Hey guys. I just recently bought a LG IPS231P(link at the bottom) and hooked it up. After doing so, my Logitech speaker's wouldn't work. I'm guessing it's because my monitor is a DVI monitor or something or that sort. I didn't know much about DVI and HDMI until I looked it up after my speakers weren't working. The speakers that came with the monitor do work but I would prefer to use my Logitech ones. To solve this problem, do I need a DVI to HDMI cable or something similar? If so, can anyone recommend me to a good one? If not, what do I need to do to fix this problem? It also seems that my graphics card ties in with this issue so I'll add a link to it also. Thanks for the help guys!

How are things hooked up? The monitor would not affect your speakers on bit unless you are connecing it with HDMI and using that as the default audio. Do you have both the monitor speakers and the other ones connected? If so, disconnect the monitor ones.

Check your audio settings to make sure the output is going to the right audio source.
