    I have a Dell 3847 desktop running Win 8.1 My monitor is an HP W2072a with two internal speakers. I originally hooked pc to monitor with a vga cable and plugged the sound cable into the audio out on the pc. I went through the system check and it recognized the speakers and when I checked for latest drivers it said they were already at the latest. I made surfe speakers on the pc and the monitor were set high. Could not get any sound through the system sound effects tests.

    I then hooked the pc up to my desktop external speakers and all was well! So the sound card works! I did not use the audio cable that came with the monitor. Could it be bad? I doubt it.
    Checked with HP support and a not very knowledgeable guy said to get sound I needed to go DVI instead of vga. My pc has only vga and hdmi so I took a cable that went hdmi on the pc to dvi on the monitor and no sound again.

    Any ideas?
