Hello all.

So, I have a question about my HDMI Lenovo monitor that I recently got

c976dffeb732fe24154f6ae0d4c192ab.png

As you can see in that picture, my computer lists it as an audio device (twice, for some reason) - it even shows up in my Device Manager under Audio.

However, no audio comes out of it.

Same thing when I plug it into an other HDMI port, no audio.
Is the monitor even supposed to have build in audio, or in my computer just confused by the monitor?

I can't find any indication that your monitor should have audio - but can't find actual manufacturer's specs for it to be sure.

 

HDMI can carry audio as well as video signals, so I suspect the video driver will also provide an audio entry for any equipment connected to the HDMI output - even if it does not actually have any audio functionality.

 

Your monitor is listed twice because you have it set as both default playback audio device & default communications audio device - if you set both these defaults to "Speakers" I would expect you to be left with only one entry for the monitor.

I looked at the specs and there is no reference to speakers, only HDMI, which is strange.

Looks like a monitor. Sorry no sound. May be best if you got some surround system? :thumbup2:

Edit: We always get TVs as they are multipurpose and employ speakers.
