Re: Dell XPS 15z no audio output through HDMI

I'm still having this issue. xps 15 was having no problem playing audio through hdmi about two weeks ago and all of a sudden it stopped. I've tried setting the hdmi as the default sound but it wont allow me to do so. When the hdmi connects it shows video but the audio only plays on the laptop.

Re: Dell XPS 15z no audio output through HDMI

All of my tips are now collected in the HDMI Audio FAQ.

HDMI audio is a function of the graphics driver. Your XPS 15 (there are 3 different models with that name) probably has dual graphics, for example an integrated Intel as part of the processor, and a discrete nVidia. I would try updating the drivers for each (right click on the driver in Device Manager and "update") then make the connections as described in the FAQ, then look in the Sound properties Playback tab for HDMI audio (right click and make sure that show disconnected and disabled devices are checked).

Re: Dell XPS 15z no audio output through HDMI

Great!  You got what I accidentally discovered a couple days ago (after a year of struggles.)

Running Inspiron 660 under Windows 7, full updates.

My problem is that the tv is in the living room.  I really need sound out of both channels simultaneously, since I am using "clone display" in order to operate from either my office or my easy chair!  Any ideas on how to turn on both sound channels??

Then go to "sound"  in control panel and make HDMI the "Default Device".

It wont set. Ive tried updating and even setting defaults but the only way it plays is through the laptop itself. Ive even tried the headphones jack but only one side plays and also tried a USB headset to see if that worked and that wont even play sound through that. Its having the same issue as the HDMI plug in.

With all of the other audio issues you are having maybe you should start a new thread on the Laptop Audio board to have some discussion about them.

Go to your control panel and open Dell Audio (not your regular Sound icon)

Click the advanced tab.

Disable Power Save.

Hello Suresh. This thread is about HDMI audio on the XPS 15z model. If your question is about microphone or a different model, please start a new thread.

Include the full model name of your laptop.

Include the name of the operating system it has.

If English is not your native language, I suggest that you write your question in your native tongue and we can use Google Translate to translate it into English.
