HDMI No Sound, using HP G70-120EM Notebook PC connected to TV

hi,
my computer is the HP G70-120EM Notebook PC running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and i have all the up to date drivers from the HP website, including the one for video and sound, Nvidia GeForce 9200M GE file sp45167.exe which seams to cover hdmi sound as well as graphics.
my problem is that when i connect it to either of my two Philips LCD TV's via HDMI cable i get no sound, only the display. the computer came with Vista 32 bit and i had no problems except when i tried to upgrade to a newer driver, then i got exactly the same problem.
Please can someone help.
Thanks.

Hi,

Uninstall first Your current Nvidia drivers for graphic card. Check below guide how to do it (this is not standard uninstallation process):

How to remove nVidia graphic drivers from Windows system.

 

Download and install driver which You had for Vista:

NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GE Graphics Driver here

 

When there will be some kind of problems with installation then try to run it in Vista compatibility mode.

It's a little strange information.

Have Your tried all three options in Vista compatibility mode?

There is Vista, Vista (SP1) and Vista (SP2).

Hi again,

You may try to install Nvidia drivers from here.

If this will not work too then we will try to fix this issue with modded drivers.

 

Note:

Please remember to uninstall old driver first before You will go on with new one.

hi, finally all is well, should have thought of it myself, so obvious really. thanks very much. i downloaded the driver from nvidia uk web site, file: "197.16_notebook_winvista_win7_32bit_international_whql"  Now it seems to work better then ever, though i have not tried playing blueray disks yet, i don't foresee any issues though. thanks again.
