There will be/should be a separate audio cable that connects your PC to your monitor - sound won't travel via the VGA cable that attaches your monitor to your PC. Have you connected audio from the PC to the monitor?

This may be a silly question, but - are you sure your monitor has speakers built in? Not all do...

Have you had sound coming from the monitor before? You will need some sort of audio input on the monitor - probably an analogue 3.5mm jack.

Audio input can also be digital via an HDMI cable, but you say your display has only D-SUB.

If neither of these options are available, your monitor probably doesn't support audio, hence my original question.

Did you change any settings in the computer when you connected the stereo? Or maybe you need the right audio cable. Check this out to help you fix the problem. http://www.ihelpline.com/Repairs/I43?3p=1
