I have a old 2005 PC that the monitor (square shaped) died. The sound came out of the monitor.

So I went to buy new widescreen monitor, installed it and its working perfectly, tried to listen to musics and heard no sound, so I check the volume buttons and I realized there no volume buttons or options at all.

Is my only option left is to buy separate speakers? The monitor doesn't even have something for headphones to plug, so where I plug them?

You plug them directly into your computer.

Just buy seperate speakers. You can get some decent one for cheap. Got Logitech Z323 connected to my screen. The sound is good enough for games and decent enough for music. Haven't tried movies yet.

In the back of your PC there should be a little green port that 's the same size as what you would plug a pair of headphones into, that's where you'd plug the speakers into.

Most monitors don't have built-in speakers.

Thanks. My old monitor had built-in speakers, so I just assumed every monitors had them.

I took at look at my old monitor and saw its had a green colored cable where I plugged in the back of my PC for the sound.

One day, a couple years after owning my current monitors, I heard music playing. I'm not sure how - as I certainly don't have it set up to do so - but it was playing through my monitor speakers. This was the first time I realized my monitors had built in speakers and also the only time I ever used them.
