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.

HI there,

You already performed the best possible troubleshooting and defined your problem. Your monitor has failed in one of several ways and the cost of repairing it will make a trip to the recycler and then to the place where you purchase a new one the most logical next step.

Best Regards,

Speakers killed my moniter


Well as you have already tried disconnecting the peripherals from your computer, and tried restarting the computer too which did not help you, it sounds to be an hardware issue with the monitor. However if incase you have not tried this, you can disconnect the monitor completely from the tower, power on the monitor, if it powers on and you get a message as no signal, your monitor is working good. If not replace the monitor. If the message appears on the monitor screen, disconnect everything from the tower, push and hold the power button on the tower for a minute. Connect just the monitor and check for any display. If you do get display, thats good, connect one device at a time and check to see if the display appears.

If theres no display with just the monitor connected, the issue would be with the graphics card. You may need to replace it or get the system repaired.

Cannot get any sound from my Dimension 3100


Speakers are not built into the box itself. They may be in the monitor, or completely separate.

Did you get this directly from Dell, or from a third party. Dell would have shipped you speakers with it, or a monitor with speakers built-in. Purchased from a third-party you might just get the box itself.

If you have a monitor with speakers, you still have to connect the sound output from the box to the monitor.

Speakers dont work


They are built into the monitor, however there is a cable that needs to be connected from the speaker socket of your sound card (normally colour coded green) to the audio in on the back of your monitor.  If this is done already, you need to check your volume settings on both your PC and on the monitor (remembering to check for any "Mute" settings)
