I have the Asus VN248H monitor which includes built in speakers. My computer is relatively old (4-6 years) and so my computer doesn't come with HDMI. It does come with one VGA and one DVI-D. Since I am using my second monitor to connect via VGA, I used a DVI-to-HDMI to connect my Asus monitor to my computer. I connected my 3.5mm jack at both ends (tower and monitor) but I get no sound. I experimented a bit and decided to see if using VGA would give me the same results (in case I had a faulty monitor). It didn't and when my Asus monitor is connected, I do get sound. I'm deciding whether I should just give in and buy a DVI-VGA adapter or an HDMI to VGA adapter (the Asus is my primary monitor, the secondary monitor doesn't come with speakers). But before I purchase anything, I wanted to make sure if there is anything I can do that might work before going to VGA. I did contact ASUS tech support, but they just gave me an RMA. My computer specs: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33Ghz NVidia GeForce 9300GE To summarize: HDMI + 3.5mm audio in = no sound VGA + 3.5 mm audio in = sound I want to get HDMI + 3.5mm audio in to give me sound. Thank you.
