  1. Hi everyone. I have a Gateway DX4885, running Windows 8, and I am trying to connect it to my TV with an HDMI cable. When I do this, I get a picture which looks very good. However, I do not get any sound. When I click "Playback Devices" on the speakers, I see no HDMI option. On "Device Manager," under "Sound, video, and game controllers," I see a "Realtek High Definition Audio," but it appears to be working correctly. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Shutdown the PC.

    cable the HDMI to the TV and set the tv to view that connection (it will initially say no signal).

    Boot the PC and you should see it install the driver. Select Duplicate outputs and it should display the desktop.

    Now play some video - -
