Check cable connections between the monitor and the sound
card/motherboard output, you could unadventedly dislodged it, check the
monitor speaker volume control on the monitor menu. If all else fails
connect the headphone input directly to the PC case front or back sound
output - much better than via the monitor anyway - shorter pathway
makes better sound, last but not least: use a better set of speakers -
monitor speakers ****
Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.
I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.
If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.
Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.
Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.
If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.
Speakers are not built into the box itself. They may be in the monitor, or completely separate.
Did you get this directly from Dell, or from a third party. Dell would have shipped you speakers with it, or a monitor with speakers built-in. Purchased from a third-party you might just get the box itself.
If you have a monitor with speakers, you still have to connect the sound output from the box to the monitor.
Alright, I got the answer for ya, first, go into your control panel. Click on Sounds and Audio Devices. Listed in this window should be the name of your sound card. Under that, should be Device Volume, and at the bottom, should be the Speaker Settings, click into Advanced, next to speaker volume. It should show you a diagram of a monitor with the amount of speakers it has selected shown next to it. Where it says Speaker Setup, click and then scroll down until you see 3 settings labeled Monitor Stereo, Monitor Stand Stereo, and Monitor Mounted Stereo. Whatever one enables the sound will be the one you want to stick with.
Hi check the sound cable hasn't fallen out or come loose from the back of the monitor. After this reinstall the drivers for the monitor you will be able to download them from viewsonic if still not working then the speaker jack or speakers are faulty.
There should be a phono jack for the speakers to work. 1 lead from the back of you computer to the Normally back of the monitor but sometimes in the side. Check that also some monitors have separate power for the speakers check you have that.
