    I connected my laptop to my TV through an HDMI cable, the sound goes through the laptop, but not through the TV. I checked in control panel under playback, and right clicked to show disabled devices, and the TV isn't listed.

    I went through this with 1 laptop. We have 2 Acer laptops. One worked perfectly, the other never showed the tv and the sound came through the laptop.

    Let me guess: is the chip in this laptop Intel rather than AMD?
    If so, I can solve this once I find my notes. I've looked in 2 logical places but those notes aren't there. I'll keep looking.

    I found the thread and I now printed it out.
    This works if it has an Intel CPU. The AMD laptop had no problem with the sound coming through the tv.

    Open Device Manager and disable Intel Display Audio. Then scan for hardware changes and select High Definition Audio Device.
    Once that is done, you'll see HDMI as a choice in playback.
    You aren't done just yet. Once you plug the HDMI cable from the laptop to the tv, the generic HDMI should be replaced with the model of tv.

    It won't switch immediately as it does on an AMD computer. I had to select it as the playback device. Then the sound comes through the tv.
