Hi! My name is Ameen and I'll be assisting you. Secure Remote Assistance is NOT REQUIRED (But Helpful)

I am sorry you are having this concern, I will do my best to help you today.

To answer your question -> See steps below:

The VGA cable does not carry the sound signal. Only the HDMI cable has the sound capability. You need to use there is an audio input jack on the monitor which you can connect with a 3.5mm audio cable from the monitor to the PC headphone jack for the audio to travel.
