I am getting no sound from the built-in speakers on this monitor. I have attached standard speakers to the tower and have managed to obtain sound, but it too is not working correctly. The volume is very low even though I've gone thru all the "chcklists" and levels are set as high as they can get. HELP??????!!!!!!!

Some monitors do not have speakers (my HP monitor does not). The sound has come out of some external speakers attached to the tower. Or maybe you need to access the monitors on-screen menu to turn the speakers on (if they have speakers). Or maybe you can access the monitor speaker control through the PCs Device Manager option (this is where all external components attache to the PC can be viewed, and sometimes changed).
If it has built-in speakers then it will have on screen volume control, that is how you can tell if it has built-in speakers, I cannot find any info on this VN205N. You are better off using power speakers anyway with much better sound than the the monitor built-in speakers.
It looks like there are no speakers according to: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/monitor/0000/Acer/X193/X193sp2.shtml
You should be able to use any external speakers to your system. The question is looks and power. You will likely have to buy speakers that have power in order to get enough volume.
Most speakers that come with monitors are of very, very low quality. You now have the option of buying good speakers (if you want to pay for them). If you are in a hurry you can likely pick up cheap speakers at the drugstore or Walmart. Another option is headphones.
Pls check if the audio cable from the monitor is connected to the tower. Make sure it is connected to the green port at the back.
Also check the volume button on the side of the monitor and set it to maximum.
If this doesnt work, then try with another pair of external speakers and check.
