Hi i bought a Acer monitor v193w today. it works fine except i cant get sound from the monitor. I want to use it for watching movies I attached the cable from pc to monitor and the picture is fine but no sound from monitor. However the sound IS coming from the p.c...I'm a bit dumb with computers so I'm probably doing something stupid..any suggestions will help. thanks

This monitor does not have onboard speakers.

If you need sound, connect your motherboard's onboard sound / dedicated soundcard to external speakers. G

It depends on which V193 monitor you ordered. If it does have inbuilt speakers you will need the audio cable connected from the speaker output of your computer to the input on your Monitor.

Looking at the Acer Manual it looks like it could be near the power cable input at the bottom of the monitor.

i wouldnt have a clue how to get to my motherboard-there's no audio input on monitor at all - guess i'll take it back and get one that has

I find inbuilt monitor speakers very poor. I'd recommend buying external speakers & connecting it to your onboard sound / soundcard.

"thanks everyone. figured out what to do"

Ah, so it did have inbuilt speakers. My apologies for saying it didn't!

Did you follow BRYNIT's advice to get it working?
