Re: my hp speakers wont work
Sample testing is usually a firmware built into the monitor amplifier
ie the monitor is testing itself.
you problem possibly lies with the computer sound system.
Tell me more about this.
Is it an 'On-board' sound card or separate PCI card.
You can determine this by looking at the back of the computer- if all the connectors - sound- PS2 and USB are in the same panel - then it is an on-board system.
If the sound is separate in one of the card position then it is a PCI card.
The possibility is the sound system needs setting up- check your computer paperwork/manual and utilities disk for Audio drivers.

These speakers probably don't have built-in amplifiers. Check the outputs from your computer to see if they should drive speakers directly or if it is a 'line' output that requires external amplification.
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
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.
