Preferred Solution: Sound not working, Only have HDMI Sound Output, But no HDMI port in PC

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Sound not working, Only have HDMI Sound Output, But no HDMI port in PC

the HDMI sound is most likely off your GPU but that series seems to not have a HDMI port so that is odd. If you can make sure your onboard audio is on in your BIOS and also run the tool on this page so that you can update all your system info for us. System Info - See Your System Specs

Hi, I've a strange problem with the sound output via HDMI. If my T460 is connected to a dockingstation and my monitor is connected to the station via HDMI cable I've sound output from the speakers. So everything works fine and I can also the monitor as device for sound outpu at the sound options. Then I change only one thing at my setup. I directly connect the monitor with the same HDMI cable directly to the HDMI port of my notebook. The video signal is still transmitted perfectly but the sound is gone. Also the device for sound is gone from the sound options. I've only graphics from the intel on board chip and all drivers are uptodate. I also reinstalled them several times. What can I do to solve this problem? Always use the dockingstation is no option, because I also want to connect the notebook to a TV or so and I can't carry a dockingstation with me all the time. Thanks for help!

Using an XPS Studio 16 recently the HDMI port I have been using to connect my laptop to my speakers has been acting up. After connecting to my speakers the output automatically shifts to the speakers, however there is no audio. When I open the volume control panel it shows audio output being sent to the speakers. So far, the only thing that has resolved this issue is a restart, however after restarting no settings changed from the time when the issue occurred.

I have made sure my speakers are searching for input from the port I have connected it to.

Any help would be appreciated. Also, tell me any information I need to give you in order to help you, help me.

A:HDMI Audio Port Showing Output w/ No Sound

When using HDMI, the HDMI needs to be set as the Default Audio Device in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound Panel. If the "Speaker" is set as the default audio device there will not be any HDMI audio.

Hello everyone,
I have a bit of a problem here. My AMD HDMI Output Audio Device is not working even though its set on default on playback devices and the computer and monitor sound is on. Was wondering whats wrong here.
My apologies if there were similar threads about this, as I just made an account and didn't get to check them up. Although I did search google and there were few cases with people that were using NVIDIA, since I'm not using it I would like to know how to solve this. I'll keep in touch and add additional info if needed. Thanks in advance.

My playback device for my HDMI output is an AMD HDMI Output. I just got a new Bush Smart TV after cracking my old LG. HDMI output sound worked perfectly fine on my old tv and it works fine on my other Samsung TV. However the soud only refuses to work on my new Bush TV.

The picture works fine and I can see everything perfectly on the tv screen, but the sound just wont work and only works on the laptop.

Whenever I test my AMD HDMI Output with this TV, I get the error message saying - This Device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing audio to this device and try again.

I don't get this error message when connected to my other TV(s). Sound and Picture works perfectly fine, yet the sound doesn't work on my new TV.

Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? I tried to update my sound driver, but it's up to date, and I've made sure that it is the correct playback device selected. Nothing seems to work though.

GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)

(Note 3) Simultaneous output for DVI-D and HDMI is not supported.

What I'm trying to do is output just my sound to the receiver via HDMI cable, but still use the DVI to my monitor for video. From the note above taken from the MB specs, sounds like this is not possible.

This is new business to me and wondering how others do this, seems little information I can find. I am ordering a HDMI to DVI cable so I can disconnect the DVI cable from the computer and instead run both video and sound through HDMI to the receiver, then the video to the monitor. Hoping this works.

If all fails then I am relegated to separate digital through S/PDIF optical link, to my receiver. According to the experts this is less than ideal since now, the multi-channel dolby and DTS signals can only be received via HDMI.

Wondering if I get a Blu-ray player for my computer how this is going to all work out. Hoping that HDMI to DVI cable does the trick.

Anyone with experience with this kind of set-up and the aforementioned hardware greatly appreciated.

And Happy NEW YEAR!

A:Gigabyte HDMI output to Yamaha receiver - no sound output

As you have a separate video card, its capabilities should determine how the video works, not the motherboard. The video is routed to the video card.

If you had some type of integrated Video on the motherboard then the motherboard's specs would apply. For example, I have an Intel i7 3770 CPU and this model has built in Intel HD4000 video which is routed to motherboard video connectors and thus the motherboard would determine how the video is distributed. However, I'm using a separate video card and thus that determines how video is distributed.

Hello, please help.

I have my laptop Dell Studio connected to Hitachi HDTV input, the problem is that the TV displays picture (although not in full recommended resolution, not sure why either), but the sound is not coming out from the TV speakers. The audio device manager shows as if sound is being used, the little green bars move up/down when something is being played but no actual sound is heard.

I have attached a picture of the audio device manager page to show you how is configured right now.

I'm desperate and I don't know what to do.

Hey all,

I have a problem with the HDMI output on my laptop. I've tried to research the problem and for the most part the answer is to set the default playback device to the HDMI output. I do this, and even when I click the 'Test' button, the bell rings through the speakers of the TV, along with other system noises like error popups. However, when I try to watch movies or listen to music there is no sound from the TV. I can even be playing a song, press the 'Test' button, and it rings just fine.... but no music. It's making me and I need some help!

A:No sound output through HDMI when connecting to TV

Hi: Probably, but you haven't provided any details regarding what model notebook you have. Plus most new HP notebooks run W10 64 bit, so I'm not sure if you really have a 32 bit OS or a 64 bit OS. You can see this related discussion for what the problem probably is and how to fix it, but you will need to use the Intel graphics driver from your notebook's support page, if it has an Intel processor. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/No-Sound-through-TV-connected-to-laptop-via-HDMI/m-p/585...

Hi there,

new to this forum but i've been searching around today trying to find an answer to this problem i'm having.

I've bought an HDMI cable to connect my laptop to TV, i've gone into the control panel and checked that "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices" are both allowed and still i dont seem to get an option for HDMI for audio. The picture has come through fine, but nothing I do with the audio seems to work.

Any suggestions please?

I am astonished by how primitive the Windows 7 sound system is.

The setup:
An HDMI cable connects a Radeon HD 6870 to my Samsung TV.
I use the TV for both video and audio output.

Windows seems to detect whether the output device supports audio and how many audio channels it has. The problem is, it does that in a very unwise way.

If I turn my TV on, and then start Windows, things work fine.

Now, if I start Windows, and THEN turn my TV on, I get no audio. The only "fix" is to logoff and login again so that it re-checks the TV (now turned on), and sees it supports stereo audio output.

Even worse: if I turn my TV on, start Windows and for some reason turn the TV off, the sound gets disabled as well!

I have never seen a problem like this surface from the order of turning things on.

Sometimes I like to plug my PC into my Blu-Ray Home Theater. The wiring is very similar:
HDMI cable from the Radeon into a Sony BDV-E280 Home Theater.

It supports 5.1 audio. My card supports up to 7.1 channels output through HDMI, and I have tested two different HDMI cables.

However, added to the previously specified audio problems, for some reason Windows thinks the output source (the 5.1 home theater) has only two channels, so all I get is STEREO.

I have tried updating drivers, even downloading different drivers, searching for some hacks that could solve it at all...

I found a thread once of a guy who had the exact same problem and got it to work on Linux ... Read more

A:HDMI sound output problems

Just to add to the drama: today I left my TV on the whole evening, uselessly wasting its capacitors and shortening the screen lifetime, while I was out so that I wouldn't have to deal with the sound problem when I get back home.

That's a major OS design flaw and I haven't seen anyone that had any of these problems ever finding a solution.
Your help may help many others as well.

As soon as it works without any change right after the restart. In control panel there is audio manger indie speaker, headphone, digital audio(S/PDIF). If I change to speaker as default it works fine in laptop speaker. But same way if I set digital audio it doesn't work. It only works after restart. Also as soon as laptop goes to sleeping mode (hibernate), I have to restart to get the sound output by HDMI cable to HD tv.

Hi all.

I sucessfully got bootcamp to work on my iMac, and the only issue that I have run across is that I do not have any sound whatsoever coming out of my speakers.

The sound icon just remains at the speaker with a red cross, and no matter what I do, I just can't get it to work.
In Device Manager, the sound device that is being used is 'AMD High Definition Audio Device', and I can't seem to find an update for it anywhere. Under the sound area of control panel, if I go to the playback tab it says that the only available playback device is 'AMD HDMI Output', and it says that is "not plugged in".

Would anybody have any advice whatsoever? I honestly don't know what to do at this point, I have tried to search on this topic but it just always seems to lead me to a completely different problem that doesn't help me.

Thank you very much in advance.

I have a mobo that supports optical out, along with a GTX295 that has HDMI. The problem is, I broke the S/PDIF connector pins on the GPU, so I can't connect it to the mobo pins. I need this cable for sound-over-HDMI to work, correct?

The second question - I am connecting to TV and home theatre, by the way - is what's the go with the optical? I did try for about half an hour, but no dice. The Yamaha receiver simply didn't get any sound out of it (TV optical out works). I did change audio output in windows, tried 'HDMI - no audio' mode in Nvidia settings, etc.

Is there some sort of option that is overriding my mobo optical out with the (faulty) HDMI out on GPU? I'd love to get this working..

Edit: Third question.. I am of the belief that the optical will only give me 5.1 in games if the receiver and game are both in a supported format, e.g. Dolby something-something. Is HDMI bound by these same rules?

A:Can't get sound to work through hdmi output through my tv!

I do this with my TV too

The first place I would look is to make sure that Windows detected the HDMI display properly.

Look in Device manager with the TV connected and turned on.
Click the Windows Orb (used to be the START button in XP)
Device Manager
and you should see a link to click for it.

In the Device Manager window see if there is anything under
Other Devices
or if any items have a question mark or exclamation mark on them.

If you see anything like that let us know what it is and someone can tell you what to do next.(it depends on what exactly you see)

Also what kind of video card are you plugging the HDMI into? I use an ATI card.

Hey Guys, I have a brand new Thinkpad P52 that seems to be having issues with HDMI audio.Essentially what happens is that when I restart my computer, all is well and sound starts playing from HDMI as expected.  But overtime, if I put the computer to sleep or let the computer idle so that it goes to the lock screen and then turns off the screen, when I return from either state, very often the HDMI output playback device in the Windows Sound playback settings just dissapears and I lose all HDMI audio (video works fine).  I have to restart my computer at this point for it to come back.Sometimes when I resume my computer from either sleep or the screen turned off state, the HDMI audio device will still be there, but the sound quality suffers substantially and sounds very "wavy" instead of a clean crisp sound.  Usually after that state, follows the HDMI audio device dissapearing entirely after a sleep or screen turn off state again. I have all the latest lenovo drivers installed from Lenovo Vantage including the Thunderbolt firmware.  I have even tried this same HDMI setup I have on my older Lenovo W540 laptop and that has no issues whatsoever. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've just received my Laptop back from repair and all seems to be well, I had my screen panel replaced, gpu replaced(from 570m to 670m), new hard drive and CPU fan. However the problem I seem to be having is that internal speakers are completely not working.

I can see that bolume bar in for my internal speakers is actually changing but there is no sound. My system is not muted (unless there's some secret button I'm missing out on) No matter what i try it seems that sound will not work through my internal speakers, I've plugged in my Razer headset(Kraken) that works with my other computer but is not even detected when plugged in the Audio jacks of my laptop(Doesnt even pick up the microphone) and this did work before I sent it out for repair. Sound only works through HDMI output into a TV/Monitor.

Now I'm not sure if this some software configuration that I have to do or something physical with the hardware but I would prefer to not have to send it back as it would take a month to get back to me and also the repair company states that if the problem is due to software then they will charge.

I assume it's a conflict that Realtek HD audio manager is having or something but none of my devices show up on the RealtekHD Audio Manager nor do I get a pop up when a device is detected(which is what normally would of happened)

Hello everyone, you guys seem to know your stuff so Ill ask for your help:

I have a frustrating problem with my brand new XPC Shuttle computer. Everything works fine, just not sound. I tried hooking up the computer via HDMI to a TV for the first time as I didnt have a monitor - sound works just fine. Then later I removed the casing and installed 4 more Gbs of RAM for a total of 8. In order to do this I had to remove and reinsert the videocard. Computer was never on during that procedure.

Now, I cannot for the love of God make this computer produce sound trough the (correctly) connected audio jacks while it is hooked up to a proper pc monitor - Ive tried with numerous speaker/headphone devices which all are in mint condition (confirmed with other devices).

My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. In the sound manager down in the corner it said at first only "Realtek Digital Output". I figured this could mean that somehow, using HDMI cable (as it was the first monitor I used the system on) that the system defaulted on a HDMI output for sound. It would not show bars for anything else, and Speaker/Headphone devices were listed as "not connected" - despite clearly being so. It seemed at first like a problem with drivers - classic stuff. Please dont go there: Drivers are installed, up to date.

Then I launched Realtek HD audio manager and checked the box "Disable front panel jack detection" - as instructed by the program in case I had proble... Read more

A:AMD HDMI output not plugged in,no sound card detected in dxdiag

The AMD HDMI is ONLY for HDMI audio and not for regular PC audio. Unless there is an HDMI cable plugged in, you will get the no cable plugged in notice.

Please post the motherboard manufacturer and model number. Without that I can't say what sound is on the PC's motherboard (for regular PC audio). But, if the PC audio is enabled in the BIOS and is Windows 7 compatible, Windows would install the generic, basic function, HD Audio Driver (Codec) and the PC sound would work. If the sound chip on the motherboard is not Windows 7 compatible (an old Win XP hardware) you will have to install a sound card to have PC audio.

The DX Diag, because the sound is not there, does not help.

Is there any driver / software (or hardware) available that can bridge the audio output for both the hdmi audio video card and the on-board sound card so that i can get sound from these two sources simultaneously?

using the audio settings in xp it only gives you one option to play sounds via one output, on my system one being the hdmi (ATI audio video card) into my HDTV which then cuts off the sound via the speaker system from my 5.1 audio from the motherboard. or vice versa.

can anyone help as i would like to have sound output from my HDTV and also the 5.1 speaker system at the same time? Cheers

I have a DELL laptop, model is Inspiron 15-7569. I have updated all drivers (BIOS, Intel Graphics 520 driver, Realtek driver, etc) using the tool "DELL update", which is shipped with the laptop.
My Speaker is Vizio SB4051-C0. I used "speaker test" function on its remote, and I can hear all 5 speakers and the subwoofer working correctly.
But when I connected the laptop and vizio speaker via HDMI cable, and then played a youtube video called "5.1 Dolby Surround Test", I found that the two rear speakers and subwoffer not working. Does this mean my laptop does not support 5.1 channel over HDMI? If yes, then can I buy an external USB audio interface? I found a cheap one in ebay called "Behringer UCA202 Audio Interface". It has optical output but no HDMI output. Although my vizio speaker supports optical input, the user manual states that HDMI has better voice quality than optical.
Thanks a lot for help!

So, the other day I decided to finally bring my parents into the 21st century and show them the wonders of HDMI... They were amazed. Anyway I plug the cable in and everything goes swimmingly. Until someone (my mom) decides that she wants the TV back to normal. So instead of switching the input on our multisystem TV, she pulls the HDMI cable (quite harshly) out of my computer, by the cable not the plug portion. I'm not sure what she did or how she did it... but my computer stopped reading its own speakers. I freaked and restarted the laptop. It came back on and it read the internal speakers again. Everything seemed okay, until yesterday when I tried to plug the HDMI back in. Now, it wont read the HDMI cable for audio. It transmits the picture, but the sound doesn't come out of the TV it comes out of my computer. I tried going to the speaker tab and opened the mixer, nothing was muted. I opened the device manager and it said HDMI audio was installed, opened that up and it said the device was working properly. I tried opening up the audio window to see if I could manually switch to HDMI and the option wasn't even there. I plugged in my headphones and they work just fine. I'm at a loss here. I'm beginning to think a pin was pulled out along with the HDMI cable the first time. But I don't know if its possible to replace just the HDMI port... Gah... Help me please...

Hi Folks

First question that I really need an answer for if possible!
I have an HP DX6100MT that i got from work - i installed an NVidia 9600 GT Graphics card. Thing is, in order to play sound from the pc onto my Sony LCD, i apparently need to connect the SPDIF. Fine, no probs, except - i dont seem to have an spdif port on the motherboard - i've looked and looked and nothing seems even remotely similar. I'm wondering if i'm going blind! Can anyone help - could it look or be called anything else? is it even possible that a computer that is like only 3 years old doesnt have an spdif out?

Damsel in distress call for help!


PS: running xp

I am new to the forums, please take care of me. My friends told me to post problems on this site.

Yesterday, I bought a 10m HDMI cable and I plug it from my TV to my CPU. Everything was fine. The only thing was one of the games which requires Port COM1 and COM2 could not access.

I tried disabling the HDMI sound and it worked. Is there any way to change the COM port for the HDMI sound? I tried going settings on Windows and could not find any.

I just need the sound because it's a music game, from the Arcade. Everything was perfect before plugging my computer to the HDMI.

I've had my laptop connected to a TV through HDMI for years and it suddenly stopped working. The HDMI output is no longer listed as a playback device. It now shows spdif digital out via HP dock. The picture is fine but there is no sound. Also when you go to the playback settings screen the green lights are jumping next to the spdif which is set as default but there is no sound. I have tried everything if you do a Google search on this topic it seems like it is a common problem but there is no specific solution. I believe the HDMI playback device disappeared after the last Windows 10 update. The HDMI is not under hidden devices but it is listed under audio in the control panel.
