  1. So I just bought this asus vh242h monitor from and it has built in speakers. When i plug it into my comp with a HDMI cable the only sound i get comming out of my comp is through those speakers within the monitor.

    My question is how do i disable or turn off the speakers so I can use my usual headphones with my comp instead of just getting sound through those speakers?

    go to sound control panel, select your soundcard / onboard sound (i.e. Realtek), right click, select as default device.


    if you're running winxp, then it would be changing the default sound device, also in sound control panel.
