    Hi

    I'm running a bootcamp of Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate with an External Monitor from LG with an HDMI cable

    When I'm doing this on OS X Lion, I have no trouble at all, everything works including sound.

    However, while I'm in Windows, I've noticed that the sound is missing. I'm not using any external speakers or headphones either.

    Anyone else have had this problem?

    Thanks!

    This one might work: go to Control Panel, open the Sound settings and check that the hdmi output is set as the default in the playback tab?

    As oddly enough, it kind of worked. While HDMI was the set standard, I'm having it played out of my Macbook Pro's speakers now. I hope is a reason for this but for now, this will do!

    Thanks!
