Just bought a new desktop and LCD Acer Monitor. Model is R240HY. Connected it to desktop with an HDMI cable. Display is fine, sound panel says everything's fine and working, and I can hear just fine using headphones, but for some reason the monitor's speakers won't work. Any ideas? Thanks!
I have two options under "Sounds." First is R240HY-4, which is connected through the HDMI cable. The other is Realtek Digital Output. I tried disabling one and letting the other stay enabled, but this didn't solve anything.
To my embarrassment I don't know how to post pictures on this website; first time using it in years. However, my screen looks more or less like yours. The Monitor Icon (R240HY-4) has a green check mark on it, it says it's the default device, and the audio bar on the side goes green when a video plays in the background; for all intents and purposes the audio is fine, but I just can't hear it.
