On my Yoga 14 the sound cuts out when I plug in a monitor via the HDMI port. Is this correct and is there a work around?

Welcome to the Lenovo forum
First thing i want to check is if this is the sound coming from the monitor that is not working? And also is this device a Thinkpad yoga 14?
Please keep us updated on how you are getting on with this.

If you are using Windows 10, try left clicking on the volume icon of the task bar. Above the volume control is text that you can click to choose the playback device. It would be interesting to see whether your monitor spearkers are listed here, and whether they are selected.
In the worst case scenario (if your monitior speakers are missing or broken), then this gives you the option to output sound to through your laptop speakers even when your monitor is connected.

Thanks, but I found my problem and fixed it. HDMI was expecting the speakers to be in the monitor, i.e. I plugged in a TV and it worked fine. I went into Windows 10 and changed the sound to come from the Yoga 14 and not the monitor and everything works fine now.
