T520 sound stops working when plugging in HP Monitor

Hi All,

 

Any assistance would be great. I have a new T520 and a new external monitor (HP ZR2440w).

 

As soon as I plug in the DisplayPort connecting I lose the sound on my laptop. I also loose sound via the headphones jack.

 

Please help thanks.

 

Br, K

It likely routed to the monitor. The display port handles sound as well as video.

Does that monitor have speakers? If so you should hear it on them.

As for configuring it differently. I don't have the setup to experiment.
