My TV only has Image, no sound. Ive tried the headphone jack and the red/white audio out. Nothing. But image works.

 

I was wondering if there is a way, in windows 7, to bypass the audio and have my laptop audio go through my side speakers? This way I dont deal with whatever issue the TV has with its sound.

 

Anyone know how I can connect the computer via HDMI (best picture) and disable sound. I will use the headphone jack from the laptop and connect it to my side speakers (its what I use now on my laptop).

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, in your sound playback options you can change the device being used for sound.  If you check you may be able to get the sound to go through HDMI.

Do as BC Advisor suggested. In the sounds settings you'll be able to set playback sound to play out of the laptop not the HDMI screen and from there you set it to laptop and try plugging in the headphones see if it'll work then as it most likely should.

Some units don't have the option to send the audio through the HDMI so headphones or powered external speakers on the LT would be needed.
