laptop to tv via hdmi

Was watching a lovefilm stream from the laptop to the tv via hdmi, and the tv lost sound. so checked tv through normal tv mode was working ok, checked laptop was producing sound ok.
Went to control panel and sound, and ticked the laptop option for sound, but what has gone wrong, i checked connection to both tv and laptop and that was ok but i will double check.
I also tried a movie through wmp and vlc and still no sound, so am willing to listen to suggestions please.

The HDMI needs to be set for default audio playback in order to have HDMI audio.

Reboot the PC and see if that fixes it.

If not, most HDMI audio is generated internally in the video card so reinstall the video drivers and see if that does the trick.
