Hello,
Well I play online using my TV and a head set for sound. But, during the day I have to plug in basic PC speakers so my kids can hear the movies they watch. I Use a HDMI from my video card on my PC to my TV, video is great but no sound I tried searching for HDMI on my computer but I cant find it anywhere, including my Sound/playback menu. Please help.

Hi Sparks10107,

Please perform the below mentioned steps and check if this fixes the issue:

1. Right click the Volume icon in the bottom right side of the screen.
2. Select "Playback devices".
3. Check if you can see "HD audio" or similar options listed here.
4. If it is listed please make "HD audio" as the default audio device.
5. If it is not listed here, right click any empty space and check the option "Show disabled devices".
6. If the "HD Audio" is still not listed try updating the Video Card Drivers and then check again.

Do reply with results.
