HDMI moved to the computer world because big screen TV makers make computer monitors too. Supporting one connector is cheaper than two, and since more and more computers are moving into home theater systems, DVI is going away and HDMI is taking over for on-board, and graphics cards too.
BUT most computer monitors don't have built in speakers. Most users have regular computer speakers (often 5.1) fed out of their motherboard's sound connections for audio. Most graphics cards do not have integrated sound support. It is most likely your HDMI output is only video. But, you won't hurt anything by plugging your headphones into the monitor and see (or listen to) what happens. You might also check your manual for your notebook.
