Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If you have external speakers, you can hook them up to the sound output, or earphone output jack, on your computer's sound card.

Usually external speakers have their own cord(s).

(If your new monitor from online has speakers built-in to it, let me know its maker and model #, and I will find you a source for a cable that you can use to get those speakers working.)

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
