ThinkVision L2461x - No audio - is HDMI connection forcing the audio jack input off?

I have an XP machine with multiple DVI video cards (n analogue blue d connector though). I have used an HDMI adaptor to DVi so I can connect the ThinkVision L2461x to my PC  via the HDMI cable. Video works great, touch is good to (single only). Even the camera is OK. But no audio.

 

The mute is off, the volume at max, but not a squeak. I wondered if the digital HDMI input was shutting off the audio from the 3.5mm jack. If so, can I over ride this?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Hi gadgetboy,

DVI does not support audio function. Even you have got converter but DVI does not have audio channel.
