Thinkpad Yoga14 - No Audio with HDMI

2016-07-05, 14:43 PM

I am having issues with the audio when my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14 is plugged to HDMI. While the laptop is plugged into HDMI, the playback device in "Sounds" says "Not Plugged In" but the video is appearing when the HDMI is plugged in.  

I have been searching the web for a solution but have yet to find anything. 

I have tried to download some drivers but none of the drivers have worked. 


Any suggestions?

I have a Thinkpad Yoga 14 (20DM) and the HDMI audio works fine.

For example when I plug an Epson HDMI projector ( that has an speaker), it is recognized like an "Intel Display Audio"




Maybe I can recommend you to update the:

- "Intel Display Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad Yoga 14 (Type 20DM, 20DN)"


I also like to update the drivers of my Thinkpad Yoga from time to time... here it goes my general tips.


1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches

2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.

3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"

4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers (use the full model number of your Thinkpad).


I hope this helps.

My problem too! Video plays but NO AUDIO. Under "Sounds", says "not plugged in". Have you or anyone else solved the problem? I have tried this new cable on 2 different TVs, same result.
