Ideapad Flex 5 14ARE05 - Issue with HDMI (No audio)

2021-06-22, 17:34 PM


I have an issue with my ideapad flex 5. I've connected it to my TV via HDMI cable but I can't hear any audio. I've tried to update to the latest drivers and also run the audio troubleshooter tool but didn't work. Can you help me?

Greetings @maicol07 


You may try to check for the hardware components properly first; check the cable if properly connected, check if output port works fine, and check if the monitor works properly with the audio set on preferred volume.


Try to set the HDMI as a default device to enable the audio. 


- Right click the sound icon on taskbar.
- Click playback devices.
- In the Playback tab, select Digital Output Device or HDMI option. Choose Set Defaults and ok. This will set HDMI sound as defaults.
- If Digital Output Device or HDMI option is not present in the Playback tab, right click on the blank space, choose Show disconnected devices and Show disabled devices. Try to set it at as a default device.


You may also update the audio drivers from the support site. On the support page, type in your machine serial number to load the correct drivers. Go to Drivers and Software tab, click on Manual Update > update your audio drivers and restart the machine once complete.


Test the audio.


Update us how it goes.
