    Ok my uncle just got rid of his monitor ( gave it to me ), its a black IBM one, pic below.

    http://img93.exs.cx/img93/1016/dcp025108lj.jpg

    and its got speakers n stuff, but the sound dont come out ?? on the cable its got, 1 for the video card, one for the mic ( i think ), one that looks like a PS2 thing, and 1 that is a USB thing.

    is there something else i need to get for the speakers to work ??? the one that looks like a ps2 thing doesnt seem to plug into anywhere, and when i plug in the USB theres no sound still so im guessing thats for something else.

    so, any help ?

    Hehe your uncle pawned it off on you to avoid the hazardous waste disposal fee. Knowing IBM, the speakers probably only work with some stupid ass proprietary connector on the back of a stupid ass proprietary IBM PC that only came with that monitor and delivered signal and DC power to the speakers from the computer. The USB cable could be for a USB hub built into the monitor. I see that sometimes.

    You sure it doesn't have a 3.5mm jack to plug a cable into from the computer?

    My LCD is like that :hs:
