    The red & white plugs need to be plugged into the sockets on the back of the monitor, one is the "left audio" and one is the "right audio" off the top of my head i cant remember which colour is which just google it

    but basically plug the red into the red socket on your monitor and the white into the white and that should then output your sound

    post back if your stuck

    In order to get sound from your xbox you can do one of 2 things but both will require a couple of bits of kit which will transform the av leads into a headphone/line out jack

    Item number - L46LJ

    Item number - Qt64U

    The phono coupler attaches onto the phone leads from your VGA cable and then the stereo lead to phono plug then attaches onto the other end of the coupler.

    The phone plug can then either plug into the line in port on your monitor(if you have one) or into an external amplifier( I used computer speakers as they were controlled manually rather than through my PC.

    I've only put the links on to show you what you will need as im sure they can be purchased elsewhere although i got mine from maplins and they worked a treat until i upgraded my TV!

    Hope that helps
