Yes you need a stereo jack to connect the monitor through the audio port (green hole) to the green port on your soundcard chip. You can obtain one of these from maplins or Radioshack or similar, which will be cheap. Make sure you tell them you wanta jack with stereo

How do I connect speakers


to connect speakers: You look at the back of your computer, there will be several small holes, most are color coded. the green hole is the output for speakers.
there is usually also a small arrow pointing away from the hole, this is the icon for OUTPUT. Other holes will have an icon for INPUT and for microphones.
If you have trouble seeing these things, you can just plug your speakers into the first hole. Goto YouTube and play a video, If you hear sound you have the right output. If no sound, try the speakers in the next hole. Continue until you hear the sound. ( this will not hurt the computer or the speakers )
NOTE: make sure the volume is turned UP on the speakers and the volume is turned UP on the computer.

The speakers no longer work. They were working 2


selectbanker, As a test only try this. Remove green plug from rear of pc. Find old am/fm stereo transistor radio or even a portable cd player and connect the green plug to your "new" audio source. Can you hear anything coming out of the monitor's speakers? Also try a set of stereo headphones in the green audio "out" jack to see if sound is coming out of the pc. Narrow down where loss of signal occurs first. 12fixlouie

No sound through external 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.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Speaker trouble


There has to be separate cord for the speakers. Look for an Audio port on the back of the monitor. It looks like a small hole and should be marked "Audio". Connect this to the Audio out on the PC using a cable with two Audio jacks at both ends.

I'm frustrated. Love the picture on my Acer 22" monitor with speakers, but the sound is very poor. I have the volume for the computer turned up, but still can barely hear the sound. What can be done to...


Built-in monitor speakers are usually not the best quality. The monitor should have it's own volume control have you tried adjusting it?

You can use external speakers by plugging them into the same jack in the back (green) of the PC instead of the monitor.

Hello Cricket,

Sound/Speakers that are built into monitors, typically are pretty poor. I suggest purchasing some speaker from your local electronics store, or www.newegg.com. (New Egg has very good deals on computers and accessories, like speakers.) Here is a link to New Egg's speaker section. http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=60&name=Speakers

On the back of your computer, you will see little holes (3.5mm). They are usually color coded, Green is the typical speaker output jack/hole/port. When you buy your speakers, you will plug the cable with Green Head Plug (3.5mm) that is attached to your speakers, into this Green Jack. Turn them on, and you should have audio! Now, if the volume seems weak, you can double click the speaker at the bottom right of your Start Bar in windows. It looks like a little silver circle. This is your volume control There are multiple slide bars to adjust your audio.

Good Luck!

No speaker volume


Hey Mate, being honest weve sold alot of TFT monitors and most are hard to hear with all the volumes turned up, only thing you can try are. turn volume up to max on the monitors menu, also double click on the little speaker icon on the bottom right hand corner of the screen and a volume menu appears turn up WAV, & the main one on the left. if you are not getting any sound at all check you have the audio cable from the monitor plugged into the green connection on the back of the pc. Afraid thats the only options to get it louder or buy a set of speakers to get the sound louder. All the best John
