I watch live internet football on a laptop plugged directly from laptop HDMI out to TV HDMI in and both audio and video are handled by the cable, no need for separate audio cable. However there may be a situation with surround sound or a separate sound system that an audio cable may be needed.

All this talk about audio, and not one person has suggested looking in the audio playback panel to see if hdmi is listed among the audio protocols.
This could simply be a matter of toggling audio settings.
You have to use one or the other though
you can't use the integrated audio while using the hdmi audio.
It must be disabled in the playback panel for the hdmi audio to start functioning.

At least this is the way it is on my system.

I've actually been into the sound settings and whilst I can choose between 3 seperate settings, two being HDMI and Nvdia High Defintion device. When I test both of these no sound plays at all. I've also tried disabling all of the devices and starting from scratch. It seems very strange that it won't work!

It must be disabled in the playback panel for the hdmi audio to start functioning. - Is this what I've mentioned above or something different?

changing the default isn't the same as disabling/enabling.

short of stripping the nvidia drivers off your system then trying a full reinstall I'm out of ideas then.
Mine was plug in play, I just need to tell it hdmi or system audio.

funnily I'm in the process of doing a warranty claim on my motherboard in relation to this thread. http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-crashing.html

I'm getting a new one sent out next week so once I've changed the motherboard I'll have fresh drivers etc
