Hi everyone,

I recently built a PC for gaming purposes. Only problem is that my PC isn't picking up my headset. I looked online for a solution (did the usual checks) and even asked in a couple other places. I'm running my speakers directly to my Acer monitor to play sound.

I noticed that my computer is missing Realtek audio manager so I tried downloading and installing. However I don't see it installed anywhere when I restart my PC (which itself takes forever to do). Not sure if this has anything to do with it?

Anyone else have/has had this problem? I would rather not go without being able to speak to friends online lol.

Add your system specs and the monitor make & model as well.
Monitors often need an audio cables connected to the rear PC jacks to pass the headset thru or are sound only (no mic).

Yes you need to connect an audio cable to the back of the monitor for the speakers to work.
Please be aware that monitor speakers usually are not very good at all.
Will a regular aux cable work? Also they're not monitor speakers, it's a set of Logitech speakers. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

Which model?
If it uses a normal 3.5mm cable then yes, connect that to the green audio port on the back of the pc.
If it connects via USB then typically the drivers will install when you plug them in but read the manual for the speakers first. Sometimes drivers need to be installed before you plug them in.
