more air may result in an improved loudness perception.
Going parallel from speaker to speaker may REDUCE impedance near or below the amp's spec and that could be dangerous to the amp. I'd go with the series option above.
In either case, if your speakers aren't identical in all respects one will probably sound louder than the other. Careful placement regarding distance from the listening position may resolve that for you but then it introduces imaging issues. Like i said, no free lunch.
If you're expecting multichannel sound FROM THE TV instead of from the source you're watching, it's not gonna happen. TV's are notoriously poor sound sources. This one is no different.
Multichannel TV-related audio is best found at its source - cable / sat / dvd / bd....
I run video-related audio from my video sources directly to my TV and their audio directly to my receiver. Specialization yields best results.
I'd recommend skipping the Receiver for video, too, as it adds a lot of opportunity for HDMI-related incompatibilities and sound syncing problems. The more interconnects in the path, the more distorted it will become and the more opportunities for problems. Plus you can bypass the receiver and listen to lo-fi programming like news and weather through the TV's speakers if you like. Save a buck on electricity.
Just curious, which HDMI on the receiver is connected to your TV? Input or Output?
This note is on Page 11 of the manual:
Audio signals input at the HDMI jack are not output from any speaker terminals but output from the connected video monitor. To enjoy the sound from speakers connected to this unit,
-- make an analog or digital connection besides the HDMI connection (see page 13).
-- mute the volume on the connected video monitor
"Check SP cable." -- The unit is perceiving a short circuit. Are your speaker impedances sufficiently high? Disconnect the Front Right speaker and try raising the volume again. The speaker may be blown or the cable shorting.
At this page you can see details about connecting the audio cable between the pc and your monitor. In two words all you have to do is connect the green audio jack from your pc tower (line out) with the green audio jack at the back of your monitor. In case you don't have the cable you can find one asking for it as "cable with 3.5mm stereo jack both ends"
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Doument Reference: E23914196 Subject/Description: "Protect 21" is displayed when connecting to speaker/powered subwoofer combo
SYMPTOMS Protect 21 is displayed when
connecting to speaker/powered subwoofer combination model such as the
SA-VA7000ED. The problem was also found to occur when connected to the
Definitive Technology POWER MONITOR 500 and POWER MONITOR 700 series
speakers. CAUSE The DC detection circuit is triggered when the speakers are connected.
Add a 4.7k metal oxide film resistor across capacitors C1319 and C1329 located on the D-AMP board.
Check to make sure you have the TV input connections in the correct
slots. Sometimes there are two possible inputs for a TV. One being a monitor 1 and the other a monitor 2. There could also be speaker select buttons on the receiver that correspond to each.
Also check the TV audio settings to make sure the output connections are sending an audio signal, also known as external speakers.
