My monitor speakers are not working

February 13, 2011 at 08:19:46
Specs: Windows XP
My plug and play CMV CT 723D monitor with speakers is working fine, but the speakers don't want to work? I have checked that the sound works through other speakers like a headset and plug in speakers - all work fine. It is as if the computor doesn't see the monitor's speakers. I know that we have used the monitor speakers a couple of years ago - so they worked before. I looked at the monitor's disk and there is no drivers on it and when I ask windows to look for a driver it says I have the best one (there is none). Please help

You do have the speakers connected to the sound ports don't you?

Yip! There are two cables going into the monitor and the computor. One is the normal sound cable and the other the cable for the screen. I even changed to the front port of the computor box to see if it isn't the port that's broken, but stil nothing.

Did the speakers ever work for you with the current Windows installation?

You mentioned the front ports. Many motherboards only allow the sound to go to one location. Either front or rear. Could that be your problem.

I am pretty confident that the speakers worked with the current installation, but I am quote clueless about the motherboard front back (one location) issue. What I can say is that if I take computor (loose) speakers and plug them in at the front port, then there is no problem with the sound - so maybe I must just go buy another set of speakers. It seems like the easy way out.

To expand on the front/ back issue you need to read the manual for your product. Most likely there is a jumper on the motherboard that you configure for either the front or the back.

The drivers are not the issue if the sound works when connected to the front ports.

Had you used the scan tool that you were encouraged to use when you first posted I would be able to give more concise help. I need information about your computer.
