It would help to know whaat laptop you have.

I'm going to make four assumptions here; a) you have a TV with HDMI input, b) you have a laptop with HDMI output, c) you have an HDMI cable connecting the two and, d) the volume is up on the TV.
In control panel locate - system - device manager - sound, video and game controllers, you should have "High Definition Audio Device" available to select (possibly more than one) right click on on it and select "update driver software". You may also have to do the same with the monitor.
That may work for you, good luck.
