Get sound from Speakers while connected the monitor with HDMI

Hi,
I am using my ViewSonic 22" LED Monitor both with my PC & as a TV with Set top box. My Set Top Box is having an HDMI port through which I am getting the Audio+Video both. Now I would like to use my external Speakers to publish sound rather than my monitor's internal Speakers, with HDMI still connected. Is there any solution? My monitor is also having 3.5" Audio out jack.
Thanks...

  1. Plug your speakers into the audio jack. Normally the green jack.
    Go to control panel
    Click the sound icon
    In playback you will see 2 or 3 options. One will be labeled HDMI audio one will be labeled Speakers (SoundMax or Realtek HD, or creative soundblaster) depending on the sound chip your board has.
    Right click on the item that is not HDMI and hit "set as default"
    Now all sound will be sent to the audio port instead of the hdmi.

    Right click on Sound, video, and game controllers and select Detect Hardware Changes from the drop down menu.
    The options should appear.

    This message is from me Susan Avery - Normally the green jack. - my green jack shows headphones and the yellow jack shows microphone - however, I used to have the external speakers plugged into the micriphone jack and sound played through my speakers just fine - over Xmas my daughter unplugged that and plugged the speaker jack into her IPhone to play Xmas songs - she unplugged it and now it won't work through either of those jacks - I've gone in like you said and changed the source to all 3 of the choices I have on my Window's 7 computer but each one of them makes no difference if I set them as default - it still doesn't work - the sound goes to the internal speaker on the monitor now instead which is crappy. I've tried everything but nothing is working - weird! and a pain - none of them by the way, say anything about HDMI - it is like the audio port stopped working and I also can't remember whether the green speaker line was hooked up before to the green earphone jack or the yellow microphone jack (symbols)
