is the speaker belongs to the monitor (monitor's built-in speaker)? more often the mixer setting should be changed, i think it has to do with channels, which in this case, the music is sent to another channel when the monitor is off but change to different channel when on.

Sounds like what would happen to the PC speakers, that are connected to the PC's sound card, where the monitor is connected via HDMI. When the HDMI is active the, HDMI becomes the default audio playback device. When inactive or the cable disconnected the PC's "Speakers" (sound card) becomes the default audio playback device.

With the monitor powered on and active, go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel Playback section. If the HDMI is set as the default Playback device, make the "Speakers" the defaul playback device and you should get PC audio. The only problem with this, its not a permanent fix, you would have to do this every time the monitor is powered on.
