Windows 7: 24" samsung HDMI and sound

07 Sep 2009   #1

Windows 7
24" samsung HDMI and sound

The sound was working on my SAMSUNG and I was trying to temporarily disable it, so I would not distrub my housemates.... So I clicked "disable" on the control panel Sounds gaget, thinking this would temporarily turn it off, like it does within the Networks gaget (I turn off wireless at work, and network port at home).

Well it did not temporarily disable it, it deleted it from the system. I have managed to get it to see the HDMI TV at 1080p resolution, but sounds
don't work on the TV since I clicked disable.

I have tried every setting on the control panel, such as sound devices, graphics, displays, tried the "find a device" all to no avail. How do I enable the sound for the samsung?

TIA, Rhino

I would try to reinstall the driver for the Samsung, assuming there is one. There might also be a separate driver for the Samsung's sound.

Do you have the control showing Disabled Devices?
Right-Click in the Device box > Show Disabled Devices.

But you know...why didn't you just mute?

I installed the proper driver for the SAMSUNG SyncMaster T240HD and it still doesn't show up in the choices (in the View logicearth posted.

logicearth>>Right-Click in the Device box > Show Disabled Devices.

Then I tried logicearth's suggestion, or rather I looked everywhere for a
Disabled Devices box and couldn't find same, can you tell me exactly how
to find it? I think I have clicked on every possible button in every view.
Not sure if it's under one of the device boxes in control panel or in device
manager, but I checked the right click in both.

Why did I disable it? Probably ADD

Thanks, Rhino

Hi, uninstall it from your PC through the Device Manager, and then reinstall it and see if that helps.
