I have a Dell Inspiron N7110 Laptop, was having no problem using an HDMI cable to send what was on my laptop display to my TV. Video and Sound were working fine. However, I am experiencing some issue with it, now. The TV is only receiving the video signal from the laptop. There is no sound. The sound comes out of my laptop but not from the TV. Haven't made any changes to my TV or laptop recently.

What could be the the possible reason of this issue? Appreciate all the help!

You need to check that the audio processor on the Video card is enabled. To get sound from the HDMI port you need this option.

Right-click the volume control icon on the bottom taskbar and click on Playback Devices to open the pop-up window for sound options. In the Playback tab, select Digital Output Device or HDMI as the default device, click Set Default and click OK to save the changes. This method works with a straight HDMI-to-HDMI connection.

Thank you!!! :)
