How to connect my laptop sound to my tv?

Asked by curiosity (20points) October 12th, 2014

I am using an HDMI cord and have my laptop connected, but there is no sound. I went to my sound settings and it says that the sound is not connected. My tv is an insignia. It works when I have my PS3 connected to it but has been giving me problems. I tried turning off the tv and turning it back on. unplugging it, resetting my laptop, redo the cord, by unplugging the HDMI cord and such. I had no such luck. Please help!

Your laptop may not be pushing audio through the HDMI port. You can usually go into control panel and enable the default sound settings as “HDMI”

I looked at that already and it wont allow me to set it as default.

Try loading the official audio driver here

Then check both the mixer in the systray and in control panel.
