Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, Have just purchased a Compaq SR5522. Already had fairly new flatscreen monitor with built in speakers so we didn't need new ones. Everything is connected up correctly and the monitor is working fine but we have no sound. We had windows XP before and now we have Vista. Any idea what Im doing wrong?

Check the connections first. There are usually at least two jacks on the back of a PC that look alike. Make sure you are connected to the one that is markes Speaker or has a tiny graphic of a speaker. Id the new connector is USB, then that's not it. Check the sound settings on your PC. If there is more than one output option, you may be sending the sound to the wrong one.

Can i connect my Sharp flatscreen tv to my wifi


Ron, in order to connect your TV to your home network, it will need an network interface. A network interface can be either a wired network jack on the TV itself, or a built in wireless capability (WiFi). You didn't provide the model number of your particular Sharp TV, so I can't tell you if your TV offers this connectivity or not.

Even if your TV offers wired or wireless connectivity, some TVs only allow network access to update firmware or to display "still" JPEG or GIF images; not to stream audio or video. The TV will need to have some sort of player to display or play video and / or audio files. Even then, if the TV is not fairly new enough, it may lack the support for newer file formats - such as .MKV, MPEG, etc. that are used for a large number of HD content.

You can get around this hurdle by connecting a newer computer to the TV. Purchase a wireless keyboard & mouse and connect the computer's video card to the TV so that it will appear as a monitor to the computer. Make sure your get a video card in the computer that will provide a digital video output - (HDMI, DVI, etc.) and a cable that can plug into one of the unused A/V inputs on the TV. If using a cable other then HDMI, you'll need to provide a cable between the computer's audio output and the TV's audio input. Use the computer's network interface to download or stream a program directly to your 55 inch "monitor".

I hope this helps - good luck!

I purchased a new computer and after hooking everything up, everything works except I have no audio. I believe the speakers are internal to this monitor.


Double check that you have the speaker cable plugged into the proper jack (audio out - green) on the computer. Make sure that the audio hasn't been muted and that it is set for the correct output type (if you have a multi-channel audio option).

Try a standalone set of speakers to check if the audio driver for the on-board audio or sound card is working.

I hope this helps.

(I've found that the integrated speakers will fail before the monitor does. Since the integrated speakers are low-end and similar speakers are fairly cheap, get new speakers of a quality you like. Repairing the speakers isn't worth it.)

I have a HP 1755 flatscreen monitor but i cant get it to work


There should be a 3.5mm stereo phone jack on the monitor. You need a 3.5 male to 3.5 male cable to plug the monitor into the speaker out from your PC. Cable can be purchased at Radio Shack for under $10.

I can not tell in my monitor has speakers


Most monitors do not have built in speakers and the ones that do have them are usually of fair quality. Look for speaker grills under your monitor's screen. Didn't find speaker grills? You can buy computer speakers at a computer store or at Walmart. Your computer, desktop or laptop, has a green jack that you plug a set of speakers into. The volume control may be on the speakers or on your keyboard.

Have Model S-3F flatscreen monitor w/speakers - Speakers aren't w


I assume it has speakers built in since your post is in the monitor category. You need to connect the speakers in the monitor to your sound card. It should have included the audio cable to do so. The cable should have a green plug and it plugs into the green jack located in the back of the computer.
