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.
I have my Sony Vaio laptop (windows 7) hooked up via hdmi cable to a tv, works fine but i want to close the laptop lid so it isn't open all the time to dust ect. can i close the lid without it going in to sleep mode or shutting down? How can i do this?
unrelated Also i have external hard drives hitachi 1 and 2 tb. When should i backup/replace them so i don't lose my data? Are there signs or signals to let me know and are there more reliable options for storing that much data?
I wanted to get Skyrim for my laptop but the one weakness with my Sony Vaio is that it uses Intel HD Graphics 3000 integrated graphics and I was wondering if it will be playable. Also, if it can play it will it be playable at my laptops screen resolution of 1366x768?
core i 5 2450 (2.5 ghz) 4096 mb ram ddr3 1333 and intel hd 3000
i have 1632 mb shared memory and 64 mb dedicated memory what i want to know is how can i change my dedicated memory size can i increase it? in the benchmark shows intel hd 3000 in low resolousion can run pes 2013 with 35 fps but when i install the game (pes 2013) it gives an error and say you need minimum 128 mb of vram. i only have 64 mb vram so i awnt to know how can i increase i more to 128 mb?
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 was working on an email Saturday when my Sony Vaio stopped working & flipped over to the black & white Vaio screen. Since then, I've been able to reboot it once, but it flips right back over to the Vaio screen. At one point, I was able to get to the Advanced Boot Options menu by hitting F8. I tried to restore to the last known good configuration. It got to the Windows logo screen, then went back to the Vaio screen, then went to the "Operating System could not be found" screen.The computer has a One Touch Web Access Without Booting Up feature.
my computer likes to underscan when I connect to my 720p plasma tv over HDMI. it doesn't do this over VGA though. The problem is, In order to play Blu-Ray disks my software FORCES me to connect over HDMI, and my TV doesn't support DVI.I managed to get it close, but the pixel mapping is off. I can't get it any closer, as the adjustments only go by 5% increments.
When playing back two channel pcm music on my diy home theater computer, the output begins to progressively contain random static as additional tracks are played. The operating system is windows 7 64 bit. There are no issues with 5.1 audio as it is always clean.My motherboard is an Asrock H67M and my processor is an i3-2100. The computer is connected to a Yamaha receiver via an HDMI cable.Video from the i3-2100 is outstanding on my 52" Sony TV. I am using the on board Intel display audio device as this appears to be the only way to transmit digital audio output to the receiver via HDMI. The only way to get clean sound when the static becomes unbearable is to turn the computer off and reboot. I'm not sure it matters, but the computer does contain a TV card.
I have just built myself a new HTPC using windows 7 and based on a ASUS M4A78-VM mobo. I installed windows using a normal monitor via VGA and everything was fine however when I moved the HTPC to my TV a Sony KDL-40V4000 and tried to connect via HDMI the BIOS screen came up, then Windows starting screen, then nothing the TV lost the signal.
I am having a sony LCD TV KLV-26S550A as well as a dell xps laptop with this config : 17.3" screen windows 7 Ultimate Nvidia GT435 Card with 1 GB ram 4 GB 1333 MHz RAM
When I am trying to connect the HDMI o/p of lappi to sony TV, TV says unsupported signal. When I connected same cord with desktop, the LCD runs fine:means HDMI cable is fine. Now when I connected my laptop to samsung LCD using same HDMI port & cable it run fine. So whats the problem in connecting dell laptop to sony only. As all other sets are working fine.
I am having a problem with a new Win 7 build and have tried everything I could think of without success; hoping someone has a solution.
Background: I installed the OS with the HDD set to Native IDE, the system automatically loaded a driver that worked with my 50" TV and sound played just fine through the TV speakers. After the fact, I realized I had failed to configure the SATA HDD for RAID AHCI and so changed the HDD setting in the BIOS and reinstalled Windows as a new system build.
It failed due to the lack of a driver, and Windows being ever so "helpful", tried to fix the issue which it could not. After investigation, realized that the correct driver had to be manually loaded from a disc, so I wiped the harddrive clean, cleared the CMOS and started over again.
Problem: The HDD and OS loaded just fine, but Win7 selected a "generic PnP monitor" driver, does not realize the HDMI connection and there is now no sound. Manually changing the setting to a 1920X1080 monitor does not make a difference nor does deleting the existing driver, selecting other model Sony drivers, or reloading the OS.
I have spent hours trying to find a driver for the Sony SXRD (any model) with no luck. I have also tried everything I could think of to return the system to it's initial state hoping that Win 7 might reload and recognize the HMDI connection / provide sound.
Welcome any suggestions you may have. What is so bizarre is that there was an appropriate driver when Win booted for the first time but it is nowhere to be found in the application. (The list of choices does not include anything similar and Realtek HDMI Audio shows that it is "not plugged in".)
Look forward to any suggestions / assistance.

My Sony laptop VGN-FZ21Z VISTA home premium 32 bit has a little red x next to the audio on the bottom right toolbar. No Audio output device is installed is displayed when I hover over it. I have gone into the device driver to check the problem and no audio device is installed. I have tried to download the driver from the Sony UK website and it says object not found restart computer and try again. There is then a prompt to install with the correct settings and it tries again and says I have the wrong device. I have also reset my computer to factory settings and still that little red x is there. I have looked everywhere for the correct device driver but can't seem to find one for this model.
My Vaio took a bang earlier today and now windows won't boot up and I'm just getting blank screens all the time. I can't even reset to factory as I can't access anything. Hard drive light is constantly on but can't hear much noise from it.
