Sound: How to use a multimedia monitor?

I recently bought a secondhand Philips 107MB monitor with built-in speakers. The monitor came without documentation of any kind and I have no idea how to use the speakers. Do multimedia monitors have a sound card on board or must it be connected to the pc box like normal external speakers?

Thanks for any help.

there should be a stereo cable or stero port on the monitor, connect it to your soundcard.
