New Build but got sound problems.

  sprite1275 10:22 25 Jul 2013

Hi, Just finished building a new pc, downloaded drivers and updated win7 64bit. Only problem now is the sound will not stay on. I have a saphire HD7950 GPU connected to the TV via HDMI, Although picture is fine the sound is intermittent. If there is sound it goes on and off about every second, When i have no sound playing i can hear a double click noise every second.

Anyone have any ideas?

First thing to try would be another HDMI cable.

Tried and still the same

Go into control panel>sounds>playback tab and check that the correct output/speakers are selected.

Have you got a separate set of speakers you could connect to your PC and see if the problem is still there?

Sound output is set to TV. Ive tried plugging headphones into the front of the computer and sound plays through that fine.

Is your TV set up to allow the HDMI cable to be active?

Do you have the option in control panel>sounds>playback tab to change the output to HDMI if try that?
