On my Ideapad 530s-15ikb, when I connect to HDMI I get the video output but not the audio.
I've tried with different cables, different TVs (all of which worked fully and properly - Video and Audio outputs - with other laptops).
Also tried sollution posted here for the 14ikb (HDMI-audio-not-working-on-Lenovo-530S-14ikb) and installed all updates from lenovo support site, but nothing makes the Audio output work.
I need it for my work and my inconvenient and cumbersome workaround is connecting a bluetooth speaker, but it is just that - a workaround. I need the audio output through HDMI.
Local Lenovo support reps suggested I completely reset the computer and reinstall everything, which is very time-consuming and inconvenient -- I'd rather not resort to that.
I'd appreciate your advice!

I booted my laptop using a UBUNTU live CD and HDMI audio worked perfectly.
Issue is apparently NOT a hardware problem.
I re-updated all drivers and "Digital Audio (HDMI) - High Definition Audio Device" is listed among the audio output devices, but no sound is coming and the troubleshooter insists the device is not connected.
