Sound not working

2018-06-25, 22:52 PM

I recently upgraded a monitor I connect to my X1 Yoge 2nd Gen.  The sound does not work when the monitor is attached. I attached via my HDMI port on the laptop.  My old monitor was had a VGA connection but I had a VGA/HDMI converter. I used that old monitor for many months without any issue.  With this monitor, sound doesn't work.

 

I updated drivers for sound card and more monitor. I tried several things i found on the web but I can not resolvoe it.  The new monitor I got is a Dell U2715H monitor.

That monitor has some kind of HDMI to audio pass-through, so Windows is likely trying to use it as the audio out device. (That's my WAG...)

 

When you go to sound  in control panel or sound settings via rt click on the speaker in the tool bar, what is showing as the playback device?

It has the laptop speaker selected.  The list includes the monitor HDMI but it's not selected.
