Problems Using HDMI Cord on Laptop

  Phoenix40 21:30 29 Dec 2013

I reakise for sometime i cant hear anything using a HDMI cord on my Toshiba 855 laptop to be able to watch HD films from my monitor. I can only hear audio when using a VGA cable. Is there a way round this? Surely HDMI cables can be used on laptops. Hope to hear some ideas thanks.

You need the correct HDMI cable to transmit Sound with it or you will need to connect a sound cable from earphone socket on Laptop to sound in on TV
