I apologize if this has been discussed. I'm quite the noob. I have a laptop, the screen is broken so I have it plugged into a monitor. I also have my hdtv plugged in, which I use for streaming hulu and netflix. I want to know if I can play my games and listen to music out of the laptop speakers, while the audio for hulu still goes thru the tv. I cannot think of how to phrase my inquiry in one sentence, so google was totally unsuccessful. Any help would be awesome, thanks everyone.

My System

No. Windows will only output default audio (which includes all Windows sounds and browser audio) to a single chipset. There is not a way to separate Windows sounds, browser audio, and gaming. With a second audio chipset, you could separate audio from a media player.
