Ok chief, need you to check your connections on the back of your monitor.
Simply follow the cables to the rear of the Monitor.
If you currently have a "green" speaker cable going into the green Speaker OUT jack and a "blue" VGA/D-Sub cable going into the Monitor Out jack then you monitor is correctly connected. If this is the case and you don't have sound, then I suggest checking the on-monitor sound control, located through the menu which is accessible via the little buttons at the front of the screen. These speakers by default are set to 0 (i.e.. no sound)
If those cables aren't connected but a singular generally "black" HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI jack then you video/audio is connected via a single cable. So follow the steps to checking that the on-monitor volume control is up.
Last of all, if neither of those explanations fit the bill, you may not have connected the audio. In which case either VGA or HDMI you now know how to connect them.
If all this fails you need to make sure computer volume is up, bottom left of your taskbar (Windows Vista) you should see a little speaker icon.
This should be located right next to the clock, left click on it to bring up volume control. Also make sure it isnt muted.
Short of all that, you'd need to check Audio drivers, which is a simple right click on the same Volume Control we just played with and then selecting "adjust Audio properties". If there isnt something in there like Realtek Audio Drivers, then we are missing Audio drivers.
Run through all that and get back to me.
