    HDMI Sound output issues


    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?

    There might be an option in your BIOS for HDMI audio output. I have these options: Auto, Enable, Disable.

    You have to access your BIOS during boot. Directions should be in the user's guide for your laptop or PC (model not provided).

    What kind of Laptop and does is use any kind of Intel chipset for Video? I had a Gateway that had the same problem, I had to download a Vista driver for it and force it in manually.

    Hey its an Acer laptop E1-571.

    No, the problem still seems to be the same. There is no driver for it and I can't seem to find one.

    Any help would be great.
