SOURCE: no sound on TV with hdmi cord

HI Mike,

Sometimes HDMI ports have their sound channel shared with the VGA/RCA port and they need to be switched around in the TV settings.

I dont know what is brand is your TV set so you will have to check yourself in the sound settings and also check for PC settings, see if you can change that around.

You can also just try another HDMI port on your TV that have the sound dedicated to it.

High DPC Latency


High DPC Latency WHAT OS???????????????????
what Zd8000 is this, full model name on the service tag.
pC come in submodels, mine has 6 processor choices, ram size and video GPU chips,. offered on one submodel.
we cant guess what PC you have, nor its upgrades
nor what OS you are running. NOW, nor what it came with new.

id bet it's infected , run ESET, off line scanner yet, its FREE
If XP it for sure is INFECTED, as ALL are now. XP is dead now.
no support for 3 long years, and is a virus magnet.
and very very powerful.
and run full Malwarebytes, next.
if it ran before, and not now, it is infected.
or overheating.
or got tons of startup progs, loaded ,
what is the service tag data.
are you running the original HP software?
that means not upgraded to w10.
nor using MS disks to install OS , only HP works right or f11 key
reinstalls.
lag. (tests that help prove what it might be)
  1. lags on playing C: test.wav file>
  2. lags playing C: test.mp3/?
  3. lags if you click test windows sounds, in CP + sound
  4. LAGS OFF DVD MOVIE?
  5. LAGS ONLY ON OLINE
  6. LAGS ON ms solitaire?
  7. lags on DVD loaded local games?
  8. lags only on steam games....
  9. lags only on live web games
  10. my guess is it lags from even just sounds. (even music online or off line, not just Video lag, as all on line videos can do.
  11. even my netflix lags on my TV with 200mbs/ fiber. (and has nothing to do with my systems, its the internet or netflix caused.

The DPC spikes, my guess are software overload.
too many things running or
how many cores is your processor have?
i looked up on pc like yours,
it had and old Pentium 4.
ATI Mobility Radeon X600 with 256MB dedicated
are you on wifi or fast broad band, with ethernet direct connect./.
but this pc has no gigalan jack, oops, that be bad.
running XP are you>?

first try this on this old dog pc

in the start box. type, msconfig.
then see startup tab
then shut them all off for a test.
see if runs ok now.
why not show one example in detail that fails
show slow video link online. a youtube.
or better , name a game that runs slow or lags
nAME JUST ONE Thing,
tell where it resides.
1: HDD , folder. local.
2: CD/ or DVD drive.
3: online, games.

we cant guess what you do exactly so please say so.

what Id do with this pC
is give it to GOODWILL (tm) then walk over to the newer Laptops
and get one with w7 or newer
and WIN !

How to download videos


1Turn on your computer and make sure you are connected to the Internet. High-speed Internet connections are favorable for downloading movies, which are often large files that can take a long time to download. Open a browser window--you can use Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome or any other browser of your choice.

2.Navigate to web service, which will allow you to download movies that can be watched on your laptop. You can go to Apple.com to download iTunes, which will allow you to register for an account and download movies at a particular price. You can also use Netflix.com to download or stream movies to your laptop.

3.Choose the movie that you would like to watch and, in iTunes or Netflix.com, purchase the film. Be aware that these online services do not have every movie that has ever been made, and most likely will not have obscure titles. Once you have chosen the movie that you wish to download, complete the payment process to purchase the film. Movies can be downloaded for free on various websites, however, this is illegal and can result in expensive legal suits.

4.Wait for your movie to download. Download times will vary depending on the speed of your Internet connection. Once the download has completed, you can open the movie file and watch it on your laptop.

Problem with Lag between picture and sound


There should be a setting in the Home theater's menu (probably under Audio or Audio Setup) to increase or decrease the delay. Set this to the least possible delay, or if possible, no delay at all. This, from what I read is a very good unit so it should have this setting in the 'Menu', if you can't find it, the manufacturer should be able to help. Good Luck!
