I only have this problem with 7, so I know it is not a hardware related issue. I simply can not get any sound out of my graphics card (seemingly) through HDMI. I have my bios setup to play audio from it. I've followed what everyone else has done when using the search, I have zero success. It worked before using 7, so I am 100% confident that this is a 7 issue (because it still works on Ubuntu!).All drivers and software is up to date too.
When I connect my laptop to TV through HDMI cable, I get both video and audio from it to play on TV. And if I connect speakers to the headphones output I can't hear sound in speakers, the HDMI audio is still playing on TV. Is it possible somehow to disable the audio on HDMI so only the video will pass? Or maybe to make the sound from headphones output to play audio as well?
I've upgraded from vista to 7 and I am getting no sound, I've searched, searched and tried alot of different things, I see alot of people on this forum with the same issues, but I've tried most of them. I've installed and unistalled all the different drivers from realtek, but no luck. I have realtek high definition sound but no hdmi output. In my device manager it says the sound driver is installed properly, but when I tried to test the sound it fails to test tone, I don't know if it has to deal with an audio codec. I have regular speaker that connect to a sound jack. At this point I am quite desperate. I've spent all night trying to figure this out.
i've twice installed latest drivers GeForce 285.62 Driver , i've been into nvidia control panel and then setup multiple monitors & it only detects my other vga monitor not the hdmi one, i'm using a brand new hdmi cable & can confirm i've connected it to the correct hdmi connector on my monitor, it has 2 hdmi ports and i've tried both, when i go into device manager & display adapters there is only 1 adapter that says nvidia geforce gt 545, should there be another 1 for the hdmi? i'm out of options, i even work in i.t as a breakfix engineer coming across similar issues like this but i cannot deal with this & really need some help so i'm really hoping someone will help me out here i'm wondering if its anything to do with my other hardware such as the xeon cpu? (a longshot but i've only just built this pc & never built a xeon system before & would normally go for core i5 or core i7)
i have a dell core 2 duo with 3gb of ram, and an ati hd4650, when i boot up, both outputs get the boot up screens, when it gets into windows, the hdmi output appears to be unplugged(not available for selection, just not there) it is worth noting that it worked fine under vista, anyways, when i switch the source on my receiver, or turn it off, as long as it is plugged in, it then gets detected, and i can modify resolution, and apparently it is outputting sound as well, i cannot verify this because the receiver is OFF, tried various versions of the catalyst drivers, and one of them worked, until i went into the catalyst center to change something and it went back to what it was doing i feel it is something wrong with the windows side or the driver, ive tried upgrading to the x64 version, ive tried different cables, different ports/plugs, it just wont work, i have no idea where to look in the registry to change when it is detected, but when i turn off the receiver or switch off of that source, the monitor flickers and the output is detected, this is frustrating because i wanted all of my home machines to be on 7, and i really dont want to go back to vista.
I bought new computer about 6 month ago. Hdmi worked fine with my tv and I don't know whats wrong now. I know its not the cable because I bought another one and the tv is certainly not because it has 2 hdmi. The computer as I said is almost new so a would be very happy if I wouldn't have to give it repairing.
splitting audio to two separate output devices in windows 7 x64.I'm preparing my primary PC to act as a Media center. Ideally I'd like for someone to be able to watch netflix, or online videos on the TV with audio and video running through the HDMI cable while someone else can use the PC monitor & desktop speakers to game or do other tasks. The issue is both gaming applications and chrome (or other web browsers) only support audio playing through the default audio device in windows 7. As a result, i'm forced to pick whether i want all audio to play from the TV speakers or the desktop speakers.

Doing some research I've learned this was a feature in win XP but was dropped in vista/7. On windows 7 support forums the Microsoft Support reply that it was an intentional omission win both windows 7 and vista.I know how to direct the audio from winamp, media player classic, and WMP to the output device of my choosing.I have tried three third party applications:Virtual Audio Cable: lets me play the same audio out both the HDMI connection and the desktop speakers.IndieVolume: shows promise as it lets me direct audio from applications to the output device i choose, but all attempts to get the software to change my web browser's output device haven't worked. I also think the software is not supported for windows 7 x64.J River - Media Center 17: media center software with an embedded web browser. Using this media center i can direct the audio from any media on my computer to the audio device of my choosing, but the embedded web browser plays out of windows default output device not the audio device i choose.
I've recently purchased a Samsung T23A750 monitor and to my disappointment when I try to watch a movie the built in speakers are not functioning. I have a Sony Vaio Z216GX connected via HDMI to the monitor (HDMI-DVI) port. I can definitely see the video, but no audio is playing from the speakers. The built in speakers are not at fault- I did a self-diagnosis of the monitor and the speakers seem to work fine. I also set the monitor as the default for the audio and even when Win 7 says its functioning properly, the speakers still don't work. Conversely, setting the default to my PC speakers work fine. I'm sure its not the HDMI cable- I used the same one to hook my pc to my tv with everything working fine.
Yesterday I installed a new external hard drive - following the installation - my sound no longer played through my television (video is fine, HDMI connection) and sound now comes ONLY through the laptop speakers.The option for HDMI Audio doesn't appear in the 'sound' menus. I have 'checked' "shoe disabled" and "show disconnected" in those menus. [code] I use my HD TV as my primary monitor for gaming, so having sound through laptop speakers and not TV is quite annoying.Perhaps my only solution is another sound card?
I recently done a new build, not with the same specs I have on here; i5 2500k p8z77-m pro sapphire radeon 6870 I cannot get any sound through the front+back headphone jacks, realtek doesnt detect any audio devices, however i can mess around with the settings to get windows to say i have speakers+mic and 2nd audio devices plugged regardless if anything is plugged in or not.
I have an IR RC Helicopter that is controlled by IR transmitter that plugs into the audio out jack of my mobile phone (which runs an app that produces the audio signal, that the transmitter converts).
I've recorded the audio out of the app via the line-in on my computer. I get a nice signal that I can decode into the component information used to control the helicopter.
My problem is that when I playback the signal (via the transmitter, attached to my comps headphone jack) the helicopter won't respond.
I tried re-recording the audio of my computer by looping the headphone jack out back into the line-in (not sure if this is a good idea in terms of feedback). I can then record the signal output, which is similar to the source one but fairly distorted. Does windows 7 equalize sound output or something funny, and if so can I turn this off?
I am running windows seven with an AMD Athlon X2 4850e 2.5GHz card and have a flat panel television setup via hdmi and a stereo receiver/ speakers through the sound card out. I'd like sound to come out of both hdmi and the sound port that way I can here music through the stereo but when I watch standard television programs I can here through the television and turn off the receiver. the only way I've found to control the sound is to set hdmi or sound card to default in the control panel>sound. so switching back and forth is a big pain.
I will try and make my first post as informative and direct as possible. I am having an issue with installing a NVIDIA Geforce 8400 GS video card into an older HP Pavillion 6040n
Windows 7 Professional x64 Asus P5LP-LE motherboard w/onboard sound Intel Core 2 Duo 6320 Processor, 1.86 Ghz Seagate 7200 320GB Hard Drive 4 GB RAM (PNY but I don't remeber the speed of it) Geforce 8400GS 512 MB graphics card with DVI and VGA outputs (no S-Video, NO HDMI outputs) 300W generic PSU
when I physically installed the graphics card into the PCIE slot and rebooted the computer the sound stopped working. the computer does not see any audio output devices that are installed. when I mouse over the small speaker in the bottom right corner there is a red x over the speaker, like it's muted, and it says "no audio output device is installed" When I remove the card and go back to using the integrated graphics card in the motherboard, the sound works fine. I am using the 3.5mm jack off the back of the motherboard to get to my desktop speakers.I have tried installing the latest drivers from NVIDIA, doing a clean install of the drivers (IE removing the old versions first)I did not let in install the NVIDIA HD audio driver that comes in the 260.99 driver I tried reinstalling both the Realtek R255 sound card driver and the older R235 Driver.Nothing I have tried has worked. Something interesting I have noticed is windows installs 4 generic High Definition Audio Devices. When I see them in Device Manager I delete the drivers and restart the computer, but every time I restart, there is still no sound, and windows once again installs 4 HD audio devices. Why would a graphics card render an onboard sound card inoperable? Would a clean install of windows 7 fix my problem? Did I go to cheap in selecting the 8400 GS? Could this be in IRQ conflict?
All the drivers are working and windows is detecting everything just fine, I can even look under the volume adjustments and see the sound being produced. But I am getting no output to my speakers! I've read through a lot of forums and tried both xp and vista drivers along with the recommended 7 drivers, all work but I am getting no output through my integrated speakers.
I am running a Toshiba u205-5002 with a ACPI x86 motherboard and soundmax it just not working for me. I am at a loss of what to do. I don't get any program sounds whatsoever, no startup, nothing. All device managers say the devices are working properly and it detects the speakers just fine. I am also not getting any output to my headphone jack either. I am using the 32 bit 7000 build...
I recently bought Creative A500 5.1 surround sound speakers for my PC. I then bought an internal sound card as i only had 2 speaker inputs on my pc, but then found out that my motherboard has only 1 PCI slot. So i had to buy an external sound card for the surround sound to work (this one) I connected it all up, put the wires in the correct places, but the rear speakers do not play any sound. I know they work, as I put the rear jack into the front output to test them. If I go into sound, then try to configure it to 5.1 I don't have the option to select rear speakers. (picture of what i mean) I can't go into enhancements to select fill speakers either as the tab isn't showing up in properties. And also, as I'm using an external sound card (USB), nothing shows up in Realtek HD audio manager, so I'm not able to do it from there.
I can`t get surround sound over the HDMI. I have tried old drivers, and forworth to the newest. Nothing gives me surround. I have a Yamahasurround reciver that gives me the sound. And it works anything else I have tried on it. Inside windows, if I trie to go to sound options, goes to configuration on the HDMI inside sound opt. I can`t get anything else than stereo.
Right i picked up a pc that needed some tlc, tried installing windows 8 and get the error so installed windows 7.Quick breakdown:motherboard - k7s41cpu - amd seprom 2400+graphics card - powercolor x1950 pro agp 256mbHad a few problems installing the video card - but after going into bios and changing agp to 4x instead of 8x it now works great - full hd display using a dvi - hdmi 1.4v leadNow my problem is I cant get any sound, having read and read i now know there is sound output through DVI (19 pins video / 5 pins sound)My question is how do i enable the sound through my x1950 proI have tried installing the realtek hd audio drivers but it just comes back no driver installed.
My motherboard has two seperate sound capabilities. The normal sound outputs [Jacks in the back, headphone jack in the front] and sound over the HDMI.I use our 37 inch flatscreen as my second screen, and if I put a Blue Ray in, the software asks me if I want to use the regular sound, or the HDMI [and the sound comes out my TV]
