Okay, so this has happened about a few days ago. I used to be able to connect my laptop to my tv through hdmi and watch and listen to content through the tv. But for some reason, the sound only chooses to play through my computer, even though it is connected to the television. I can get my tv to display everything that my computer does; it just does not play any of the sounds from it. I tried going into control panel and sounds to try to enable sound for devices outside of my computer, but it does not recognize my tv as a connected device. What is wrong? Is it the drivers for Windows 7 or something else. It worked just fine last week, but it stopped feeding sound to my computer a few days ago. Please let me know how I can resolve this issue. Thank you.
Operating system: Windows Home premium
Laptop: HP Pavilion dv7-4087cl
