Use another set of speakers. Any other fix is likely to cost more.
My ViewSonic VA1912wb monitor's speakers started making making static noises and then stopped working. The monitor is connected to my XP PC via a DVI connection and an audio cable. When I change the monitor video input to analog, the speakers work. Unfortunately my video card does not have an analog connection. I tried all the troubleshooting tips* from ViewSonic tech support but nothing worked and they gave up because the monitor is out of warranty. Any ideas on what else I can try? Thanks in advance.
* All cables connected correctly, nothing muted, changed the audio cable, PC's audio out works with other devices, monitor's audio in does not work with other devices when video connected via DVI, monitor and audio drivers reinstalled.
