? VGA stands for Video Graphics Array. There is no option for sound. You need to plug into some speakers with "normal" 3.5mm plugs. (or USB if the speakers use those.)

So? How do you expect the sound information to get there? I'm assuming you mean your monitor has a built in speaker. If you are talking about a speaker in your computer case it doesn't work like that. That speaker is only for bios beeps, not sound. If your monitor has speakers, you need a cord that has a 3.5mm "phono" plug on both ends. Plug it into your speaker jack on your motherboard and the monitor. Make sure you have your Sound Card drivers loaded as well.

In which case I'm not following. I'd need system specs for what you had and now have.

Audio is routed through the card when the card is plugged in. In other cases you need to get a new monitor with hdmi.

Are the drivers updated?

How can that be the best answer? (no offense to amuffin.)

What was the old card when things were working? I thought you said you were trying to play sounds through the speaker in the computer? VGA doesn't support audio. You'll need to use a second cable or switch to HDMI. In either case it won't make a case/tower speaker work.
