Probably missing something silly

Postby Jez » Thu Dec 29, 2011 2:14 pm

Hey guys maybe you can help with a question

Im use a Laptop linked via HDMI to watch stuff on my TV - with my sons laptop it works fine - picture, sound, all that - perfect on the TV

With mine - i get perfect picture but no sound through the TV - ive faffed with a few basic things but im not sure im just missing some simple setting that might fix it - any ideas?

Both laptops are Win7 both less than 2 years old.

Right-Click on speaker icon in the bottom right corner of your screen > Playback Devices > See if the telly's speakers show up there?

EDIT: When it's all plugged up, does the sound still come from your lappy?

What laptop? I remember I had to do some faffing with my Dell, there was a separate audio manager in control panel that wasn't set right.

When you check in the playback devices list is there a HDMI device listed at all?

Make sure that it shows you all devices (and not just active ones), there should be a menu option somewhere.
