    Sound appears to come from Laptop rather than TV when connected with HDMI

    I am using windows 7 laptop which was plugged to my HD TV via HDMI. It worked fine for few months when sound used to come from TV. Now it appears to come from my Laptop. What should i do to get it back to playing it from TV again?

    If HDMI is enabled,disable it and check whether it fix your issue or not.To do the same, follow the below given procedure:
    1. Right click on the "sound icon" of system tray.
    2. Then click on Sound>>Playback/Recording.
    3. After that,right click on "Select a playback/recording device below to modify its settings” Window and select "show disabled device”.
    4. Disable the device(if it is enabled). Choose any other device and set is as default device.
    5. To save changes,click on "Apply" and "Ok".

    hii...
    It seems that your Tv is disabled in sound and recordings..
    To enable it, right click the Sound icon from tray..Select "Playback devices"Under this, you can see the Audio manager of your laptop. right click there and click "show disabled devices"..
    You will find you TV model and some other devices also.Right click your TV and select "enable".
    And Done!!

    Assuming you have not tweaked the settings in your laptop regarding playback,
    and no other person access your laptop to tinker with the device,

    It is probably a case of damaged HDMI cable.
    Remove the cable from both the ends of the environment, the laptop and the tv.
    Manually cross check the condition to find out if anything is wrong with the cable or the connector.
    Reinsert the cable, attach in both ends.
    Play the programs/files, is it okay now ?
    Try with another HDMI cable and be sure of the situation and take necessary action.
