    on my laptop you have to go into the hdmi part and theres a sound option and it's normally set to pc speakers so i change it to headphone socket and then run a wire from headphone socket to tv and then the sound comes from the tv, :thumbsup:

    most new half decent laptops have hdmi, mines 18 months old and has a hd drive and has hdmi, any of the £400 plus laptops have hdmi now, i think

    An HDMI cable carries audio itself, as well as video

    I think you will need to shift the display from the Laptop to you TV to get the sound via HDMI
    If you just want sound then probably get a different cable

    click control panel then harware and sound , click sound and change defualt to hdmi youl have to change it back when u want it through your computer
