I have two HP Pavillion 9700US 17" series laptops and either of the HDMI ports have audio. Can the sound card be changed if that is where the issue is. Thanks

The 9700 is a desktop model number, the dv9700 series is a laptop but there is no dv9700us. And there's a huge list. You can update the graphics driver and look in windows audio control panel and see if it says hd audio that you can select. There was an issue with a couple of the nvidia drivers.

You are absolutly correct my laptops are DV9700 models. I connected the HP Wireless connect device to my Playstation 3 and I got audio out of that so it is a problem with my laptops. I've received an update or problem with the Nividia Graphics so I'll follow through on that. I believe I updated Nividia before and I had trouble with the update and had to do a system restore. I'll try that one more time and see if that fixes my problems. I can't help but to wonder why any manufacturer would install an HDMI port on any PC and not have audio with it. What do I know anyway I'm just an old Marine that has fun with his toys! Thanks for your help.
