No sound from external speakers via second screen


Mar 10, 2015
My laptop is connected to a Philips monitor via an HDMI cable. I am trying to connect Bose external speakers. I get sound if the speakers are connected only to the laptop(via the headphones port).
However, if I connect the laptop to the monitor, I get no sound from the external speakers. This happens irrespective of whether the speakers are plugged into the laptop or into the audio port of the monitor.
Help please- but bear in mind that my knowledge of computers is very basic indeed...
