On the rear of your PC's case, you should have multi coloured sound connections:

Bit of a rough idea, and the make and model of your PC will help. Your monitor will support Stereo only, so a 3.5 mm to 3.5 mm lead should be what you need.

Post back with the model of your PC and we can investigate further.

You connect the Green outlet on the tower to an connector on the monitor.

It should be a mini-jackplug at each end.

I see your monitor has two independant inputs, so you'll have to select which one you use in the monitor controls. Probably Audio1 will be the default.

This is the type of cable click here you can buy them just about any computer or TV/audio shop.
