Windows 7: Need Help : Audio won't work when I attach my HDMI cable to my laptop

Windows 7 Home Premium 64x

There seems to be no such option seavixen. Any help? This seems to be an old model Philips HDTV. Got it second hand from my aunt.

Even then, I used this TV for my PS3 before the PS gave up the ghost, and it worked then. Does this change things?

Windows 7 Home Premium - 64 Bit

Hey, I actually just made an account so I could share this information with you guys. I ran into the same HDMI not playing audio problem on my computer, and the solution had NOTHING to do with drivers/sound cards/anything else like that. I use VLC player (not sure what the original poster uses for his media playback), and in the sound settings the audio device was set to "Stereo". All I had to do was switch it to "Mono", and boom, sound over HDMI. Hopefully this helps!

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

You may have tried this so I hope Im not being redundant. But, Im here to try and help

Alright, go to the control panel and make sure the "classic view" is selected. Then go to administrative tools and select computer management. So once you are there, click on the device manager and a bunch of stuff will line up in the right window with plus signs to the left of the icons. If there is a red X or yellow circle with an exclamation point next to any of those icons, you have a possible hardware conflict or problem. If its there, screen shoot it and I may be able to walk you through simple ways to fix it. Please provide as much detail as possible if this is the case.

So if this check seems ok and there are no yellow or red things around, you may have to dig into your BIOS. Your computer should have came with a manual on how to get into bios and possibly help you with resolving the issue.

While you are in the BIOS, check for the version and see online if you have the most recent one. If not, that might be your problem too. You can google on how to do it yourself and I would recommend to take your time and back up your data.

I hope this helps and as an FYI, these are just the main things you can check that will possibly keep you from having to chase your tail. It's hard to armchair quaterback a computer repair on the internet!!!

Good luck,
