    Your "Speakers" are normally the default playback device. Digital is for the S/PDIF output on PC's that have that and usually used to feed a surround sound system.

    Some PC's also have HDMI as a default audio playback device, but that is only when an HDMI cable is plugged in for both video and audio to a TV.

    I guess razwalker also has IDT audio hardware?
    Try re-installing the sound driver from HP's website.

    We don't know the particular model so you'll need top search for that yourself on google or here:
