I have a HP Pavilliona630n and I would like to hook up speakers to this computer. My monitor is a HPS2031 and it does not have speaker inputs or outputs. What type of speakers and cables do I need to buy...

The HPS2031 monitor has a audio-in jack port behind the monitor. You just need a audio cable male-to-male to connect from monitor to the cpu. Make sure the audio drivers for the computer are installed

I purchased a PV12M monitor and was wanting help connecting it to my Behringer xenyx 2442fx mixer

You will have to have an amplifeir between them since the PV12M is an unpowered speaker. The Xenyx 2442FX is likewise an unpowered mixer meaning it cannot directely drive a speaker. You will wire with a balanced line (TRS cable) between the 2442 and the amp and then from the amp to the speaker using a speaker type cable.

I just purchased 2 12"

bigger is always better, use the 12 if you have it. higher gauge = thinner / not better.

I purchased a X2gen 15'' monitor and can not make the speakers work. Do I just need to purchase a ''y'' audio connector and plug it into the audio jacks for left and right speakers? bjsworld

If there are ports to plug a cable into, you need to connect the monitor speakers to your PC via those ports. A Y cable would probably do it. The standard monitor cable does not carry sound to speakers in a monitor.

VGA Support for Polaroid TV

It will work if the resolution is set to the correct level. Probably best to start the laptop at 800 x 600 and work up.

I have no sound.

Hello. Your monitor come with two 3-watt speakers. I'm not super familiar with this particular monitor but, most monitors are alike in functions(there are only so many ways to do the same thing! lol) Anyway, the first thing I would do is go into the menu and look for the settings which pertain to *audio*. Normally, monitors give you the option of setting them to use either their internal speakers(which is what you are wanting) or using external speakers. The only video input you can use is a 15-pin "d-sub" connector(also called a vga connector). There are no audio signals in the video cable that is attached to the monitor. You'll have to connect audio from your computer to the connections on the unit. Usually, (I say this because modern whiz-bang video cards have everything on them now) there is a set of *audio-out" connectors that you would use to connect a set of speakers. And, most probably, you can access a menu(like double-clicking the little ATI icon in the lower right corner) and it will bring up a group of options menus to let you customize your display. Your system might have it's own separate audio card and, again, you'd have to run some cables up to the display.Hope I helped you!---Rick

IMPORTANT NOTE!! On checking out some specs for your monitor, I came across the x2Gen site. They're under chapter 11 and are no longer supporting anything--be it warranty or anything else and are directing folks to talk to the store where the item was purchased.

This monitor does not come with audio correct?

Yes you need to purchase outside speakers & hook them up to your soundcard in order to get sound from your computer. Another option would be headphones. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Sub remote works with two passive satallite monitors but sub has no sound

If sub has two signal outputs and if the monitors are full range (passive crosover built in), put mixer outputs to the sub and signal outputs of the sub to amps in.If not mixer outputs to th amp and its signal outputs to the sub in.Or you can use main out of the mixer for the monitors and rec out for the sub.Its just few XLR or jack cables extra.Just make sure that the mixer,sub and the amp are on the same power phase otherwise you'll have brrrrrrrrrrr on the speakers
