Windows 7: Samsung Q320 - HDMI Audio

Samsung Q320 - HDMI Audio


I have searched many threads and tried many things to solve this problem, but my limited computer skills are beginning to show.

I have recently Upgraded my Samsung Q320 Laptop from Windows Vista 64 to Windows 7 64, and have had limited success with the HDMI. At first, the HDMI video worked, but the audio, although saying it was working, was not sending audio to my TV.

I have rolled back drivers, looked for updated drivers, etc, and am now not able to even get the icon for the HDMI audio to come up on the Volume panel. It used to before I started troubleshooting. Now when I connect my HDMI, the video works, but in Audio setup, it says that the HDMI audio is not connected. I have attempted to make it my default sound card, but the option is greyed out. I am starting to go insane, as I do not know what I am doing wrong. I have tried the connection from startup, etc, and no matter what, it is not working.

Thanks for your suggestions, I appreciate it alot

mortron, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Had a quick look here,

Q320 performance 13.4" - Q320 - Notebooks - mobile computing | SAMSUNG

and it looks like Samsung has most, if not all the necessary drivers for that laptop for Windows 7. I also had a look at the HDMI driver and it is nothing more than an audio driver from Nvidia to enable the HDMI audio on their video cards that support it. One thing to try instead of the drivers from Samsung is the latest directly from Nvidia,


which should also have the necessary audio driver in it (if you try it make sure to not install the 3D Vision driver if offered, it isn't needed and that video card isn't strong enough to make use of it even if you had the 3D Vision kit). If that one doesn't work you can try using Nvidia's auto scanner/updater for it,

I have reinstalled Windows 7, did a full format of my hard drive as well, and reinstalling all of the drivers again. Now I have it listed as being connected, all LOOKS fine, but there is still no audio coming out. Anyone else have any ideas?
