Windows 7: HDMI monitor no speakers-no sound from anywhere when connected?

HDMI monitor no speakers-no sound from anywhere when connected?

I have an external monitor with no speakers I use as a dual display along with my laptop monitor. No sound comes out of my laptop speakers nor when I hook up external speakers to it while I have the external monitor hooked up by the HDMI cable. Is there anything I can do to get this to work?
Thanks,
Bill

Right click on the volume control and then Properties,

When you connect the HDMI it becomes the default output device, even though it has no speakers.

You need to change this back to "Speakers" and set as default.

When I right click on the volume control, the options it shows are:
open volume control
playback devices
recording devices
sounds
volume control options

It does not give me a properties option.
