HP 2207h speaker solution

The problem I was having was that the speakers on the monitor were humming. Also I could not use my headphones on my external speakers because when I turned the sound up in Media Player or Real Player the sound on the monitor speakers would be high. I tried to use the cpu headphone jack but got the same humming noise.

I tried to unplug the monitor speakers but kept getting a low humming noise, some type of feedback I think. What I did was, on the monitor controls you have a speaker volume control I set that to level 2. Now I can use my headphones on the external speakers and still not wake everybody up. Plus if I want I can still use 4 speakers by just adjusting the volume on the monitor.

Re: HP 2207h speaker solution

HI i thought this thread might also be useful for my problem, since it also regards the in-built speakers as well.


I wanna use my own speakers directly plugged in thru the audio out jack, but sound still comes out through the in built speakers. I use this monitor for my PS3 which is plugged thru HDMI (and please dont ask why i didnt get a TV...) and i want to use my gaming headset WITH the speakers that i want to plug into the monitor. any suggestions?
