You have to use a separate connection from the PC's GREEN Speaker out jack to the monitor. Along with the audio cable to the monitor, some monitors also require a separate power supply for the audio. You didn't provide any specs as to what the Monitor is so I can't say for sure in your case.
The "Speakers" should be set to the Default Audio Playback device in the Sound Panel. The HDMI is a separate connection and is only active if you have an HDMI cable plugged in - but that would not get you audio in your monitor's speakers.
You must have "Speakers" in your Sound panel in order to get the speaker output audio. "High Definition Audio Device" usually suggests the generic Windows installed sound driver and in many cases you need the PC vendor (or motherboard vendor in the case of a home built system) sound drivers for proper operation.
This is all I can tell you without any system specs.
Ya. I'm using the PC's Green jack too.
I just included I'm using the VGA/DVI thing because I wasn't sure if it contains audio as well.
I don't know what specs to include. The monitor is HP w1907. The monitor is also plugged into the wall, so it has an separate power source.
It could produce sound when it was plugged into my other PC tower. In my sound panel the only thing is the HDMI I mentioned, there isnt a "Speaker"
I don't know what other information to provide.
