Hello and welcome,
If you mean HDMI, I realized I hadn't ever checked if the sound works. Just plugged it into my Samsung TV. Got a movie playing now and sound works fine.
This is the adapter I'm using. There are others but this one is working for me.

I am NOT getting Audio with Video with this Adaptor. Instruction for adaptor has a NOTE: This adater will Support Audio only if your source device allows audio output through the USB Type-C interface
Computer must support DisplayPort Altrnate Mode output.
I am a bit baffled. Sales clerk sold this adapter as the correct adapter for both Audio and Vidio for my Lanovo 900.
Do I have to go into my Graphics Card settings or Control panel and make correct adjustment. OR How do I find out if MY Computer support DisplayPort Altrnate Mode output.

This is the adapter that I use for my Yoga 900:
It's a plug and go, and no other adustment is neccessary.
Make sure that you employ a "High Speed HDMI 1.3 category 2" cable.
"Many HDMI cables under 5 meters of length that were made before the HDMI 1.3 specification can work as Category 2 cables, but only Category 2-tested cables are guaranteed to work for Category 2 purposes."

I have the same adapter and while I get video, I'm not getting audio, even though the sound control panel is showing audio activity to the external receiver. The HDMI cable is the correct type as well, and it works with two other laptops' HDMI ports for both video and audio. Strange.
