Where do you plug your headset, a socket on the monitor, or do you unplug the lead from the monitor & plug the headset straight into the computer?
If you plug into the monitor, and the headset works OK, then looks like either the monitor speakers have stopped working, or maybe a little switch in the socket has stuck sending the sound to the headset, & doesn't switch back to speaker when the headset is unplugged.
If you have to plug the headset straight into the computer, then the lead carrying the sound to the monitor might have failed, or the sound circuit inside the monitor has a problem. Or there is a hidden volume control on the monitor that has muted the monitor sound - button, knob or menu option?
