Question about Computers & Internet
The HP W1907 doesn't have speakers. Thus, what type of speakers did you previously have? If a previous monitor had speakers, you will need external speakers for your audio output for a desktop computer.
If you have a desktop:
If you have had external speakers connected, first make sure that the audio cable is firmly connected to both the computer Audio output jack (Speaker (lime green) or headphone) and the speakers (if not permanently wired to the speakers). Next check if the cable was damaged by swapping cables or speakers. The next item to check is the volume output (make sure that the audio is not muted). The next item to check is the default audio devices. For a Windows 7 or 8 system, go to the Hardware and Sound control panel. (Under Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. For Win8, in the Desktop mode, click the Windows key and C together. Go to Settings (in the Charms menu), then select Control Panel. Then follow the Window 7 directions.) Under Sound, select Manage Audio Devices. Under the Playback tab, check that the correct audio device is your default device. (If you recently added a video card with HDMI, the HDMI port may have become your default audio device.)
The last thing to check is the audio driver. Check with your PC/motherboard manufacturer or the site for the audio hardware (often Realtek audio) and check for driver updates. (If you recently updated your audio driver, try rolling back the driver.) You can check the audio device status in the Device Manager. (From the same Hardware and Sound control Panel under Hardware and Printers, select Device Manager.) Scroll down to the audio device and look for a triangle with a red X or yellow exclamation point. Here you can check for updates to the driver or roll back to a previous driver. The names of the Control Panels are slightly different for older versions of Windows but the basic steps are the same.
If you have a Macintosh or Unix system, please add a comment with the OS.
For a laptop, if you use the on-board speakers, check the device drivers, audio output volume and if the service is running. For Windows 7/8, the component services menu can be run by searching for compmgmt.msc . Go to the Services section and expand sections to see if the Audio Service is Stopped. Restart it. (Please add a comment if you need assistance.)
I hope this helps.
