My Operating System is Windows 7  64 bit.

I have Hewlett Packard(HP) EliteBook 850 Laptop connected to Two monitors.  HP L1710 monitor and HP EliteDisplay E241i monitor.  

The audio volume is not working.  I'm not getting any sound.  When I turn OFF E241i monitor, then volume starts working.  Why?

What kind of connector do you have to your monitor?  You might have some sound drivers set up to incorrectly switch speakers to a nonexistant external monitor speaker through HDMI.  You should be able to set the speaker output to your laptop instead of external in the Control Panel.

I've had a similar thing happen with Displayport.  I had to force the selection to laptop speakers or headphones.

It's a DVI connector.  I was able to setup speaker output to my laptop.

Thank you!
