Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

I want to hook up external speakers to my Acer H213H for when my PS3 is hooked up to it.


Answers :

The method I mentioned should work for any video input. So if you're only using HDMI then you should still be able to use the RCA cables to connect the red and white audio connections to a set of speakers.

You won't be able to send the audio from your monitor to the speakers since the audio jack on the monitor is built to receive the signal, not send it.

What kind of connection does your external speaker system use? If it uses RCA then you can go straight from the PS3 to the speakers, if it wants the 1/8 inch (head phone jack) then you can get an adapter from any electronic store that will convert RCA to 1/8 inch.

When you have the HDMI plugged into the monitor, and the RCA (or other audio type, such as optical) then on the PS3 go to the display settings and make sure it is set to HDMI (if you are able to see anything on the monitor then it should already be set to HDMI).

For sound settings it should currently be set to HDMI, change it to use composite/RCA. That will set the PS3 to send the video through the HDMI cable to your monitor and the audio through the RCA cables to your external speakers.
What method are you using to connect to the monitor?

If you are using the HDMI -> DVI adapter it does not support sound. HDMI does, but DVI does not.

If that's the way you are set up then all you need to do is use the HDMI -> DVI adapter for your video and use the regular RCA connections for audio.

You can set the video and audio settings in the PS3 with the "Display Settings" and "Sounds Settings"

That way you just use the red and white RCA ends to connect to a speaker system, the yellow won't be in use at all.

Recently, I purchased an Acer H233H LCD Monitor with the HP e9180f Desktop. However, the built-in stereo speakers in the monitor are not working. The sound card in the desktop is fine, as headphones and my dad's external speakers work fine when plugged in. The monitor has a seperate volume control, which is also turned all the way up when testing the monitor speakers. As I do not want to go out and spend more money purchasing good external speakers, any suggestions?
