08:30 pm - Grrrr...wtf stupid monitor
Ok today has been like, a rollercoaster between really really good things happening, and really really bad things. For the really good, refer to my last post, really bad? My computer montor just wimped out on me like, half an hour ago, so I ran down to the Compusmart in the mall and dished out 400 bucks on a brand new monitor, 400 bucks I really can't afford, but I need my damn computer. Now I've just realized that there's no place to hook in the speakers, so tomorrow I'm gonna have to go back and exchange it for one that _does_support speakers. Like wtf???? what kinda monitor doesn't hook speakers in this day and age??? hello~!! we're in the 21st century here!!! I need to watch my anime and tenimyu, I need sound dammit!! Grrr!!

Look for a headphone jack looking thing on the back of your computer. Plug speakers in. :P (Though some soundcards -like mine- have several headphone jack looking things on one card so just play with it. If one doesn't work, try another)

ah figured it out, apparently since my old monitor is an HP as is my tower, that's why cuz HP speakers always hooks on side into the tower and another line into the monitor, so i need new speakers that aren't HP >.< but thanks!!

Not entirely true. My comp was (...originally...) an HP, and I never had monitor-mounting speakers :3 (Though since I got it, just about everything on my comp has been replaced >>)

But yusu D: Sound is good >>

i guess your speakers attach to the side of the moniter?

mine are speakers which sit on top of my computer desk. and they hook up, to my harddrive.

but that sucks so much. i had a monter that the screen went pink o.O i like pink. but not when i'm watching anime, and all it is, is different shades of pink o.O.

but ouch O.O 400 bucks !!! thats expensive. you should of went to a used computer store. i went to one in town. and got a 17" moniter for 150 o.o but damn 400 bucks .......

i didn't have time T_T it was 8 already by the time my monitor wimped, and i've never been in a used store before so i don't really trust them (yes i'm spoiled XDD i always get either the best or 2nd best when it comes to computers). but yeah, the cheapest they had was 299 before tax and it was some brand i'd never heard of before, so i'm like..i'll stick with something i know, LG it is ><;;;

heh... LG is like... the most expensive you could've thought of, but then again, they're VERY good, so it's a good choice to make when put under stress.

try and check if you can hook one of the speakers to the other, they usually have that option, and besides, speakers might be very cheap so that's a plus
and if you have headphones that could work too :)

Either way, good luck, and you know, you can say hey every once in a while :P
