    Get system sounds, but NO YouTube or game sounds. Help?


    Hi,

    I've got a weird one: I hooked the HDMI from the PC to the television and get great picture, but the sound is weird. I get system "dings" and whatnot, but I don't get the audio from games or YouTube videos. I've already tried setting the default audio device to the HDMI port, but I get sound from the speakers on the PC, not via HDMI.

    The video card is an EVGA 750 Ti SC, running on a Biostar HiFi A85W.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    If you have the Default Audio Playback Device set as HDMI then you should be getting sound only from HDMI. Sounds like that is not happening.

    You should have the NVDIA High Definition Audio and the regular PC audio (whatever that is) shown in the Device Manager, Sounds section. If you do not have NVIDIA High Defintion Audio, or only the generic Windows installed "high Definition audio driver (codec) shown for the HDMI audio that could be the problem.

    Uninstall the Video Card, in the Device Manager (do not uninstall the drivers) then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the Video Card. See if this corrects the problem. If not, install or reinstall the latest NVIDIA driver.

    Hey Jack!

    I'll give that a look when I get home this afternoon. Hey, if you can't trust a guy named "Jack", who can you trust? (I thought I was the only one left, by the way....)

    Hi again, Jack,

    I meant to post a LONG time ago, but anyway - just wanted to let you know that your advice worked. Now my son can do all his gaming on the big screen, complete with audio.

    Thanks,
    Jack
