My Alienware x51 arrived today, complete with monitor etc. Everything is set up but no sound is coming from the monitor. Headphones work and I have the unit and monitor connected via HDMI. I've tried everything but I just can't get any sound from the monitor.
I would be extremely grateful for any help and assistance and I'm becoming increasingly frustrated.
You might have to un-plug the headphones from the x51.
Also, in Control Panel / Sound ... make sure the HDMI audio device is selected.
