LG TV not playing sound when connected via HDMI cable

Q: LG TV not playing sound when connected via HDMI cable

As the title says, I've tried connecting my TV to my computer with an HDMI cable, and the video part works, but no sound plays. When I checked the list of playback devices, the TV appeared (as shown below), but it apparently cannot play sound.

I don't think I know anything beyond what I've posted, but if anyone could help me out with this, I would appreciate it.

Also, as a side note - I am completely unable to interact with any of these objects - I cannot set something as a default device; there is no response when I do it, and disabling the audio device only works until current sources of sound (like videos) are restarted.

If you highlight the LG TV you should​ be able to set it as default. If not, it sounds lik a permission issue (like non-admin account).

Hello, I just bought an HDMI cable to connect from my HP Pavilion x360 onto my TV. Unfortunately, I only get video on my TV but no audio. The audio only comes from my Pavilion x360. I am aware of right clicking the volume icon and clicking on "playback devices" to set defult the HDMI cable or TV. Unfortunaly, this is not visible even after enabling the disconnected and disabled devices. Please, anyone help so I can get the audio on my TV as well? I've let a screenshot. As a reminder, my HDMI is connected on both sides, and I have both disconnected and disabled devices visible. Thank you!

I just installed a gigabyte hd4350 in my hp a1520n desktop bc it has an hdmi output. picture looks good, sound works, however when the hdmi cable is connected to the my samsung lcd tv, i get no sound through my computer speakers even when im not using the tv as a monitor or when the tv is turned off. i get sound through the tv though. when i unplug the hdmi cable from the tv, i get sound on the computer.

is there a fix for this? i have onboard sound enabled in the bios.

i have windows xp 32bit. in the sound and audio device properties, under the audio tab, default device, i see both realtek hd audio output and ati hd audio rear ouput when the hdmi cable is connected. when its not connected, just realtek hd audio is available.

i know i cannot have sound coming through the tv and computer speakers at the same time. is it possible for the sound to be switched back to the computer speakers when the tv is off WITHOUT having to unplug the hdmi cable that goes to the tv?

Hi

I have connect my laptop using an HDMI cable to my TV. And from my tv I have connected my two HiFi speakers. When the TV is on an AV channel I have sound coming from the TV and HiFi speakers but when I switch it to the HDMI source channel, sound only comes from the TV and not HiFi speakers.

This is frustrating because I want to watch movies on my TV through my laptop and get the feel of some surround sound through the HiFi speakers but it is not working!!!!

Please Help!

Thanks

A:No sound to HiFi speakers when HDMI Cable Connected

The problem is not your PC but your TV and how it handles HDMI audio. There is nothing we can do for this, it is strictly an issue with your TV and how it routes audio internally (or to external devices).

I know this is one that has been floating around the forums for a while but I have not been able to find anything that works in my situation. When I connect my laptop to my TV (Panasonic Viera Plasma) via an HDMI cable, I can get the video to show on the TV fine but there is no audio on the TV; it comes out of the laptop.

Hi! I have this monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014146

and this cable

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812226013

Connected to a normal TV and HDMI to DVI cable to my lcd monitor at the same time it gave me an option at startup to switch to my HDMI source, but when I did all I saw was black on the LCD screen.

I was able to go into Display settings and switch it to HDMI manually but when it swaps to my lcd monitor its nothing but black again!

Do HDMI to DVI cables work for PS3s? My lcd monitor does not have a HDMI plug in. Only VGA and DVI

I'm hoping theres a trick to get this working or at the very least an adapter that wouldn't degrade the quality as much.

Hey guys. I have connected my PC to my HDTV (Sansui), and I cannot find an option in the TV for 1:1 Pixel Mapping. I need this because my TV is overscanning my laptops display and the taskbar and other images are cut off the screen. It is also quite blurry. I have the TV's manual here:

Hey guys, I'm actually new here, so I am not sure if this is in the right forum page, but I need help. I have had a problem with my HDTV and laptop for a few months and finally decided to start a thread for help. The problem is that the HDTV is blurry and fuzzy when connected to my laptop via HDMI. However, I realize this is an overscanning issue, because in the AMD Catalyst Control Center, whenever I set the scaling for overscanning to 0%, the fuzzy text and screen is fixed, but the edges around the screen like the taskbar are cutoff the edge of the screen. I do not think my TV has an option for "Just Scan", but maybe you guys can find something I can't. Here is the manual:

I recently found out that every time i plug in a HDMI or Auxiliary cable, my computer crash. I tried changing the cable to see if that was the problem and it wasn't. I just don't know where to look to start fixing the problem. I've considered that maybe the connector is faulty, but i'm looking for option before going to that.

I use HDMI to connect my TV for movies
I use the auxiliary Cable to connect a speaker.

I have an Acer Aspire laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

I regularly connect it to my TV monitor via HDMI cable and fall asleep watching movies (played on VLC or Windows Media Player).

I set the computer to go to sleep after 1 hour.

Multimedia Settings are set to "Allow computer to sleep" under "When Sharing Media" in the Power Management section.

Screensaver is disabled.

I have overrided my audio driver, since powercfg command suggested it may be a conflict.

If I am playing a movie without the HDMI cable plugged in, the computer goes into sleep mode right on schedule. It is only when I have the HDMI cable plugged into my TV monitor, that it refuses to enter sleep mode.

What could be causing this problem? Makes no sense to me.

Windows 10 plays Mp3 Files just fine. Connect an HDMI cable to the video output port, and then windows 10 suddenly wont play those files. An error message pops us inside windows media player and Grove that this file type is not supported. Also no sound is played through the HDMI Cable to my TV, and no sound is played when i click the volume bar on the bottom right side.

More detail:

I work for an integration company. We just installed a couple of conference rooms for a company in which we have an HDMI cable running from the table through the floor in the walls and to the TV. From there it breaks out into the Amplifier and plays audio in the room. Normally i bring my Mac book pro for testing but i purchased this Windows 10 computer as a test device. I did not have a second laptop with me to test this out.

However, With the computer and the HDMI cable i am getting video to the TV. When i enter my TV menu and arrow around the menu option my sound works on the built in speakers in the room. So i can confirm that the cabling is all correct. This is the identical setup that we always use. I have also plugged my Iphone into the cabling behind the TV and played music which worked perfectly fine.

Okay, so over the holidays I received a brand new Hisense television and I was watching movies and tv shows on my laptop on the big screen through an HDMI cable for a few weeks. Before that I was doing the same thing with the big screen in our living room for months. I got up one day and wanted to plug it in but I kept getting a message saying no signal. I had had it plugged in the night before and it worked just fine. Yes, I checked to make sure it was on the right setting, HDMI 1. I also tried plugging it in the other HDMI slots on the tv and it didn't work in those either. It is doing the same thing to our tv in the living room and it just doesn't make any sense. The only thing I can think of is that my computer has some kind of driver that just needs to be updated or something but I have no idea which one. HELP PLEASE!

Hello,

My laptop's screen goes black when I connect it to the TV via a HDMI cable, however this is completely new as it used to work fine. I can still watch things on my TV but I have to look at the TV screen where text comes up quite small and it makes it hard to do stuff, so I was wondering if anyone would know why my laptop's decided to start doing this, and how I can get it back to both screens working at once? The volume and everything else works ok, it's just a bit annoying is all!

I have Windows Vista Home Edition, not sure of the details, but I got it just when Vista first came out.

Thanks!

Hi,

Whenever I connect my laptop to the TV via hdmi cable my desktop icons are moved and auto aligned in vertical columns down the left hand side of the page (my desktop). I have to drag them back to where I want each time. It's a fairly minor nuisance, but is there any way to avoid this, I've searched but can't find a definitive answer.

(I've tried, right clicking and unchecking 'align icons to grid' but that doesn't make any difference, it still always happens)

I believe this is an issue with the change in resolution that is likely occurring when you connect the HDMI cable. If you can set the HDMI output to the same as the screen, then the icons should stay where you left them.
I had the same issue with icon location changes when another user signed into the PC and then signed in. My icons rearranged. After a lot of trial and error I found that if I set the resolution, scaling, etc. options in both profiles to the default values, the issue vanished. I don't think Windows 10 knows how to deal with resolution changes and desktop icon locations very well, although I vaguely recall experiencing this issue with prior Windows versions. I could not remember how I solved it then, but the resolution/scaling/etc. work around is acceptable.

I've had my laptop for a while, and I've used my TV Screen as a secondary monitor a lot. A while ago my computer updated to windows 8.1 when I fell asleep on it and accidentally hit the update button when it came up (oops), making me have to use windows 8.1 now. Now I haven't had many problems with it, it works fine and dandy, but I do have a major problem when I try to use my second monitor. When I run a game or movie on it, the audio comes out from the laptop speakers, not the TV speakers. Previously, using windows 8, it would let me use both.

I know that if you go into the control panel and the sound systems that it should show two speakers, but for me it isn't. I've tried lots of different things and browsed the web for an answer, but I can't find anything.

According to your screen shot, you only have the PC audio (RealTek) and no HDMI audio. Reinstall the drivers for your video and see if that restores the HDMI audio.

I have both HDMI and PC audio on my Win 8.1 machines so it should work for you, if the PC is fully compatible.

I usually connect my laptop to my tv to watch video files in VLC. Recently, I have been noticing when I connect my laptop to my TV and play these video files, the audio skips so much that the video is unwatchable. This happens with every video I try to open (mostly MKV and AVI files). However, when I play these video files without the computer connected to the TV, they work fine. Could the problem be my TV or my HDMI cable?

A:Playing video files causes audio to skip when connected to TV via HDMI

In VLC, set a delay between audio or video, or for the mkv's you can demux and adjust them. First, I would update your drivers, is this a laptop or desktop?

Hi everyone, I just got a new sound bar (Yamaha YAS-105) which only supports Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3, I think) and I want it to smoothly transcode all of my DTS or newer audio to a multi stream AC3 in both MPC player from the latest K-lite mega pack, VLC and Winamp, or rather, if possible, just in general. If I play something thats DD5.1 in K-Lite's MPC it neatly picks up the audio and displays it as DD on my sound bar, same thing goes for DD5.1 in VLC etc. but as soon as I play something in DTS or higher there is no audio. I've been googling and tweaking the settings already and after messing around a bit it does play sound through MPC but none of my Dolby lights light up on my device and it doesn't sound like 5.1 either, the weird thing is that no lights go on, not even the PCM light just the TV light is connected and it gives a sort of stereo with subwoover sound (so 2.1). If anyone can help me out I'd be very grateful, I know it's possible because it works with media boxes as well, I just can't get it to work on windows... Any extra info, I have an Alienware X51 RC1, Soundbar is a Yamaha YAS-105, like I said it's hooked up via HDMI to my TV and my TV through a Digital optical cable to my soundbar.

Dear Experts

I am using windows 7 64 bit on my desktop (motherboard ASUS P5E)
ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P5E

And I installed VGA SAPPHIRE HD 3870 (ATI RADEON Technology) 512 MB.
This VGA has a converter plug from DVI to HDMI.

Connected a 3 m HDMI cable from a converter to the Samsung TV.

I can see a picture on the TV but no sound

What I did for troubleshooting

1- download latest driver from AMD website from the link below :
AMD Catalyst
2- Follow the instructions here :
How to Set Up Audio on an ATI Radeon HD | eHow.com

No audio from HDTV when playing audio / video from a computer system

3- Digital Audio (HDMI) option was grayed out (not clickable) as can be seen in the snapshot below :

http://i46.tinypic.com/2d10aba.jpg

A:SAPPHIRE HD 3879 connected to TV via HDMI no sound

What is a Sapphire HD 3879? I can't find that model. I see a Sapphire HD 3870, is that what you mean?

Regardless, you aren't getting audio because DVI doesn't carry audio, so converting from DVI to HDMI won't give you audio.

I have the same issue in windows 10 home 64 bit-
HDMI monitor no speakers-no sound from anywhere when connected?



When I right click on the volume control, the options it shows are:
open volume control
playback devices
recording devices
sounds
volume control options

It does not give me a properties option.

Then I went to control panel and searched for sound. Then I saw the screen below. There was a Digital Audio as well and I clicked 'Don't use this device(disable)' on it by mistake and clicked OK.



Now, I only have Speakers option. How do I get the Digital Audio option back in here? I think that will solve my original problem.

I have connected my HP Laptop with Windows 8 to my TV through an HDMI port. I watch netflix and youtube. A couple times a day the sound will just quit working. I check the audio and it says it is still hooked up to the TV. The only way I can figure out how to get it working again is to restart the computer. This has never happened while audio was playing, just when it is not in use for a little while.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:HDMI monitor no speakers-no sound from anywhere when connected?

Right click on the volume control and then Properties,

When you connect the HDMI it becomes the default output device, even though it has no speakers.

You need to change this back to "Speakers" and set as default.

I recently tried hooking my HP G60 laptop up to my 50in Element plasma tv using a VGA cable to take movies that I have downloaded on my laptop and watch them on the tv to sort of do away with having to burn the movies onto a DVD. I had no luck with the VGA cable as I got no picture what so ever on the tv. So I went out and purchased a HDMI cable after do much research on the internet on what was the best option to hook your computer up to your High Def tv and found that using an HDMI cable was a great option as you can achieve video and sound from one cable (or so I had thought).

I hooked the cable into the HDMI slot 1 on the back of my plasma and into the HDMI port on my laptop. I can get perfect picture, but I have yet to achieve any sound coming out of the tv, I was of course able to get sound out of the laptop speakers but when I did some searches online of ways to get the sound to transfer over to the tv speakers, everything that I tried left me still with no sound. I have did endless searches with basically almost every search that I do or forum that I read on giving a different answer or way to go about it, and I am basically stuck about to give up and need some guidance or insight or something.

I'm not fabulous or a genius on computers but I am pretty decent at them so I will do my best to answer anything that I may need to. Just please be gentle

Thanks in advance!!

Hey guys,
Just picked up a used slimline PC and installed XP. I wanted to use it lile a little media box, so I installed a heigh height Nvidia 9300se from another PC into this one...the card has HDMI out. Looks great on the plasma, but I get no sound.

When I look at the board, there is a little 3 pin connector and the same 3 pin connector can be seen on the video card. I'm guessing I need a 3 pin to 3 pin cable? Right on the board it says "SPDIF_OUT2" and on the card it says input.

Here is a pic of the board, same connector is on the video card:

Am I on the right path to getting audio over my HDMI connection? Where do I get such a cable? I googled but the cables I saw look like 2 pin connectors.

A:I have GeForce 9600 GT 1GB but i cant take sound with HDMI cable

Right next the SLI connector on the card you should see a small white 2 pin socket.
With the card you should also have a small cable (S/PDIF) with the corresponding white plug at one end. That fits into the white socket and the other end which has two single black pins attaches to the S/PDIF out header on your motherboard.
Once this connected up you will have sound over HDMI.

On this page http://tech.icrontic.com/articles//palit-9600gt-hd3850/2/ , the cable is shown (along with the other accessories) in picture 2 -the thin cable on the left.

Hey guys! Quick question.

I'm trying to capture/record sound - not from my microphone though; I'm trying to capture what's coming through the speakers. This wouldn't generally be an issue, however the problem is that my monitor is a High Definition TV.

Basically this means that when I open Recording devices, I see 'Stereo Mix', but no sound actually comes through there as I don't use speakers, but rather HDMI from my GFX card (yes, it carries the sound too). I can select SHARP HDMI TV as the output device, but I can't set it as the input device. If I change output to Realtek digital, then I can record (via setting input to 'Stereo Mix') but it's useless as I can't hear anything at all. -_-

So the question is, how can I capture sound directly from the source, if my TV's speakers are the sound output device?
NOTE: I am already showing disabled and disconnected devices on the list, and all of my drivers are up-to-date.

Cheers.

A:Solved: Capture Sound Directly Using HDMI Cable

Hi KaILLERa-Ninja, and welcome to TSG.

HDMI ports are not usually bidirectional and are either input or output only. Typical HDMI ports on computers are output only.

Does your TV have any kind of headphone or RCA line level audio output jacks?

What is the source of the audio that is playing through the speakers?

A:No Sound Playing Through Hdmi

You may want to check your TV and make sure the Audio Input is set to HDMI for whatever input you're using.

May or may not be the issue. I know it is a major problem I run into when I'm doing home theater installations. Some TVs default to Optical interface for HDMI inputs which doesn't make sense to me since you have the high-bandwidth interface of HDMI available.

Nevertheless, check under the menu on your TV or test by using a DVD player or other source to input both video and audio into the HDMI interface.

A:S/PDIF cable into Graphics card to enable sound in HDMI

I'm not an expert in this area but does your graphics card have an HDMI output connector at the back? If so, you don't need your sound card. HDMI carries both HD video and HD sound. If your TV has an HDMI input, you just connect the HDMI cable from the graphics card.

Very helpful forum so thanks in advance for addressing this -

I have an Asus laptop running Intel Display Audio and I have it connected to an external monitor via HDMI. I also have external logitech speakers, which for whatever reason, sound a lot better when plugged in to the monitor than the headphone jack of the laptop (which has a much muddier sound). I want to be able to play music when the monitor is off/sleep, however when I do that, obviously the sound turns off. The settings on the monitor were pretty basic and didn't see anything to change it. Is there any workaround?

Its an explaination/review of a program called NetSENSOR and that softwares website is:

You can set it to play any sound file of your choice.

It constantly scans your internet connection to let you know ASAP when the internet connection is lost.

I hope this helps.

<edit below>

I was reading up a bit more on this product and found that you can include the internet connection name, and the login information to it, so if it detects your no longer connected, it will run netstart.bat and attempt to reconnect you to your internet connection. That seems very awesome. Im still not to sure about the program though, it seems very small time(not well known), and I would suggest you check it against known malware and or run virus scan before install.

Hello quick question so i'm clear and to see what you would suggest.

I have a new upgrade LG 55 inch 4k TV connected to my PC via HDMI to GTX970 I've read this TV supports audio also via the same HDMI cable plugged in to my video card. I'm a huge gamer.

Right now I have a X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card connected to a 4.1 Logitech setup w/sub. I've been using this for years and it works great for surround sound when available and EAX is always a plus SO whats my benefit to 86 the 4.1 and just go HDMI?

In that case I lose the 4 speaker setup correct and just use audio from the TV?? I can't see the advantage for this unless i'm missing something big. I don't use SPDIF output or the Dolby digital or DTS encoder from the card I assume all that you need a receiver.

Can I use HDMI output for audio and STILL use my 4.1 speakers? I don't want to invest in a receiver or anything like that at this point. What would you do if you were me? i'm at work now but I read if I go into the sound properties/playback devices I can choose HDMI output? I'm curious to see how that works.

thx!

I do not need a "to DVI" cable. I need a cable that will connect from the HDMI to my old fashioned big ole crt that has the pins and screws into the back of my cpu.

What do I need? JUst tell me what to shop for. exactly.
this is wat i bought http://www.eforcity.com/pothhdmid5m1.html

the connector for the tv is fine, the connector for the crt is not. I think I have a sixteen pin or a nineteen pin. I don't need any software do I? I have WMV and Quicktime and Realplayer. do any/all of them function with this kind of hookup?
 

A:HDMI cable

When you refer to the "Connector for the CRT" do you mean the connector that is on your old CRT monitor or are you referring to the video output connector on the computer?

If you are talking about the connector on the computer, its it trapezoid shaped with exactly three rows of round openings with exactly five openings (contacts) per row? If so, it is a typical VGA connector. The bad news is that VGA is analog video only and the HDMI connector on your TV only takes serial digital video. There is no simple and inexpensive way to convert from one to the other. If the TV does not have any kind of analog computer video input, you may need at least get a new video controller card that has an HDMI output for your computer.

EDIT: I just reread your post and am now not 100 clear now on what you want to do. Your old fashioned CRT monitor with VGA input will not work with the HDMI output of your computer. If your computer has a DVI output, exactly which of the connector configurations does it have as shown in the following link:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DVI_Connector_Types.svg

Note: There are people selling fairly inexpensive cables on eBay and on-line stores that have a VGA plug on one end and an HDMI plug on the other. I have no idea what kind of hardware they were designed for but I am 99.999% sure it will not work for your computer's VGA output.

HDMI cable allows only video transfer or audio and video?

A:HDMI cable

If your gfx card allows it the hdmi cable will carry the audio too. HDMI cables are design for both video and audio signals.

Hello Slam,

You might double check to see if your DPI settings may be set to something other than the default 96 DPI.

Hope this helps,

I have an HDMI to RCA converter cable to put my computer on my TV screen. However, when I hook the cable up to my computer and my TV, my computer does not detect it. I have a Toshiba Satellite A505 computer and run Windows 7. Any suggestions? Thanks!
 

A:HDMI to RCA Cable

The cable will only work if the graphics card has TV out capability to output analog signals on the digital pins. I suspect the Satellite A505 does not have this capability .

I am looking for a cable that takes component, and stereo audio in on one side, and ends up as a single HDMI connector on the other side, so I can connect my PC to the TV's HDMI port.

At the moment, I use three seperate composite cables, move my PC speakers around as that's what the sound comes out of, and it's a whole lot of hassle and a whole big mess of cables that barely reach.

I've looked all over for a cable that does this, it sounds like something people need, and I can't understand why I can't find it. The closest I have found is this PS3 cable. However the connector on it is some special one for a PS3, not a HDMI one. Or else, it would be absolutely ideal:

I live in the UK, if anyone knows of somewhere that sells what I'm looking for, it would be much appreciated, thanks

A:What is an HDMI cable and do I need one?

HDMI stands for high definition media interface, basically it's a 2 in one cable that carries the display signal as well as a sound signal. If you use a HDMI cable to connect your laptop to your tv for example, you'll be able to use the TV as another monitor, and you'll also be able to play music through your tv speakers.
With computer monitors, unless they have built in speakers that you plan to use, there's no real advantage of using a HDMI cable to connect from your computer, a standard DVI or VGA connection is just as good (Though go with DVI (White) over VGA (Blue) if possible there)

Hello everyone!

First of all i would like to thank everyone for the answers and help you share and i am new to this forum. I tried to search before making this thread but i havent found any answer that could help me.

I just bought 2 LCD monitors ( Acer and Asus) they all work perfectly But i have a problem, a huge one. The Asus monitor refuses to work when the VGA (acer) is connected and vice versa.

The Asus is a 23" LCD monitor, its connected via HDMI.
The Acer is a 18,5" LCD monitor, its connected via VGA.
My laptop is an Acer 7736, 2,20 GHZ, 4 GB RAM, 1GB graphic card from ATI Radeon.
So i beg you please to help me, i have tried everything possible, been trying for the last 7 hours and i even downloaded Ultramon but it doenst work either.

I only want them to work in same time, what can i do?

Here is the link, i even tried updating the drivers on the graphic card but nothing works.
Thanks in advance!!!

A:HDMI trouble when VGA connected

A lot of laptops do not have the ability to go to more than two monitors (Edit: this is including laptop as monitor). You can probably have both work if you close your laptop lid, otherwise, only the laptop and VGA or laptop and HDMI will work. (Edit: if you close laptop lid, the two monitors VGA and HDMI will work but only with laptop monitor closed)

I think there is a piece of hardware you can purchase that can turn a USB port into and external display adapter, but I don't know if it was GFX card specific or if your card needs or supports a particular piece.

My laptop suffers from this as well. I tried it and confirmed it after seeing issue on this forum a few weeks ago.

First of all sorry if it's not that Windows related!
So the problem is that my LCD TV has a scrambled picture when my computer is turned on and connected to the TV via HDMI. I got analog signal TV connection but the picture is fine while the PC is turned off. Yeah I know I should get digi TV but till then I would like to sort this out. The TV is a Samsung 40" LCD model LE40A336. It has 2 HDMI input ports. Tryed both with same results. BTW if I remember it right, I had the PC connected via VGA last weekend and didn't have this problem. I will double check it in the morning.
Maybe I'm using wrong setting with PC... wrong Hz or sth. Anyhow maybe someone has had similar problems and solved it.
PC:
GTX 470 DVI->HDMI
i5 2500K
Windows 7 x64
EDIT: The TV is the only monitor connected to the PC via HDMI. Sound is passing through the HDMI cable aswell.

the VGA doesn't transfer data signals through digital technology, it uses analog, that's why the picture appears correct on the VGA, the HDMi though uses a technology called HDCP handshaking, the PC needs to handshake the display for it to show the images being encrypted from the desktop, if that handshake doesn't take place then the image will appear scrambled.

you can read up about HDCP here High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia but your options are just to use the VGA cable, or if it is a software fault then ... Read more

I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1435dx laptop. TV is Dynex LCD (one of those no name brand ones ) I checked the drivers on the laptop, they all seem to be up to date. However when I go to Control panel-Sound-Manage audio devices, there is no icon with an HDMI label to select for playback device. How do I add the driver for HDMI (to select)?

I have scanned (and tried) numerous suggestions on this type of a problem on different sites on the web (including this one, under a different thread)

Any suggestions, other than try a new cable?
Thank you in advance.

I'm a little confused here

I have two monitors, a Samsung S23B350 and a HP 2159m

I tried to connect a DVI-D to HDMI cable to both of my monitors but nothing displays. It doesn't matter what end is connected to the PC, both dont work. But in the long run the DVI end has to be connected to the PC if I want to duel screen because I only have 1 hdmi output.

HDMI-HDMI works fine though, on both monitors.

Is it because it is a DVI-D to HDMI cable? Should I just buy a DVI-D to DVI-D cable? or am I just doing something wrong?

My graphics card is a HD Radeon 6950 if that matters.

I think I lost the driver for my TV when I was messing with the resolution. It said there was something plugged into the VGA, there was nothing in my VGA slot neither on my computer nor my TV. I restarted my computer, and now none of my video games will open. When I try to open RIFT, it says "Insufficient video card" and I can't play any other high quality graphic games. Before I messed with the resolution and the VGA thing, it worked perfectly fine. I'd like to know if I could get the driver back for my TV. Thanks for any help I get.
