external speakers don't work with new hp monitor

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just replaced my 12 year old HP monitor with a new VH240a.  Both the old and the new monitors have internal speakers which are of poor quality so I have external speakers.  My external speakers worked fine with the old monitor and I left them plugged in when I switched to the new monitor.  Now the external speakers do not work (their power light is on) and the internal speakers are terrible.  How can I fix this?

Your new monitor has VGA and HDMI ports and no speakers. How do you connect it to your computer, which cable ? How did you connect the old monitor, which cable ? Do you use SAME cable or diffrent cable ?
