good connection between the laptop and the tv.

When you buy cables in a store, look at them first. If they are in a clear plastic package, look at the bends of the cable. If the cable looks like the bends may have been forced to bend sharply, the wires inside the cable could be damaged. Don't buy that one.

Look for cables with bends that don't look they are forced into a small package.

Silly question time... does the sound on the tv work otherwise ?

When you just watch tv programs ? Play a dvd or video tape using the apppropriate player cabled to the tv ?

Check the hdmi input connector, not the cable, on the tv, are any of the pins loose ?

Start/control panel/sound-set hdmi as default device.
Tip a)The hdmi sound is on the minimum level by default,so remember to select hdmi properties/levels,and increase the volume to maximum.
Tip b)Increase also the tv volume cause the sound from hdmi usually is a bit weak.
Try also to set your tv as the primary screen before do all the above.

yes my tv does work with normal cable n dvd. n panais I tried all that but nothing works. maybe their is something i can download or upgrade or even go deep in my files to find the problem.

ok if you want to do this the cheap arse way get a 3.5mm jack (headphone) to mono/stereo and plug it into your TV you will have sound, TV sound wont be Hi def anyway, it will only be stereo, so this is the same quality... kinda
