X220 Volume Control Pops Up On Screen With Every Sound When Connected To An External Monitor

I have a new X220 running Win 7 Pro. I have it connected to an HP 2509m external monitor using a Display Port to HDMI cable.

 

Every time I connect the laptop to the external monitor, the laptop's volume control shows up on screen every time there's a sound (double clicking on a folder, email notification, etc). If I then restart the laptop while keeping it connected to the external monitor, the problem goes away.  That is, until the next time I disconnect from the external monitor and later plug it back in, when the cycle repeats.

 

The pic below shows the volume control popping up after clicking on a folder.  FYI this monitor was previously used with a Dell laptop without any issues.

 

Any suggestions?
