Give this a try -
To configure HDMI audio, first connect an audio or video device, such as a high-definition TV, to the
HDMI port on your computer. Then configure the default audio playback device as follows:
1. Right-click the Speakers icon in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar, and then click
Playback devices.
2. On the Playback tab, click either Digital Output or Digital Output Device (HDMI).
3. Click Set Default, and then click OK.
To return audio to the computer speakers, follow these steps:
1. Right-click the Speakers icon in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar, and then click
Playback devices.
2. On the Playback tab, click Speakers.
3. Click Set Default, and then click OK.
