    >what version of HDMI cable are using ? v1.3, v1.3b , v1.4 etc .  if the version number is unsupported by the tv , it will cause issues .

    1) right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right corner of windows taskbar

    2)select playback devices
    3) highlight digital audio (S/PDIF)" and set it to default. (Try it also Before connecting the HDMI cable)
