Changing the Sound Output Device
If there is no sound coming from an external device connected to your VAIO computer, you need to change the device for sound output.
- Open Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound. (See Opening Control Panel to open Control Panel.)
- Select Sound.
- Select the Playback tab.
- Ensure there is a check mark next to the icon of the device you intend to output computer sound from.
If there is no check mark next to the icon, select it and Set Default.
- Select OK.
To change the sound rate and bit depth
The sound rate and bit depth of the digital audio output signal should be set according to your digital audio device.
Follow the above steps 1 to 3, and then select the HDMI device icon and Properties. On the Advanced tab, select the sample rate and bit depth (for example, 16 bit, 48000 Hz (DVD quality)) which the device supports, and then OK.
