The HDMI standard supports sending digital audio and the DVI standard does not support sending any kind of audio.

If your monitor has an analog audio input jack it may allow you to run a separate audio signal cable from the computer to the monitor to work with the DVI video.

So basically I need to buy a audio signal cable and connect the monitor and the pc?

But I have a question, this problem only occurred when I changed my mb, (it is the same type, but the old one was broken) iirc, the old one doesn't required the cable you mentioned. All I need is plug in my headphone and it worked fine. However, I can't remember if I used a HDMI or DVI cable back then.

You would need to check your monitor's owner's manual or any on-screen menu settings to confirm that it has an analog audio input. A lot of monitors use the same type of 3.5 mm headphone jack for an audio input and also check if the monitor can feed that audio input to the headphone jack when using the DVI input.

FWIW, I would consider it a technological miracle if you were only using a DVI cable between your old motherboard and monitor and getting PC sound out of the monitor.

Yeah, like I said, I forgot about the details so I might be wrong. Also, I just check the back of my monitor, there's no an analog audio input jack , only a headphone jack.

When I use the HDMI cable, there's sound coming out of my headphone, but when there's no sound present, the headphone will have a very annoying noise that's very similar to static noise. Also, Realtek HD Audio doesn't work, only the Asus VS228 one worked. Why is it the case?

The random/static like noise could be coming from the digital-to-analog converters and audio amplifiers inside your monitor. They all have some inherent amount of background noise and high-quality (and more expensive) audio hardware may not have been a priority with the monitor manufacturer.

As for the Realtek HD Audio setting in your screencap, I suspect that it is in reference to the headphone output on your computer, not the monitor. Your monitor's headphone feed is controlled by the ASUS VS228 playback device settings. Perhaps someone else here might be more familiar with Windows' audio settings in addressing your second question.

Ok, thanks for answering. I think I will just buy another HDMI cable to save some trouble.
