The videocard has it's own sound decoder for the HDMI output. For whatever reason that driver likely is not installed.
Download the latest ATI drivers for your video card. http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst...p=xp/radeonx-xp
Install the drivers and make sure the audio driver for the videocard gets installed (the "BOX" will be checked).
Leave it alone if you are using onboard sound and not using the HDMI cable.
I don't know how 32bit XP will see all of your memory by fixing this driver issue.
