HD crashed and had to replace. Reloaded Windows XP pro and now the speakers built into the monitor do not work. Could this be a driver? If so, I can not find one on HP.com/ The computer is 5 yrs old and the monitor came with it. The video works fine. Thinking the easiest solution would be some separate speakers.

If this could be something rather easy to fix, I would like to do it, in case I came across the problem again.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The speakers on your screen receive a signal from the attached computers integrated or add on sound card so it will be whichever one of these you have that may need enabling or drivers installed.
Have you checked the status of the PCs audio device in the Device Manager?
Go to Start > Control Panel > Sound, video and game controllers and then the + sign, any yellow ! or red Xs showing?
Post a screenshot of the Device Manager with your next reply;

To do a screenshot click on your Print Screen on your keyboard, it is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
