Can you take the trouble to specify the relevant outputs on your laptop and the relevant inputs on the monitor? Of course, somebody here can go to the HP-site and check the specs of both devices, but probably most members will agree with me that that's part of your work, not ours.

Assuming your monitor has built in speakers you would cable from L/T audio output jack to monitor, as you would with a headset.
