Just bought this awesome monitor. It's also a stand-alone HDTV, so we hooked it up as a TV and started watching it. It has internal speakers, but no volume control, even on the sidebar menu, and it's very loud, so unless everyone in the house is either awake or passed out, I can't watch it. There is an extra item I can order for $30 that will add a control to it, but I can't believe they would sell a TV with no volume control. I will also be hooking it up to a computer. Tech support told me this monitor has no speakers in it, but I'm telling you it does and it's very loud. Anyone know what to do? It's a 2275 model, brand new as of 7-7-07. Three people have turned it upside down and all around and there is NO volume control, only USB ports and cable/wire hookups. The touch menu on the sidebar does not have a volume choice.
I have the same monitor. There is a way to turn down the volume for the internal speakers. Go to Main menu on the monitor, Advance settings, then into Audio Feed Back. Then adjust the volume from there.

Re: 22" HDTV Gateway monitor volume control
Well that is weird isn't it?
As far as hooking to the PC is concerned volume is easy- control it from the PC.
In a normal audio set up - Hi-Fr/Radio/TV
there are in fact two amplifiers.
One is the preamp to imports all the bass /treble and all that and volume.
the out put amp - plain vanilla flat power
I suggest that this is the case with this screen it has no pre amp it relies on an external Audio input .

yes and no. wou will need a vga to RCA video adaptor, then you will need to get something to play the sound through. after thats sorted out it should work. I use my monitor to play my xbox360 using external speakers
If your old monitor was a Compaq, it had slots for the speakers to hang on and provided the power for the speakers. The speakers still got their input from a cable that plugged into the computer sound output jack. If those speakers are the style Compaq supplied when I worked at a Compaq service shop, they originally came with metal stands that fit into slots on the back so you could stand them up on their own, and a 12-volt power adapter so you could use them without the monitor. If you don't have those pieces, you can buy a suitable power adapter (12 volts DC at 1 amp) at Radio Shack but the speaker stands are hard to find. You could try eBay, or just make a holder of some kind. (A friend of mine used those little wooden stands you can buy to display plates to hold her speakers when she got a new monitor. They worked out pretty well.)
Or you can replace the speakers. A new set would have everything you need. But those Compaq speakers sounded pretty good, so if they're still working you might want to keep them.
