Summary: Neither my boyfriend nor I are computer savvy. My boyfriend just bought this monitor this morning to replace a monitor that crapped out after only 1 year. The instructions for the monitor hook up are terrible. We have no idea how to get the sound to work & the instructions are no help. There is a cord for the monitor that we THINK is for the sound. But there is no reciprocal port on the hard drive. My boyfriend is ready to take the monitor back.
