Re: HP vs 15 the built in speakers echo
Do you have a microphone? If you do, and it is near the speakers, it will echo a lot. Also, check your soundcard settings. If there is an option for room ambience or environment effects, make sure you have them disabled.

No driver is needed for the built-in speakers to work. The built-in powered speakers work the same as a desk top powered speakers system.
You just need to ifind out if it is the amplifiers in side the monitor are bad or it is the sound card problem in the PC.
Feed the monitor with the sound source such as the MP3 player to see if you can get any sound from your monitor.
If it does not work then the problem is inside the monitor, but to have it repaired will be to expensive, you will be better off spending the repair money on a good set of powered desk top speakers system instead. Please leave rating if it helps.
Be sure to connet the sound card speaker and install sound drivers for the moniter to get it to work you can go to http//www.hp.com select compaq and slect your model to download the correct drivers, also make sure you don't have any speakers muted in the mixer driver by double clicking on the speaker on the lower right hand corner on the lower right hand corner.
Try using MP3 player feeding the monitor to see if you get the sound OK first. Are you using stereo male to male mini jack for connection from PC audio line out (Green jack) to Monitor audio line in (Green jack)?
the built in speakers on the monitor are only speakers, they are not run through the video signal cable and have to be connected separately.
many monitors with speakers provide a stereo cable in the package but dont tell what the cable is for.
If there is a cable provided there will be a small jack on the monitor that connects to audio out on the sound card.
There may also be a stereo plug combined with the video cable, that likewise connects to audio out.
If the hardware is connected, there may be a volume control on the monitor that may be muted.
If the problem is a recent thing for a system that previously had working sound with this monitor, try the mute on the audio settings
going to seem a dumb Q,
but is the audio cable plugged in, next to vga hp have a separate audio socket, the cable(supplied- 1/8 inch stereo plugs each end) fits between sound card speaker out, and monitor.
Pls check if the audio cable from the monitor is connected to the tower. Make sure it is connected to the green port at the back.
Also check the volume button on the side of the monitor and set it to maximum.
If this doesnt work, then try with another pair of external speakers and check.
