Included with the monitor must be a minimum of 3 cord: power, video (DVI or VGA), audio (mini jack 3.5 mm). The connectors on these cords are so different that they simply cannot be confused (if you were still able to put the VGA cord in the audio Jack, so you broke the motherboard). So, take the wire with the mini jack plug. Usually it is green on the end and matches the color of the audio input on your motherboard or audio card. If you cheated and didn't supply cord – buy it. Mini Jack male to male 3.5 mm is the minimum, is ideal. Connect the two jacks: the monitor and the system unit, and continue with the next step.
Everything is connected, but no sound. Do not be sad, maybe you just haven't turned it and it clicked on. Look carefully, it should be on the panel of the monitor and the icon above the audio speaker. Click on it, the screen will display picture crossed out or not crossed out speaker. Be smart, what it can mean (probably crossed out no sound, not crossed out – there is sound), proceed according to logic.
Connected, turned on, but no sound. Wait to fall into a rage, curb your enthusiasm and navigate to the sound settings of the operating system. In Windows this can be done through start menu – control Panel – Sound – Playback tab – Properties – in the new window Levels tab. You can go through the tray icon with the same speaker icon. Perhaps somewhere there is a treacherous mark for off. Remove it if so. Adjust the volume in the program (and if there are the corresponding buttons on the monitor).
If again no sound – see point one, perhaps you mistook the entrance to the system unit. Include sound file, e.g. MP3, and change the inputs until until you hear Sovki.
Advice 2 : How to turn on the monitor sound
Monitor with speakers has low sound quality but saves space on your Desk and frees up one outlet in the extension cord. The audio signal on such a monitor is fed via a separate cable.
Look to see if a second cable connecting the audio input monitor output of the computer sound card. If it is, and the sound is still there, first, try to find on the front panel of the monitor button with the symbol of a crossed speaker. Click on it and then either over it will turn off the led, or the screen will go into stand dynamics, but not crossed. This means that the sound is enabled. Pressing the button again will cause the receiver diode or the emergence of symbols crossed out the dynamics - the sound is muted. On some monitors a separate button to change the mode of the speaker no - this feature can be enabled and disabled via the menu.
If the monitor is brought out of shutdown mode sound, but to hear anything fails, look for the volume control. Even on the monitors, where all adjustments are performed electronically, such a controller can be analog. Turn the handle, and the sound should appear. If the handle is missing, look on the front panel arrow buttons, which is located between the symbol dynamics or try to find an item to adjust the volume in the menu on the monitor.
It is impossible to rule out incorrect configuration of the mixer of the operating system - but then the sound will not be in the case if you connect to the sound card with regular speakers. Run the appropriate tool (its name depends on what you're running) and check if you have turned the audio output.
Even if the cable exists, not the fact that it's connected properly. Check whether it is connected one plug to the green socket of the sound card and into the monitor socket marked as Audio in. If necessary, install the RAM in the correct slots. In addition, the cord may be faulty. To find out whether this is so, disconnect it from the computer and from the monitor, and will ring the ohmmeter.
In the absence of cable look for it in the packing box of the monitor. If he is not there, and there manufacture it themselves. Take the two 3.5 mm stereo mini-plug standard Jack (TRS). Three-wire cord, connect the corresponding contacts.
All switch engage when de-energized equipment.
Advice 3 : How to enable speakers on the monitor
Some monitors like LCD, and pipe, equipped with integrated speakers. Just like individual speakers, built-in can be connected to the PC sound card stereo cable.
Note that the cable on which the monitor receives the image signal from the graphics card (VGA or DVI) not contain conductors for supplying audio signals. To do this, use a separate thin cord. It can be built into the monitor, but more often it is removable.
Before making any connections, power off both your computer and monitor. If the audio cable is built-in, just connect it to the green socket of the sound card. If he is separate, look for it in the package monitor. While the last one socket standard Jack, the same size on the sound card, the cord must be equipped with two identical plugs. One of them (no matter what) connect to the sound card as described above and second to the monitor socket Audio In. If the monitor has two RCA connector, connect the red plug of the cord with a socket of the same color on the monitor, perform the same operation with the white plug and the green plug to the sound card.
When purchasing a monitor, used, cord supplied may not be. Then it should be collected. If it needs to have both sides of the plug Jack, just connect the cable to the desired length of the same name, the contacts of the two plugs. If on the one hand should be one plug-type Jack, and with another - two RCA, General wire all the plugs connect together the middle contact of the plug Jack plug to the signal contact of the white RCA plug, and the distant to the signal contact of the red RCA plug.
Turning on the monitor and computer, make sure now the speakers sound. If not, adjust the volume on the software mixer of your computer (its name depends on OS) and a controller or Volume buttons on the monitor. If necessary, display the monitor mode, Mute. If its a separate front panel socket Jack, you can include the headphones, with built-in speakers will be turned off.
