I recently purchased the g226hql acer monitor. I was planning to connect my xbox 360 to the monitor, but the model I bought only had a dvi port and a vga port. I got a hdmi to dvi adapter, but the monitor doesn't have speakers, so now I have to figure out how to run the audio through my laptop speakers. My laptop btw has available one audio jac, one hdmi port, and one usb 3.0 port. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

You can't.

I'd exchange the monitor for one with an HDMI input and built-in speakers.

I'm confused as to what you're trying to do. Do you want your xbox to output video on the monitor but the sound through your laptop?
