Laptop HDMI fuctionality

My Laptop has an HDMI connection built in and I can hook it up to my HDTV, but no sound comes with the video. Is this the way it is supposed to work or is there some setting I don't know about to make the sound come through? I have Vista Home Preimum 32-bit.

Normally the sound should come out also.Have you tested that CD to make sure that it has sound??? Try some other program to play the CD like DVDplayer or some other player program to see because they have more option to set for sound output.
takecare.

You are trying to connect laptop to a tv, right? Does the TV have any compatible inputs? VGA, DVI, HDMI

Your laptop has HDMI output and is Intel Wireless Display Capablewhich means you can get an adapter that supports Intel Wireless Display and wirelessly project multimedia to your HDTV with great image clarity and sound.
If your TV has HDMI input, buy a cable and hook them together. Otherwise you can buy the adapter and hook them up wirelessly.

HDMI should transmit both Video and Audio. It's the best quality of all of the methods. Just make sure that you have your sound set to HD sound. You can do that by right-clicking your speaker icon at the bottom (by the time), and choosing Volume Control Options and make sure that Digital Audio (HDMI) is selected.

This would work for Windows 7 or Vista Operating Systems. XP is similar, but you will have to play around with.

If hdmi cable sends audio and video info from my laptop to my tv why can't I hear anything? I have video but no audio. the Audio all say hdmi/high def audio and are working properly


Have you "muted" the sound on your computer?

Have you "muted" any of the outputs (MIDI, speaker) on your computer?

Have you "muted" the sound on the TV's built-in speakers?

Have you "muted" the sound on any external speakers that are connected to your TV?
Does your TV have _more_ than one HDMI port? Have you tried them all?

Got a friend with a TV with a HDMI port?
If so, connect your laptop via THEIR HDMI-cable to their TV.
Also, connedct your laptop via YOUR HDMI-cable to their TV.

How do i connect my acer aspire 5810T to my tv, thanks


I am assuming that you want to display your laptop on your TV. Since you did not post what TV you have, I am listing multiple ways to connect your laptop to your TV. Just pick the right type connection that works for both your laptop and TV, connect OUT of laptop to an INPUT on your TV. Set your TV to that input (mode) and if you see nothing on the TV, look at your laptop keyboard at the F keys (function keys) for the one with a double display image on it, pree the function button and the F key to set the laptop to external display.
1. S-Video – This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
If by chance you are attempting to hook up the TV to the laptop to capture video from the TV, you need to hook up your wire to the OUTPUT of the TV and you will need a capture card or hardware and software to do this. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote appropriately and leave a comment.

What do I need to hook it up to an hdtv...what type of cables..DVI-D to HDMI?


Your laptop will need a HDMI output or a DVI output for HD video. If your laptop only has a VGA out the your tv will need a VGA or DVI input. You could use a vga to dvi adapter if your tv does not have a vga connector. They do have a DVI to HDMI adapter but there are a couple of problems with that. One you will not get the sound and the TV will only obtain sound from HDMI cable when connected that way and Two the TV will have problems processing the signal from the computer due to the HDMI will only process the HD signals at certain formats and the computer video can send out many different signals. I tried and I could not get my tv to process the signal so I got a video card that has a HDMI out and my blu-ray player works great.

NO SOUND WHEN USING HDMI FROM PC TO HDTV (RUNNING VISTA)


When using an HDMI to DVI cable their is no audio that comes through that cable. Even if you use HDMI to HDMI most computers only have video output from HDMI. You will have to use a seperate audio cable for you to be able to get the sound to work. Depending on the output you have on your laptop you may have to resort to hooking up a pair of speakers to the headphone jack.

Hope this helps.

How to hook up a hp pavilion laptop to a hdtv


if it worked fine at some point then it should work fine now... i use hdmi to hdmi from my laptop to tv all the time dvi would only cause quality loss.

the first thing i would try would be to change your resolution on your laptop to a couple different settings. a lot of times, if its not set to one thats compatible with your tv, you won't see anything.

if that doesn't work, go to personalization and open the tab that says "connect an external display" and toy around with it. but yeah it doesn't sound like you have any hardware problems there.

hope this helps
