No audio from HDMI on ATI 5570
Posted on 2012-03-21
I have a Sony Vaio PCV-A11L, Model VCG-RA820G running Windows 7 Professional.
My video card is an ATI 5570, and just recently I tried connecting it to my Sony 47" LCD tv.
The video runs fine, I have a perfect looking desktop at 1920x1080 resolution, but I can't get any audio to run through the cable.
I've been reading online, and I see many issues with this video card regarding transmitting audio via the HDMI cable, but in a few cases, I see some success when used in conjunction with certain drivers, or even disabling onboard audio.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find how or where to disable the onboard audio.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have asked a few friends who supposedly know about this, and they all just told me to buy a new video card, but I'd really like to avoid doing that.
Thanks in advance.
