Connected PC with HDMI Cable to TV but No Sound | Solution
You've connected your desktop PC or laptop with an HDMI cable to your TV, but there's NO sound coming out of your TV speakers while playing a movie or video.
This tutorial will show you in a few simple steps how to solve this sound problem in Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
Your problem has probably something to do with a sound setting in Windows. I will show you how to change this setting. Just follow the next few steps:
- Right-click on the speaker icon located in the Windows notification area (system tray) and choose "Playback devices".
- Right-click on "HDMI", "Digital Audio", "High Definition Audio Device" or the name of your TV and choose "Set as Default Device".
- Click on "OK" to save the setting and to close the settings window.
If you want to use your computer's speakers again, then right-click on "Speakers" and choose "Set as Default Device".
