Hello,
Have a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop, was having no problem using a HDMI cable to send what was on my laptop display to my TV. Video and Sound were working fine. Now i just started getting the video signal but no sound to tv. The sound comes out of my laptop but not the tv. Haven't made any changes to my tv or laptop recently.....what could be the problem? Appreciate any help i can get....
thanks,
paresh

I just joined to answer the above question, as I saw that people were still struggling with this problem. It was while reading something in the original thread that gave me the insight to dig a little deeper.

My issue was that I connect my laptop to my TV using a USB to HDMI box. All of today I have been playing with software trying to get my integrated webcam to work on my Dell Inspiron 1545, only to find that it was not working owing to a loose cable. But this also became the cause of my sound problem.

I noticed that the drivers for the sound output for my speaker icon for my tv were not correct, mine had a creative .inf as the main driver which could not be right, and seemed to coincide with software that I had installed earlier in the day. I had uninstalled and reinstalled the Viewspan software but this had not worked. So I went to device manager, uninstalled the device from there, and then my system re-installed the correct driver and my sound was back!

Done

Hope that helps someone!
