Question about Office Depot Computers & Internet
Sorry Susan (svcramer),
It is your UNDERSTANDING of what a
MONITOR is... (not a TV & traditionally more costly).
I have been dealing with monitors since they were huge,
ugly and could heat an entire room by themselves.
They (if appropriately named) are PURELY
for video only... (correct .. No sound).
If you now want sound... get out those old PC speakers
(or ear bobs/buds... and use the audio OUT ...
(also TYPICALLY a pre-amp signal)...
(mine are BOSE (great)) are also available...
but you must consider they typically require
Their own power... and very LIKELY an amplifier).
If possible... Look over your purchase agreement
and with Office Depot and give them a call...
Explain your "EXPECTATIONS" versus what you
got and check out a POSSIBLE return on the
I doubt they are obliged to consider your
misunderstanding... but they enjoy a DECENT
REPUTATION in Customer Service...
Your sales person COULD have been more perceptive
about your goals & desires... rather than letting you
purchase equipment that does not meet your
(quite reasonable) expectations...
TV's are typically cheaper and a lot more
features and versatility than monitors...
I WOULD (first) urge you to stop by a TV
sales (here would be a BEST BUY or Fry's)
and have a sales person walk you through how
to use a TV as a PC monitor... (check the price
(weigh in the effort... life is short)).
Hope this works for you

It is possible they aren't compatible but it is more likely the outfit you bought has something missing.
Sometimes the speakers are integrated into the monitor but the connection to these is by a separate audio cable from the PC.
If the speakers aren't integrated into the monitor you will need a suitable active speaker system that should arrive with a power supply and all other leads ready wired and just need plugging into the PC.
Consulting the instruction manual is a good way of learning where to plug things in. Most conventional PCs have three jack sockets close together and some are usefully colour coded - One is audio out and another is audio in but I can't remember the third.
It is possible your new PC is entirely USB and has many USB sockets but few of the more familiar sockets. If that is the case you will need a pair of USB speakers.,,
I suggest you contact the supplier for advice...

You might have to reinstall the software that came with the speakers since you had to wipe your computer clean when the virus was on there. The speakers will not work until the software is installed back on your computer.

Your monitor has several different video inputs.
Go to the configuration settings on your monitor and select the video input that matches the video cable from your computer.

Are you pressing down firmly enough? If not, sounds like the digitizer may have a problem... The digitizer is the layer in front of the lcd, it's job is to pick up the signal from your pen and send it to the motherboard. The motherboard should have two connections to the screen, one to the lcd itself and another to the digitizer. If you remove the screws on the bottom of the tablet you can take off the keyboard and see if both are connected right.

SOURCE: CHECK SIGNAL CABLE
Typically this happens when the resolution of the display is out of range of the monitor. Normally this is when the resolution is too high. Have you changed the resolution settings? Also, not to be crass, but if there a video card in the system, be sure that you are connected to the correct VGA connector. With an extra card in the system, the onboard VGA connector is not used.
Keep us posted,

From a distance, it sounds like you do not have the sound card drivers installed. Since it is a SoundBlaster card, go to creative.com and download a utility that finds, indentifies, and then installs the drivers for your sound card. That should fix the problem. If not, then you have other issues going on with motherboard drivers not being installed installed.
