Windows 7: New monitor, HDMI connection between Pc and monitor but no sound

Windows 7 64 bit
New monitor, HDMI connection between Pc and monitor but no sound

Hi guys,

I decided to purchase a Samsung LED monitor and have connected it up to my pc using a HDMI cable. I recieve the picture on the screen but no audio, been spending the majority of today trying to solve the issue but have landed short.

My set up is a AMD A10-5800K APU, 8 GB ram and using windows 7 64 bit. The monitor I purchased is a Samsung LED monitor T32E310EX.

Currently the speaker symbol has an x next to it, when I click it it tries to fix the problem. When I right click it and go to playback device it shows Digital Audio HDMI (High Definition Audio Device) as my default device but no sound bars next to it. If anyone could help me out that would be great thanks

Have you configured your speaker setup to use Monitor Speakers rather than external speakers?

Hi cyclops,

yeah I disabled the Realtek High Definition Audio to see if that was messing with the monitor audio but I am still getting the same results. I also plugged my laptop up to my monitor and the sound works fine its just on my pc it seems to be playing up.

When I go to play back device and try test or configure speakers it does nothings its almost like the pc dosent recognize the monitor has speakers.

Have you went here and selected the monitors HDMI speakers?
Most monitor speakers are very poor. Right tick on each one and select Test.
