question about Sager laptop and audio

I have this

http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np7352-clevo-w350st-p-5842.html

hooked it up to the TV via HDMI but i get no sound. It doesn't look like the video card doesn't output sound via HDMI. my old laptop had sound output via HDMI. Wondering if there is something missing with this laptop? Or it just doesn't do sound via HDMI??? The video card is a GTX 765m

Did you install the NVIDIA HDMI Audio drivers? Right click the speaker icon and see if there is an entry in it called "NVIDIA HDMI Audio". If there isn't then you need to install the NVIDIA GeForce drivers again.

ok I can see the device in the device manager but it has the exclamation mark on it. I've updated the driver for the video card but when I try to update the driver for the sound device it tells me the driver is up to date. when I view the properties it tells me the device cannot start.

any suggestions???

When the TV is plugged in you should be able to choose the HDMI output as teh default audio device. Right click the speaking icon in the tray, choose playback devices, select the TV/HDMI/GPU (it may display as any number of different names), and set it as default.

in the menu all that is available is the speakers, and then an SPDIF/(something) device. Nothing with HDMI is in that menu. I've also tried right clicking and showing disabled devices and nothing is there. It's really bizarre. When I get back home I can show you some pics.

I've also tried enabling that SPDIF device and nothing works. Which is strange though because there isn't any optical audio ports on the laptop.

When I switch to HDMI sound I do as others have stated. Right click the speaker in the system tray and in the audio options you will select the TV as the default audio device and default communication device.

It should give you an option to select it like "TOSHIBATV-1765" etc.
