  1. i bought a old computer today as a "first computer" for my little boy, and I can't figure out what's going on with the sound - the monitor is a viewsonic 17ga perfect sound with built in speakers. The computer is a HP running windows xp. i checked all the volume controls and fixed the settings, but nothing. the speakers on the monitor are on (humming) but not registering anything. no luck with headphones either... any advice?

    Does the monitor have all the correct and most recent drivers? The integrated speakers might still require sound drivers to work. Have you tried to see on Viewsonic's website to download the drivers from there (if present)?
