Do you have another lead to plug in between the audio output on your pc and the audio input on the monitor?

If you have done this already then check that the audio lead is plugged into the right socket (there are usually 3) on the PC.

You might need a new sound card or reinstall the drivers.
Go to control panel, look for hardware and check device manager. If there is a yellow exclamation mark, follow instructions for rolling back the driver.

I plugged in my speakers to Compaq Presiaro computer, and get no sound. New batteries are in, what should I look for? Do I need to download something for these to work?


Hello Debkopper, Hi!, No sound output can be several things. so lets do this one at a time. No sound means: 1. mute or low volume setting. check your volume controls. If you can find the volume controls, 2. look at the lower right side of your monitor, (if you are using Windows7 or xp) you should see a speaker ICON. click it and set the volume. If you have no speaker ICON, then 3. you need the driver software to activate the sound section of your PC. if you have the CD of the PC motherboard, use the CD to install the driver. IF you have a SOUND CARD, locate the CD that comes with it when you purchase it. If the sound card comes with your PC. locate its CD driver. 4. NO CD, then browse the internet to download the driver software. Here are info of what you need jot this down..... the motherboard make and model. (If sound card then the make and model) 5. After download install the driver.
IF you cannot find the driver or simply tired to find what it is, BUY a USB type SOUND CARD. plug it on a spare USB port, then your done, instant sound!!!

No volume this monitor was given to me the volume is all the way up on desktop and I cant see where any speakers can be put.


Are you sure the monitor can handle speakers? Maybe it has it's own speakers, maybe it has no speakers at all. You can always plug the speakers into your CPU into the sound card, it is usually the green audio port.

That said, some things that you can trouble shoot.
  1. Make sure that the volume is all the way up on the desktop.
  2. Make sure that the volume control is all the way up in the control panel sound option
  3. Make sure that nothing has been muted, the control panel allows you to selectively mute a single device.

Have external gateway speakers


First make sure your sound cards are working properly. 1) Check the master volume of your PC. Go to start menu, control panel, sounds speech and audio devices, sounds and audio devices - i) In volume tab click the speaker volume and check whether all the left, right, etc.. volumes are in medium or high. ii) In audio tab click the volume tab of sound playback and make sure that the master volume is not in mute and all the volumes are either in medium level or at 100%. After making these changes try playing any music. Even if the problem persists go and get your sound card checked in an authorised service centre.

Thanks & Regards,
Shiva

Can not get this monitor to play sound on PC using XP Version 5.1. a driver needed?


there is not a windows xp 5.1 so I am going to take a wild guess and you mean you want 5.1 surround sound

If your computer plays sound through its own speakers normally then you do not need a driver.
I took this from the FAQ
  1. Make sure the audio cable is plugged in to the back of the monitor and in to the Green port in the back of the computer.
  2. Press the Right Arrow button on the monitor itself and set the volume to 10.
  3. Double check your audio settings on your computer and make sure nothing is muted.
This is not one of the better monitors in this price range having only a VGA input but is suitable for most people.

Sound wont come on


Did the sound ever work?

Is your sound cable plugged into the green hole on the back of your PC and into the correct hole on the back side of the monitor?

Is the mute on, either on the monitor or from the keyboard or windows volume control?

Go to "Start", "Control Panel", "Sounds and Audio Devices" and poke around there. Make sure all the sound settings look correct there.

Hope this helps, if I was able to FixYa, please remember to rate me. Thanks.

There is no sound coming from my computer on either my monitor or desktop speakers. I have checked my volume controls in all of the panels and they are up but I still have no sound.


Hello.
The things you should do:
1- Make sure your speakers are on( properly connected to power supply).there should be a LED indicator ON
2- Make sure the cable coming out of your speakers or monitor ( Mini plug connector) is properly connected to the audio out jack in your computer.

Before continue:
In order to be sure all is ok, unplug the mentioned mini plug in touch the end of the plug with your finger, if step 1 is ok, you should hear a noise coming from your speaker, set the volume control in your speakers to an apropiate level, (don't forget to plug in it again).
Is everything ok ? if yes, continue:

3- In the volume controls in windows:

The left most control is the master make sure the checkbox ( Mute all) is not checked, the same apply to the one labeled wave( this one reproduce the sounds stored in your PC and the ones coming from the mic, if you are using one).
Note: to use the mic you wil have to clear the corresponding checkbox.
If this doesn't solve your problem you will have to check for the audio drivers.
Let me know if you are still having problems.

Speakers


Start with the obvious! Are all connections to PC connected? Be sure that the proper wires are connected to the proper plug in.
Next you may have to adjust the volume control thru Windows. Look for the small speaker icon at the bottom right (usually) of the screen. Double click, and be sure that all of the volume controls are "up" and be sure that none of them are "muted"

There also may be a volume control on the monitor, speaker assembly.

Good luck!
