HP Spectre G4X24PA Audio :: No HDMI Sound To Click
Oct 17, 2014
HP spectre G4X24PA#ABG, bought a few days ago, links in via HDMI cable to Sony HD TV - picture fine but no sound.. tried Control Panel, Sound etc but no HDMI sound to click and make say default?? IDT High Definition Audio Codec listed but no connect to HDMI - suspect drivers not up-to-date?? But HP assistant says all is up to date?? Have looked on web - many answers for Win XP/Vista etc but I am running WIN 8.1- can always connect external speakers or use Y-connector but I think this single HDMI cable SHOULD work?
When I connect my laptop to my tv the sound does no come out the tv, but remains coming out the pc speakers. it is not a cable issue as my other hp laptop works fine. i can't find a setting to change it to hdmi audio output.
When I first used the laptop sound would sometimes come through the HDMI to the TV. Now it never does. When I look at playback devices there is no HDMI playback, but only "Speaker/HP". I have gone into the DTS audio panel, which also only lists one playback device. I have also right clicked in playback devices to show all disabled or disconnected devices and there aren't any others.
Laptop speakers or speakers plugged into the jack work fine. The video on the HDMI connection also works fine.
So far I have upgraded the BIOS to the latest version and also uninstalled the realtek audio driver and installed the latest driver from HP's website.
None of this has caused sound to work through the HDMI or even an HDMI playback device to appear.
I recently noticed my Pavilion dv7 entertainment notebook won't play sound through the tv anymore. The picture is on the tv but sound is running through the laptop speakers? I never had a problem with this until now. When i open up the sound options, the ATI HDMI output says it's not connected and so it wont let me select it, but it is connected?

My laptop has no sound at all - built in speakers, earbuds, not even when connected to my TV using the HDMI port (which is a separate driver).
2 weeks ago all sound was working. I was watching (and listening) youtube videos using my earbuds. I stopped a video and left my laptop unused until the next day. There were no installs or updates applied that I am aware of. The next day I closed Youtube and played words with friends and there was no sound. I restarted the laptop and still no sound.
I have read and worked through many processes and fixes found on this and other forums but have been unable to get sound working. I also attempted to restore my laptop back to prior to this issie but my restore points fail (corrupted).
Drivers: Both drivers are present and state they are working properly - they are current versions ATI high definition Audio Device Date 5/6/2010 Ver 18.104.22.16806 IDT High Definition Audio Codec Date 6/17/2010 Ver 6.10.6289.0
I have uninstalled (checked delete the driver software for this device) and reinstalled multiple times. I have uninstalled, shutdown, removed power and battery, held power button for 30 seconds, then repowered and let the drivers reinstall (they automatically installed upon boot I was not able to run the sp50642.exe that I downloaded).
I also used the HP Recovery tool and reinstalled the drivers to factory default
I have run Microsofts problem finder and it reports all is working. I have verified there are no settings muted or disabled. When I test the speakers from"Sound and Headphones" Properties, I get "Failed to play test tone".
FYI - I have not done an update to the BIOS but I checked and mine is the updated version F.29 but the date is 14 days older then the downloadable SP55299 version.
When the laptop is on and I pick it up to move it I would often hear a loud CLICK sound coming from the HD. It had me freaked out that something was loose or that the heads were scratching the platters.
I just came across an article explaining what this noise has been. It is the sound of the read/write heads parking because of the "Sudden Motion Sensor" built into the laptop. It senses the rapid movement when I pick up the laptop and then it parks the heads to prevent scratching the platters... that is the click sound of the heads parking.
The sensor is a tri-axis accelerometer that detects sudden changes in "position and accelerated movement".
Anyways, I tested this to see if it was the "sudden motion sensor" parking the heads: - first I confirmed that the sound would still occur when picking up the laptop and tilting it quickly while still on - then I checked the sensor's settings to see if it was really on by running a command I found in the linked article. - then I turned off the sensor (that command is also in the article). - then I tested by picking up the laptop again and tilting it quickly...
no more CLICK
I enabled the sensor again because it is better to have it enabled than to risk scratching a platter if I drop the laptop. I'm just happy to have found the source of the CLICK and to know it wasn't a faulty HDD.
I have changed a setting on this computer and now my sound does not work properly. I dont know what got changed but the windows sound like the bell and the chime take about 10 seconds to play. i can not use windows media player is said the drived is out of date but I checked and the update said I have the most current software. I did try the windows trouble shooter but it couldnot find a problem. I do have beats audio on a dv7-6b63us.
Okay, well the day before yesterday I was trying to watch Youtube but when I clicked on a video it had no sound. I thought it was Youtube, so I exited the site and thought I'd wait a little bit. So then I went to Spotify to listen to some music. I kept clicking and clicking and nothing was happening. Then I noticed a blue notice at the top that said something about my soundcard not working properly.
I then checked everything on my computer to see if it had sound. Windows Media Player...no, videos on Facebook...nope, nothing was working. At first I thought it was my daughter. I let her watch Youtube when she lays down for a nap. I came in the other day and she was hitting all kinds of buttons on my computer. I stopped her though and everything seemed fine. I also remember my computer updating that day. Could it be that something went wrong with the update? I don't know if that's possible or not.
And also, what is a soundcard. Do I have to buy it or do I download it???
I went to Yahoo answers and someone said to uninstall the drivers. I did that and then reinstalled them and it worked. The rest of that day I had sound on everything except for Facebook. Yesterday night it happened again and the sound has not returned since but my computer sounds are still working. When I logged on the computer made the log in sound it usually makes. I also tried to listen to a video with headphones and it still did not work. Again, I uninstalled the drivers and then re installed them and got nothing.
The sound on my HP Pavilion G6-1a19wm is not working. Sound "does" work when using the audio jack with external speakers. I have tried uninstalling the driver, updating the driver, microsoft fix-it, and troublshooting steps. audio device shows in device manager and is supposedly working properly, mute is "not' enabled. visually all audio related things suggest that the audio is fine and troubleshooting finds no problems..
I am using HP 2000-2313TU Notebook PC laptop with windows 8 64 bit operating system. From the last few days i am facing some problems in audio..when i am opening my laptop the sound system is working well...but when i am not continuing any audio application( busy in some other work..) and after sometime say 20-30minutes when i am opening any audio or video file it is running without any sound..when i am restarting my computer again audio device works...if i am not using the audio files after opening my computer also this problem happens after sometimes when i play some audio files.
I have a Dell Studio 1537, and I reguarly use my TV with my laptop as an extra monitor, and when I plug the HDMI cable in, the audio switches over to the TV with no problems.
However, it seems that whenever I restart my laptop, (even if it was turned off after having taken the HDMI cable out) the audio is being sent through HDMI, and I have to go and change it to the speakers of the laptop.
Is there any way of basically setting the laptop to send audio through HDMI if it is plugged in, and the speakers if not?
I did a clean install of Windows 7 on my Z590 after upgrading the BIOS to R2170M3. Everything works perfectly but I just can't get any sound over HDMI on my TV. Totally ruins the Windows 7 experience...
I have the NVIDIA 187.35 drivers from Sony installed. When I install the previous NVIDIA drivers for Vista (174.49), I immediately get sound over HDMI. Apparently this is an NVIDIA problem.
I have sony vaio Z11VRN, windows 7 ultimate installed...with all the official sony drivers...
everything is working just great...until I wanted to connect my laptop to my new philips tv via HDMI..
(before I was doing that all the time with Toshiba TV with no issues at all!)... so no I have no sound.
To cut the long story short....it is not an issue with sound card (playback devices selected HDMI one...and the equalizer actually moves...), the TV has no issues since it works perfectly with dvd using the same cable.
I recently bought the Acer Aspire E1-432. It runs Windows 8.1. When I use HDMI to watch movies on my TV, the sound is not played by the TV but by the notebook. I looked on the internet for solutions for this problem and encountered two recurring possibilities.
1) Go to sound manager, show disabled devices and select the HDMI as main audio output.
When I go to sound manager and try the above solution, I can not select anything but the default audio. It does not matter if I plugged in the HDMI cable or not nor does it work to select the HDMI source on the TV. The option does not appear in sound manager.
2) Update the HD realtek audio driver.
I tried removing the driver and letting the notebook update the driver itself. Again it did not work. Secondly, I downloaded the newest version of the HD Realtek Audio Driver I could find (22.214.171.12427) and installed over the old version. Again, this did not work.
Any solution, applicable on this type of laptop, that might do the job?
By the way, chromecast works fine, using the same HDMI port. The cable works as well, for a different laptop of mine is able to produce audio with the exact same cable and same HDMI port.
I got my xps 1530 on monday and I used vista media center last night to record some HD shows. Later on I connected my 1530 to my HD tv and set the audio out to hdmi instead of the speakers. When I played back the show, there was no audio on my tv, but when I started up media center, the start up sounds and the sounds when you navigate through media center played back through my tv speakers. Does anyone know how to get it so the shows sound will play back through my tv speakers?
Iv just started using my laptop to output HDMI and iv got a problem with the audio. Iv set the laptop to output the audio and it does work, but whenever a program ends and i open up another one it runs silently, despite me having changed nothing except the program.
In order to get the audio back i have to randomly unplug the HDMi cable, mute it, pause it, unmute it unpause etc and eventually one of these fixes the audio issue
Can anyone shed any light on what could be causing the audio to work sometimes and not work others?
