My Lenovo laptop (with Windows 10) is hooked to a projector that only has VGA input. The Lenovo only had HDMI output. I use a HDMI to VGA adapter, which works fine for the video, but the audio cuts out as soon as I plug the HDMI end into the laptop. Why is that, and how can I fix it?

Kane is absolutely right!! You need to select the other Output Device option when you go to Settings >>> System >>> Sound.

I had a similar problem in that I have a Lenovo laptop (E470) with Windows 10. I was using an HDMI-VGA cable to to connect to a separate monitor, because my Lenovo only has an HDMI port and my monitor only has a VGA port.

Thank you, Kane -- your instructions fixed something I had been trying to figure out for quite some time!
