Windows 7: No audio through monitor speakers via HDMI

No audio through monitor speakers via HDMI

I purchased a new monitor and it looks great but I can't get the built-in speakers to function. The monitor has inputs for VGA, DVI, and HDMI and I currently have it connected to my video card via HDMI. The front panel audio jack is functioning and I am able to hear audio if I plug headphones in but unfortunately I don't have any external speakers. From the sound menu I have three playback options: Speakers, Realtek Digital Output, and my monitor. I would like to sort this problem out quickly so I can play some games without using earbuds.

Welcome splooge

Does the Monitor have any standard speaker jacks (for input) ?

I believe so, there is an input on the back with headphone symbol above it.

You probably need to connect a Male / Male speaker cable from the computer output to the monitor input

Saw this this on eBay for $2.60, but you could check, Amazon, NewEgg, & TigerDirect

Is there any volume control button under the edge or on the side of the monitor ?
