no sound with HDMI connection

I have a hpe-140f and  there is no sound when connect to a HD monitor using HDMI cable. 


Device manager shows two audio devices both working .  Sound playback windows shows only a speaker and Digital audio device but no HDMI High Definition Audio.


The speaker works if I use a cable to connect to the audio jack of the monitor.


Anyone have any clue?

Re: no sound with HDMI connection

Go to and get the latest audio driver.  Then go to NVIDIA and get the latest video driver.


Go to the Control Panel --> Sound and be sure that under the Playback TAB that HDMI has the green check mark.

Go to the Control Panel --> Realtek HD Audio Manager and be sure that the HDMI output is set as the default device.


In the Control Panel --> Sound, click on the Playback Tab and then right mouse click on that window and select show disconnected and disabled sevices.  HDMI should not be either of these choices.


What monitor are you using?
