hp Laptop hdmi to TV= no sound

by saintly53 / November 9, 2009 12:11 PM PST

Hi, I have a HP pavilion dv6 Laptop. I am trying to connect to my LG lcd TV via ATI HDMI output but I get no audio, only video! I have been into the sound settings and set HDMI as the default sound and it says its working properly, however when i do a sound test it says "error! unable to play test tone"! I know it is not the Cable or the TV as i use them both for my PS3!
Can anyone help me, spend hours last night trying to figure it out and surfing the web with no success also Hp support is ****!!!

no sound on TV (UN32D4000ND) connected to laptop (dv6t-2000)
by jass_1121 / April 10, 2011 1:19 AM PDT

My tv is UN32D4000ND and my laptop is dv6t-2000 connected via HDMI. The OS is Windows 7. I already went to Control Panel-Sound-On tab Playback I set the default on SPDIF (Digital Out via HP Dock) but still I can't hear anything from the TV. Appreciate all the help.

Since SPDIF is not on the HDMI, should be no sound.
