  1. HDMI Audio disables itself when lid is closed


    HDMI Audio for some reason decides to disable itself when the lid is closed. i have it connected to my TV with an HDMI cable. when the lid is OPEN, audio is routed to the TV as its supposed to be. but when i close the lid, it forces the audio to switch back to the internal speakers, with NO WAY AT ALL to switch back without reopening the lid. is there a setting for this? it is incredibly annoying, and i have changed numerous settings related to closing the lid and it makes no difference.


    Windows 10, 1809

    build 17763.379

    64 bit


    AMD Athlon II, m300 2.1 GHZ, 8 GB RAM installed

    Hi Dustin,

    We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    Please try the methods below and check if it works.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps and check.

    Let’s first check if “HDMI Output” is selected as the default device.

    Follow these steps:

    • Click Start and select
      Control Panel.
    • On the right hand side of the screen, under
      View by: click the drop-down icon and select Large icons.
    • Click Sound.
    • If you do not have the
      HDMI Output listed under “Playback” tab, right click in the
      playback window and select Show Disabled Device and
      Show Disconnected Device.
    • If the HDMI Output option appears, right-click
      HDMI Output and select Default
      Device.
    Now the audio must be playing on HDMI. If the issue persist, follow the below method.

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to update the HDMI device drivers. Refer the below link to check how to update drivers in Windows 10.
