    Can I ask an extemely simplistic question. At the back of my processor how do I connect up my sound ( I have green connectors but unsure what goes where). My flatscreen has built in speakers but I'm not sure how to achieve sound....

    I had sound but then I went and moved house and am scratching my head as to how to achieve this basic feature..

    Advise for a technophobe or a link to a beginners site (I've looked honest) greatly appreciated ..

    How many plugs do you have that come from the monitor and are they colored?

    Hi Norton I have a lead with green connections is that what you mean? ! I have another small black lead but unsure whether this is needed.... I know this should be obvious but I've tried all the permutations I can think of but it's just not interested.. Mute is not on I've checked.

    Thanks

    Most sound imputs on the sound card (back of processor) are often color coded also. So if you've done green to green or definitely plugged it into the speaker jack then there is another problem. Does the black jack look the same as the green one? What is the make and model of the monitor?

    Eureka it's working not quite sure how or why or if there may be an intermittent problem. Thankyou for taking the time to post some advise in the meantime... Fingers crossed it continues to work...

    Fingers crossed.
