Windows 7 no sound coming out

  Sandyums 14:57 13 Dec 13

Hi, Sound has suddenly stopped, have tried all the basic things, when I go into mixer, it is showing the sound waves, but no sound. Driver up to date. The AMD HDMI output, "saying not plugged in " it is plugged in. and there is a red icon with an arrow facing down. Speakers have a green tick against it.

Any ideas will be welcome.

Many Thanks

What device does the sound come from usually, Separate speakers or via a HDMI cable attached to the TV or similar. This problem is usually that the sound is being directed to the wrong device.

Hi The sound comes from built in speakers in the monitor, which are the only ones.

How is the monitor connected to the computer. Is it by HDMI cable . Is there a separate cable for the sound signal between the computer and the monitor. If iot is by HDMI cable then the sound is included in the cable and you need to have the output device as the HDMI device. If a separate cable then it should be "Speakers".
