Re: Dell a225 2 speakers light on fully plugged in..
Try going to "control panel", then "sounds and audio devices" (in XP, should be the same in newer OS's). Click on the "advanced" button under Device Volume. That brings you to "volume control". Make sure the levels are up and the device is not muted.

I believe this monitor does not have a built-in speaker. If you have the optional hang-on speaker, it must connect to the laptop's speaker/headphone port (speaker's green connector cable/plug). You cannot use the external speaker and the headphone at the same time unless you are using a Y connector cable.
This monitor has a VGA and a DVI-D ports for video input. Neither supports sound.
I hope this helps. Dell 24 Monitor P2414H
There is a knob on the right side of the speaker which turns the speakers on/off and adjusts volume. There is a white light in the middle of the speakers (underneath the DELL logo) indicating whether the power is on/off.
the surround sound speakers plug into the rear of the computer with three plugs. an adapter comes with it to plug those three into one green plug. if you plug that green plug in, the rear and center speakers should work, although i don't know if the surround sound will work correctly but you should get sound
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.
This monitor does not have built in speakers you will need to buy some... The AS 500 soundbar fits on to it but is now not available. See if you can find it second hand.. Or buy USB speakers that fit into the back of your PC as the mointor does not have any ports.
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.
