Ok, I have a similar issue;


Recently did a clean install of windows vista home premium on my Gateway P-6831FX

I hooked up my hdmi cable to my TV and there is video but no audio.

No HDMI audio option appears under playback devices, I checked for hidden devices and still no HDMI option.

I can not find the right driver download from Gateway or anywhere else?


Does anyone know where I can find a driver for the hdmi audio?

Hello, and welcome to Bleeping Computer


HDMI is part of your Video driver. Did you install the Geforce video driver after the clean install?


Here is the geforce video driver from Gateway for Vista 32bit or 64bit.


You did not say if the OS is 64bit or 32 bit. . If the above does not work, uninstall the Gateway video driver and install the latest Nvidia driver for the 8800M GTS


Nvidia Driver for the 8800M GTS Vista 64bit


Nvidia Driver for the 8800M GTS Vista 32bit

For my Radeon HD 7xxx the audio doesn't work correctly factory, I have to do a registry tweak every time I reinstall windows.
Perhaps your nvidia card has the same flaw? Worth it to check out, perhaps?

As well, on my mobo I have the option for s/pdif output for sound.. This takes precident over the gfx card's hdmi, in some cases..
If yours has this, there should be an option in the BIOS to select hdmi over s/pdif.
