Problems with volume and volume control

  ponytail 21:13 06 May 2014

Two problems 1st when I click on the sound icon on the taskbar I now get two slide bars have never had this before tonight if I hover the cursor over the icon it says speakers muted does anyone know what has happened.2nd this laptop is currently connected to my bedroom TV using HDMI but there is no sound.When I connect it to my main TV I have to turn the laptop off before connecting to the TV and then turn it on.I am doing this now but still no sound have turned the laptop off connected it to the TV and turned it back on no sound only the sound from the laptop's speaker.Sorry this is so long,Thanks

I did a system restore but still have no volume on TV from laptop.When I click on the sound icon there are two slide bars one has a diagram of a screen maybe TV screen the other has a diagram of what looks like a speaker that one seems to control the volume on the laptop but nothing happens when I use the other slide bar it does not say now speakers muted am really puzzled what would have caused this and why no sound on the TV I get sound when I use my main TV
