Solved!

No sound after 2nd monitor hookup

HP Recommended
Pavilion 23 All-in One Touchscreen
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I recently hooked a 2nd monitor to my Pavilion 23 All-in-One using an HDMI cable.  I have no problem with extending the display which is what I wanted to do.  The problem is that now there is no sound.  If I disconnect, the sound returns.  Do I need additional cable for audio?  I thought HDMI would handle both.  The 2nd monitor is HP E230t.  It is also a touchscreen monitor.

Hi,

I do not believe the monitor has speakers, so you would need to let the sound come from the AIO and not from the attached monitor. When you insert the hdmi cable the sound switches off because usually the sound travels through the HDMI cable to the TV/monitor attached.

What you can do is right-click on the small speaker icon in lower right of desktop and click on "Open sound settings". In the choose your output setting, choose speakers and not HDMI.

 

Hope it helps,

David
