The HDMI standard includes audio.

The issue becomes does your computer comply with that part of the 
standard or is there possibly a setting somewhere that turns it on. I 
would assume that if the computer has the HDMI output it most likely 
supports audio so I would look for a setting somewhere. But, one should 
never assume anything.
