    Audio moves to monitor when plugged in- I want the laptop sound- How to set that? ASUS...


    Thanks- I want to be able to use my fancy sound on the laptop- it's better than the monitor's. BUT, when the monitor is plugged into the computer, it takes over the audio. If the monitor is plugged in, and turned off, there is no sound to be had.

    What settings do i need to change to give me my big voice sound?

    :)

  2. dual monitors stops sound

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better, I suggest you to answer the below questions.

    • When will the sound disable, when playing through main monitor or the extended monitor?
    • Did you try enabling the sound from the sound drivers and check if it helps?
    • Since from when are you facing this issue?
    This issue causes because the monitor automatically takes the HDMI sound as the Default input. Disable and enable the speakers and check if it helps.

    I suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Right click on the volume control and then
      Properties
      ,
    • When you connect the HDMI it becomes the default output device, even though it has no speakers.
    • You need to change this back to "Speakers" and set as default.

    How to get sound to play through monitor.

    Hello. I have an HP Envy 17t-j100 Quad edition. It has a Nvidia 740M. I use it closed while connected to a monitor through HDMI. My monitor is a Dell S2415h. The monitor has speakers, but only through HDMI. It does not have an aux in. Audio only plays
    through laptop speakers. I want it to play through monitor speakers. Here is what I have tried. My laptop only has a "IDT audio codec", which has no way to change settings. It does not have Realtek.

    • Went to sound settings in control panel under the playback tab.
      • The HDMI is not there
    • Restarted with the monitor plugged in.
    • Installed drivers for the monitor.
      • Didn't do anything
    • Went to device manager to try to see if I can enable a sound device.
      • I did not see the name of the monitor, but I did see a "High definition audio device" with a yellow triangle next to it. I tried to get it to update drivers, but it doesn't do anything.
    • Updated all drivers and Windows
    • Went to Nvidia control panel and also Intel chipset settings. There is nothing to change settings for audio. Only 3d and graphics.
    Please let me know how to fix it. Thank you.

    Sound Quality

    One thing that sticks out from looking at your "My Computer" specs. You list "ONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)" which suggests you do not have the correct sound hardware driver. Your motherboard has Realtek sound and the first step is to install the Realtek sound drivers. My ASUS also came with Sonic Studio 2 which is a sound enhancement package. Check the ASUS install disc to see if you have something similar.

    May not be a speaker problem.
