    Help: No sound via hdmi

    ok so im trying to connect my pc to my tv via hdmi so i can watch some films ive got that I cant watch on my ps3 (over 4gb, file splitting is very hit and miss etc etc) anyway my laptop (acer aspire 7741G) has a hdmi out, should be easy no ? plug and play. anyway i plug it in, and picture works fine. however I cant get any sound. ive messed with all the settings making the default device the hdmi out, ive tried different programs (in power dvd I turn it up to the max but it still says volume 0% so it clearly knows something is wrong) ive downloaded and install the latest drivers for my graphics card -ATI mobility radeon HD5470 (512MB)- ive downloaded realtech audio drivers again. and still nothing. now i know its my laptop because my sisters aspire (newer model but not quite as good specs) worked fine, as did her old hp laptop that i recently did a clean windows install on (going to give it to my uncle) and nothing fancy on it at all. really this should just work. I've tried googling the problem but all suggest the same thing of changing the default device settings (which ive done hundreds of times)

    I quite literally have run out of ideas of what might be wrong. so help please guys.

    Ok, here's what you should do. Go buy a 2.1 speaker system, and connect it to your headphone jack. BAM! Instant sound.

    Did you also download and install the ATI HDMI Audio driver too its on the download page a bit further below http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/...&GetDown=false

    You also need that as well as the REALTEK HD AUDIO driver I use HDMI to my HDTV and with them both installed it works fine.

    yeah nak was right, i hadnt re-installed the ATI hdmi driver. thanks mate.

    (this was never an issue at uni becuase the location of my tv was right next to my latptop so I just used my 2.1 logitechs for the sound (better anyway) unfortunately in my room the rearanagement would leave cables all over the shop, or just sound coming from one side.


    and xelios, i have a 2.1 speaker system, what self respecting nerd doesnt have one for his computer ? the $#@! you think i listen to music with, $#@!ty laptop speakers ??

    Usually it auto detects and switches the sound to the TV device.
    ITs pretty good sound quality as well.
    Not used speakers of any sort on a PC since 2003.

    was going to suggest why dont you stream it but whats the point its a laptop so you an take it to the TV very easily.

    Because I left all my Ethernet cables at university and over the wireless network the films lag a big. It's like watching YouTube on dial up some times. Can't be dealing with it

    Or you could buy a laptop with decent speakers. I have a feeling the laptop I have in mind will outdo your 2.1 system.

    No laptops speakers will ever out do a decent pair of 2.1 speakers. I know it wouldn't be able to out do mine anyway.

    Most 2.1 speakers really aren't that good.

    The speakers on the current dell xps laptops have received much praise from reviews discussing how much better they are than the speakers on other laptops and make a dedicated speaker system superfluous for most.

    My speakers aren't great but there pretty decent. I'll find a link when I get home. They were about 50/60 quid a few years back

    These are my 2.1's

    No laptop will ever come close to my speakers. In fairness though my speakers are pretty good they did cost me a significant price (i could have got a 5.1 for considerably less) but my god they are worth it! So in truth you can get some fantastic 2.1's. You just need to get the right ones

    Corsair makes speakers!? I never knew that.

    I use my home theater systems or crappy earbuds lol. I sold my Logitech speakers like 3 years ago.
