  1. Most HDMI outputs on computers are video only (there are some that carry audio but not many)

    Just connect the audio out of the laptop to an audio in on the TV, My LG TV has a dedicated audio in for PC connections (Dsub VGA or HDMI)

    Hope this helps
  2. Try locating your playback devices (on Win7 right-click the sound icon in the taskbar) and set HDMI as the default.
  3. Make sure your graphics card is updated. That was my problem, I learned that the sound driver in the laptop has nothing to do with it the HDMI output is controlled by the graphics card.

    ^^^ Yes since only the graphics card can output data through HDMI the graphics driver must be updated.
