Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Hello - From what you've written I would assume that you have connected your notebook to your new monitor with an HDMI cable. You have the right idea. The problem is, yes HDMI does carry both video and audio, but your new monitor doesn't have any way to output the sound...no speakers.
When your laptop connected to the external monitor it recognized the HDMI and assumed the device was sound capable. You need to go to Start > Control Panel > Sound and setup the sound to go through your notebooks speakers like it normally does and not try to send sound to the monitor.
After the change you'll view the video on your new monitor and the sound will be output by your laptop speakers like always.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and enjoy your new LED display.
