I connected my laptop to my TV through an HDMI cable, the sound goes through the laptop, but not through the TV. I checked in control panel under playback, and right clicked to show disabled devices, and the TV isn't listed. Any ideas to a solution?

You have to enable HDMI audio to send the audio to the TV.

It should be your GPU driver settings (i.e. NVIDIA Control Panel or AMD Catalyst are the most popular).

Control panel / sound! And you will see the hdmi port of your graphics card, not the TV.

I had the same issue, the HDMI device didn't show. I did manage to get it to work (how -> see below) and then I could set it to default. This did NOT solve the issue for me (although it does seem to work for many if you read the forums).

Try this:
- open Control Panel => Device Manager
- Click the little triangle on the left next to "sound, video and game controllers" to make it drop down
- You'll now see your sound devices, I for example have 2, one is "ATI..." the other "Realtek..." (depends on hardware obviously)
- Right click each one in turn and click "disable". Click "yes" when the warning pops up.
- When they're both turned off, right click each of them again and click "enable".

Should work fine now. If you click the sound icon on the bottom right of your taskbar it should show an icon of your TV (actually HDMI) now rather than the standard speaker symbol.

Kind of annoying for me, I need to do this every time I hook my laptop up to my tv... but it works. No idea why though, but it does it for me.

I don't have a solution but I desperately need one.

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook E752 and I get perfect video on my TV but no sound through my HDMI cable.

I have a Philips TV with four HDMI ports, one of which says "HDMI Audio In". I have tried both types of ports on the TV, I've tried different HDMI cables, etc. However, I first had to go through a DP to HDMI adapter.

When I view "Playback Devises" in the control panel the only option I have is "Realtek High Definition Audio Device". Fujitsu Tech Service says it is a problem with my TV (surprise!), not my laptop. Tech Support also says that there should be another option to select from "Playback Devises" but there is not.

PLEASE HELP!

Do you get sound from your laptop while playing or none at all?
Try the solution I described in the topic if you do get sound from the laptop.
I suppose it could be the adaptor, perhaps you can try connecting an additional standard sound cable from some audio out on your laptop to your tv and see if that does it

I get sound from my laptop but not from the TV. I have tried two cables and different HDMI ports on my TV. But today I went to another house that has an older Philips TV and the adapter, HDMI cable, and sound work perfectly. So, it works on an older Philips TV but not on the newer one. I had a chat session with Philips and they gave me the run-around about not having the latest system software on my TV. I spent an hour attempting to "update" my system software with what the CHAT GUY said was the latest version. But in checking the publication date, I discovered that it is a 2008 version... older than my TV. Still looking for the solution. If this helps you solve the problem, here is the Philips TV Model and Serial Number: Model Number 42PFL3403D/27 ; SN YA1C0819004053

I am convinced that it is a TV problem because now, as I am writing, sound and video are working perfectly with HDMI direct from an Asus Netbook and HDMI through an adapter on a Fujitsu Laptop, both to ANOTHER Philips TV that is an older model. So it has to be a problem with the newer (five year old) Philips TV and Philips Tech Services not been helpful.

Last piece of data: The Philips that works, "Playback Devices" shows P.C. Speakers AND a TV/Digital option. The Philips that does NOT work, "Playback Devices" shows only the P.C. Speaker option.

Anyone: How do you upgrade Philips TV System Software? I think this must be the problem... and thanks for your help.

I have an Acer with an AMD graphics card and when I tried that at first I didn't have to do anything accept connect. The all of a sudden i had the issue your having. What I did was what was said be under sounds in Control panel. When the HDMI wasn't connected I believe i had it set to realtek which is my sound card. When the laptop is connected to the tv with HDMI the AMD logo appeared as a sound option. I click on that and then the sound came out of my home theater system speakers.

So basically I had to go into Manage Audio devices (windows 7) then in playback i had to set the sound to AMD instead of realtek.

I think we are getting close to a solution. Here is the new information about my Philips TV.... please ignore the earlier information. I was transcribing the Model # from a sheet instead of reading directly from the TV. So, please give me the link to the system software update for this Philips TV: Model 42PFL5704D/F7

The issue is the TV not the laptops. Here is how the I fixed the issue after trying everything I could've though of: Turn off the TV and unplug it from the power. Let it set for 10 min so it can reset itself. Turn it on and plug it to the laptop with the HDMI cable. You should see it detected in the laptop and it should work now.
Good luck

HDMI replace the old AUdio video cables because HDMI passes both video and audio. On my setup when my laptop is connect to the TV with a HDMI cable the ATI HDMI output appears in \\control Panel\Sound. If i remove the HDMI it disappears.

Your TV may not be fully compatible. Remember if compatible the HDMI out WILL appear in control panel/sound/ playbackl

You have to change your sound default under sound. My laptop has my realtek sound card as the default sound card when it's not connected to TV. Then when its connected to another device My graphics card pops icon (which is ATI) up under sound and i make that the default. HDMI allows video and sound audio devices and the Graphics card controls that with HDMI.

My HDMI laptop into TV sound was working fine one day and gone the next. Not happy! After spending hours looking at all the info about this issue I finally figured out a way to fix it. I wasn't able to see the option of choosing 'hdmi output' in the sound options (it wasn't hidden) that is so often said to fix the problem. I phoned up Acer (my laptop is Acer) and they were hopeless. I knew more about the problem than they did and they did nothing to help.

In the end what I did was this:
Went to Google and searched for REALTEK HDMI AUDIO DRIVER
Opened the Realtek website
Accepted the terms under the heading High Defintion Audio Codecs
Clicked on the Windows 7 link in US1.
It downloaded in about 7 minutes then I ran the program.
Restarted the laptop.

Everything was back up and running.

Hopefully that helps someone that has tried everything else like I did.

Think it depends on your graphics card. It controls the audio through hdmi.
Im running on an Intel HD Graphics 4000 card and I've had this problem for months. Finally solved it!!

Solution: reinstall Intel Graphics Driver for your version of windows. Make sure your graphics card is on the list of supported graphics cards.
Im running Windows 8.1.
This link is for windows 7/8/8.1 64bit systems
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?Dwnld...

If you are running on a different graphics card just reinstall the latest graphics drivers from manufacturers website or install a graphics control centre which is associated with your graphics card

I think I might have solved this motherfffffff. Basically you need to go onto the Intel website and download a utility (under the downloads and drivers tab) that will check for the latest drivers. Download that, install, let it do its work and I reckon it will tell you that you need an update. Download the update, install it, restart your computer if prompted to and I think your problem will be solved. Please let me know if it works!

Hi guys

To resolve the problem of HDMI.
When you connect the HDMI cable into your Laptop, the sound is heard from the laptop rather than the TV.

The problem can be resolved by following these few steps:
1. Press the Start Button
2. Control Panel
3. Once you are in the Control Panel, click Sound.
4. In the Playback Tab, you should find 2 sources - TV and Speakers
5. Right Click the TV and click enable and the Sound is changed to TV (Changed from Laptop to TV)

If the TV is missing:
- In the Playback tab, right click and press Show Disabled Devices to enable hdmi.
- And than complete the process which I previously stated earlier.


Another way to resolve the problem is to connect the HDMI before turn your Laptop on.

I hope that this will solve the problem guys :)

I have asus x553m laptop. I also was having no sound through hdmi cable. I could disable speaker on laptop and would get sound through hdmi. I was not happy with this solution. After more digging around I found the solution for me. In windows media player under more options after right clicking on screen navigate to the "DEVICES" tab. Highlight speakers then properties. Change "select the audio device" to default audio device not laptop speaker. Apply this and sound should be fine. works for me.

Hi. I'm not tech at all. You must connect the HDMI cable to your tv BEFORE you start/open file of the movie. If you start the movie and then connect the HDMI you will have no audio.

Hey I know this is more than 2 years later, but I was having the same problems until a couple minutes ago, but then I realized that the problem is setting the TV's input source correctly. I had my TV (Samsung, if it matters) source set to DVI PC, and it didn't receive any sound signal. I've then set it to BLU-Ray, I did get sound, but sharpened image. And then I've simply set it to PC, my image settings are back, and now I have sound as well! My problem initially started from my onboard soundcard swapping the left/right channels and having issues with the 2.1 system that I installed after my old receiver died recently. Hey, hope you solved your problem by now, anyway!

Downloading the most up to date drivers for my laptop's graphics card (NVIDIA) solved the problem for me. Prior to this, my laptop identified the TV as a generic monitor (linked by HDMI cable). Since the update, the TV make/model is identified by laptop and sound is coming from TV speakers. Thanks Amj

Control Panel->Device Manager->Display Adapters->
With your HDMI Cable Plugged In, Right Click and Disable the Display adapter that is not your Laptop/Computer's Display Adapter e.g, Intel(R) HD Graphics is typically the televisions display driver.(This will momentarily disable the driver in your TV).
Now, Right Click>Enable the adapter you just disabled.

This should reset your television entirely and, in turn, Display the Device in the Playback Devices manager.

Hi please help! I had to reformat my laptop and now I'm having this problem. I remember now that I have this problem each time I connect my laptop to a TV and the past 3 times (first plugging into my TV, first plugging into my parents TV and last time I reformat my laptop) that I had this issue and I solved it after a nightmare few hours. Currently on my second hour and ready to scream!! Once figured out I'm going to write it down this time.

Same laptop, same TV, same HDMI cable. My TV is not listed in my sound settings. Done the disabled devices thing. Tried alternating the order I put the HDMI in (TV or laptop, on or off etc). Done absolutely everything listed including your suggestion just (which I thought had completely broken my laptop!!) and still no joy.

With your HDMI Cable Plugged In, Right Click and Disable the Display adapter that is not your Laptop/Computer's Display Adapter e.g, Intel(R) HD Graphics is typically the televisions display driver.(This will momentarily disable the driver in your TV).
Now, Right Click>Enable the adapter you just disabled.

This should reset your television entirely and, in turn, Display the Device in the Playback Devices manager.
If you have any further questions, please respond to this post directly.


That helped and finally solved the issue after trying everything suggested in this forum.

Thanks a lot :D

Go to Control Panel / Sound / Select your TV / Set as default.


That's what I had to do. Have HP laptop and had sound to TV after first hooking up. Know it wasn't a TV issue because I have my X Box hooked up to the TV and sound works fine through the HDMI cable, so I figured it had to be my laptop. (Windows 10) couldn't find to TV anywhere in control panel until I went to sound, right clicked on speakers, then clicked on show disabled items. Then had to enable TV, then right click on TV icon and set to default. Works fine now.
