I'm sure that there is somneone who knows the answer to my problem somewhere! I have a laptop CQ-81. It came with Vista. This was rfemoved by the shop from which I bought it and Wiondows 7 is installed.
Using my Satellite receiver's HDMI outp[ut to me TVs HDMI I have sound and video. When the laptop is plugged in I have no sound. One forum said switch off the TV with the laptop connected so that when the TV is sitched ON, it detects the laptop. That does NOT work.
I took my laptop to the shop. They tested it and said that it was Ok. I brought it home but it does NOT work. I took it back to the shop and they showed it working to me on their TV.
I have a 2nd TV with HDMI socket and the laptop does NOT work on that either.
The HDMI cable has been tested and works with the Sat Receiver.
If I go to "Sound Settings" there is no option to select HDMI. It is not listed to I cannot select HDMI and set it as default instead of using the internal speakers. As you can guess, I have done a bit of research and tried many suggestions on forums all to no avail
That is correct. I cannot set the SAMSUNG as the deefault.
Yesterday I bought a "Drivers HQ" programme to scan my PC to update drivers but it said 38 needed updating! It is not easy for me, an old age pensioner of 77 yrs. so I have asked a computer technician to visit me next Monday to help with the problem. The programme that I thought was from HP Compaq for my computer turned out to be from another company and I did not like it. Thank you for your help
Hi, Sundar. A computer technician visited me to-day instead of next week and re-inatalled the drivers for HDMI as you suggested .....it worked! I told him what you had suggested so he tried that immediately and you were right! Thank you.
It means that the shop from which we bought the laptop was WRONG; they told us twice that there was nothing wrong with it!
I made a nice chicken Madras curry to-day. Pity that I could not join us!
