Sound Issue

I custom built a computer and when I connect my hp w1907 monitor to it I cannot get any sound from the built in speakers. I checked all of the settings and they looked to me like they were correct. Can someone help me on this issue? Thanks

Can you get sound if you attach e.g. a headset?

I don't know. My friend said I need to get a set of them but I don't want to keep spending money on little odd and end things but I will say my DVD player will play a DVD but no sound will come out so I think if I can get sound there it will probably be a start of finding out the problem. My friend is a computer Tech and he said it was a configuration problem because my computer is a custom build and my monitor is an hp and has built in speakers. Let me know what you think. Two heads are better than one...LOL

Can't you borrow a headset for a couple of hours or don't you have one lying around. Even the little earplug types that come with a lot of little machines - as long as they have a 3.5mm plug. That would be the easiest test to see whether we are talking about a hardware or a software problem.

Your friend could have a point too. It could be a driver problem with the HP monitor. Did you look on the HP website whether there was a particular driver required for the monitor.

Another place to look: right click on the speaker icon next to the clock (bottom right) and go to "Playback Devices". See whether your monitor speakers are set as "Default Device" (it would show a checkmark in a green circle). If you right click on any shown device that is not greyed out, you can set that as default. If there are several possible, change them around. Maybe you find the one that fits.
