  1. Is it possible to use one monitor only as sound output?


    Hi,

    i've a new main monitor; the built-in speakers sound sucks and I'll get new speakers by Christmas. My old main monitor doesn't fit on the desk in any visible spot, but it fits behind the new monitor. So I was thinking of connecting all the 3 monitors to my pc, with the main and secondary visible with video output, and the old monitor behind the new one. That would mean extra work for the gpu and I might lose the mouse and some windows in a monitor I can't see.

    So, is there any way to tell windows a specific hdmi output has to be not used as video output, but only for audio?

  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.

  4. Is it possible to use one monitor only as sound output?

    Is it possible to play sound through headphones and HDMI output simultaneously?

    Hi David,

    I would like to inform that it is not possible to output sound through both the HDMI and the headphone jack simultaneously.

    But you can watch video through HDMI and listen via headphone jack.

    Follow the steps below.

    • Right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar
    • Left click playback devices
    • Right click HDMI
    • Select Disable.

    Hope this information helps.

    Regards,
