hdmi audio does not work with laptop

When connecting my Pavilion dm4 to a TV set using the HDMI cord the audio does not work.  Should the audio come through that cable.

Hi,

 

Open windows Control Panel, open Device Manager and open up Display Devices - make a note of the hardware listed here ie ATI, Nvidia or Intel.

 

Next, connect your notebook via HDMI to your Tv.  Right click the speaker icon in the Taskbar and select Playback Devices.  Left click once ( just to highlight ) the HDMI Output that starts with the same name as your display adapter and then click the Set Default button - see if you now have audio.
