I just hooked up a Dell E2414Hx monitor to my Dell Inspiron laptop to be used as my primary monitor. After I plugged it in, the sound from my external speakers stopped working. If I revert back to my laptop screen, the sound works fine. Also, when I insert the disc that came with it & hit the "monitor drivers" button, it says it does not recognize the monitor. I bought this brand new from Amazon.

Are you connecting it via HDMI (HDMI out to DVI)? Usually the HDMI output also redirects sound, so you would simply have to change the default audio device in your sound preferences.
