No sound with HDMI

I have just updated to Windows 7 and i have my video and audio on a HDMI cable. I have video but no audio. I have everything set to HDMI audio but there is no sound. please help. if there is info needed let me know what you need I am not extremely computer literate so i will need simplest terms available. hahahaha.

If your computer is having problems playing sound, try using the Playing Audio troubleshooter to fix the problem. It checks for common problems with your volume settings, your sound card or driver, and your speakers or headphones.


To open the Playing Audio troubleshooter:

1.       Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.

2.        In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting.

3.       Under Hardware and Sound, click Troubleshoot audio playback.

4.       Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

sorry, this solution would not help on hdmi. when it asked me which one i wanted to choose there was only headphones or speakers and i tryed both and it said that they were unplugged. so i dont know what to do. maybe it is the drivers i have and need to just wait for the correct driver to be installed or updated.
