Help with VGA cables and audio - 01-19-2007 , 10:18 PM

I just got VGA cables, only to find there's nowhere to plug the audio cords into my monitor. So, I went to radioshack and bought this converter (called a Y-Adapter) that turns it into an RCA cable (I think it's RCA anyways... it's just the basic cable). Now I got home and looked, and out of three monitors, one of them a state-of-the-art widescreen and everything, to find that NONE of them have spots to plug an RCA cable into. Is this possible, or am I missing something. If it helps (which I'm sure it won't), I have about fifty USB ports on the monitors. Thanks for any help.

Why do you need to plug a Audio cable into a Computer monitor?

Nevermind, I figured it out. Actually, I found some old speakers, so it's all good.

Note for archive:

Any PC monitor with built in speakers usually sports a 3.5mm jack - dual phone to 3.5mm jack is the convertor required. The Y splitter merely combines the audio signal, ot if used correctly splits it up, in the same way video signals are split to capture cards.

To err is human, to screw things up completely requires a computer.
