I think it is worth giving this a try

http://www.realtek.c...3&GetDown=false

agree and choose

32bits Vista, Windows7, Windows8 Driver only (Executable file)R2.70

or 64 bits as applies



ensuring you select the correct one.

Further back in the topic I queried about the Alienware version you had and you replied that it was NOT the R2

You then continued to say

I have the alienware m14xr1 with video as nvidia gt 555m and sound as realtek high def audio with creative sound blaster


now I will stand corrected but - is it not either realtek or sound blaster, rather than realtek with sound blaster



However the main purpose of this post is - appreciate it is not your dell but the principle is the same -

http://en.community....8/19969371.aspx


OR

any chance your laptop is using the Intel onboard graphics which do not of course have HDMI rather than the Nvidia - appreciate yours is not Vostro, but it does have both onboard Intel and Nvidia

"The Vostro has two integrated display cards; an ATI ( for lower power consumption) and an Nvidia. But only the Nvidia has HDMI Audio output. Every time I tried the HDMI with my wide-screen TV, I took the Vostro there but had it running on its battery. BINGO! The Power Option Plan switches from Nvidia to ATI when its unplugged to save power.
So as soon as I plugged it into the wall, the screen went momentarily black and then came back with the HDMI Audio as a alternative option for sound output. Furthermore, I was able to go into the Control Panel > Power option and change to my own custom plan to force the laptop to stay with Nvidia even though its running on its battery. Problem solved!"

When i built the computer I added the sound blaster x-fi for an additional 60 or so dollars so i would have additional sound features. I will try the other thing you posted about I do have intel intergrated and nvidia dedicated i will see if i can poke and prod my alien fusion program and see if that might fix it but im not sure give me 10 mins

Just before I leave you IMHO whatever else you use you cannot beat the Windows 8 system image and if the upgrade was online and you did not make the Windows 8 DVD and install from that on the upgrade, then the repair disc is also vital



Control Panel, Windows 7 file recovery - strangely named by Microsoft, because they designed a new system in 8 called file history - but the one I have pointed you to is the far easier to use

System Image on your external and Repair disc to boot from if you do not have the windows 8 dvd

Me and you both. I was fixing to pay 200 for a new warranty and tell dell to fix it i still might just to be safe. That and i seriously thought about re-installing windows 7 because windows 8 has been a pain in the *** on drivers and programs etc

The alienrespawn program i told you about does all that and more. It takes my comps image from right now programs and all and backs them up all i have to do is click restore and it will roll my entire comp back to todays date undoing everything that i have done to it
