Thanks so much for the reply. I have external speakers from my previous monitor, however there is nowhere to plug them in. There are only 3 plugs on the backside which connect to the computer and printer and one is unused. They are marked ac-in, d-sub, and dvi-d. The dvi-d is the one that's unused. This new monitor is an LG W2053TX.
If these external expeakers look something like these.. http://www.kelley.iu.edu/TS/z_images/AS501ultra.jpg
those are made specifically for Dell monitors on very exclusive models and they will not fit any other, as the monitor itself provides the power and has the audio output for them.

You need to connect an external set of speakers to the Audio output of the harddrive, as you put it. At the rear, or some other convenient place you should find a set of at least three, "Jacks" locate the "Green" output Jack, and use that to feed the powered speakers, you then will be able to hear sounds....
As I can see from the monitor specifications there is no audio connectivity. This means that there is no audio 3,5mm jack for the audio from the pc to feed into the screen. So you have to use an external audio system (speakers) for the audio.

Your HP2009M monitor supports (3) methods of accepting signals from a computer. They are: 1) VGA, 2) DVI and, 3) HDMI.
You would connect the computer to the monitor using one connection only. Generally the VGA is the least desirable as it is an analog signal. The DVI and HDMI method provide digital paths into the monitor and often perform better. Your computer may only offer 1 or 2 connection choices, so you'll have to choose a cable type that is supported by both the computer and the monitor. The HDMI choice will pass audio signals to the the speakers in the monitor without needing to run a second cable between the stereo audio jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor (located next to the HDMI jack) or to a set of external speakers (unless of course you prefer the external speakers).
The message you're seeing is normal. Once the monitor is connected to your computer, there will only be one active selection; VGA, DVI or HDMI. Since you're using the analog VGA jacks and cable, it is expected that you'll see a message that there is no signal present on the DVI (and HDMI) inputs when attempting to view signals on other inputs.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply, thank you.
Your monitor has internal speakers, so all you have is to connect the greenish jack on the monitor with the same jack on your pc (at the back panel you will see a green jack, a blue one. a red one and depending on the audio card some more, so connect it at the green jack). Doing this you will get audio from your monitor's speakers.

You would need to connect the speakers to your computer. There should be a little jack on the back of the monitor marked audio. This will need to be connected to your soundcard jack for front speakers. Once this cable is connected you should have sound from your speakers. Hope this helps.
Well without knowing what color this lead is and what you did with this power supply and the vague of the problem it would be inpossiable to suggest where that lead goes please reply before rating thanks..
