Oy.

I have an ADC (or AOC, can't read the font) monitor with built in speakers. Today, they have suddenly stopped working. I checked all the sound controls, made sure everything was plugged in, and even restarted a few times. I also fiddled around with everything in between.

And yet, I still get no sound. I've learned that while im listening to music, if I turn my monitor off, I can catch a quick millisecond of sound from the speakers. The same also happens if I turn my monitor on, so I'm pretty sure nothing's truly broken. In any case, I'd reaaaally like some help on this problem, pleeease.

Oh, and I checked if headphones connected to the computer (not the monitor) worked. It did.

The monitor will contain a built-in amplifier for the speakers.

You diagnosis and test would suggest to me that this amplifier or its power source may be faulty. In other words a hardware fault.

If the powersupply or amp is going bad, you will need either new speakers or a new monitor.

You are not forced to use the monitor speakers, they will connect to the line out on the PC independently to the monitor. So just use a normal set of amplified speakers.
