I just finished building my first pc. I am running windows 7 pro and am having audio issues. I want my sound to be through hdmi which plugged into my 6850 amd graphics card. If i start up the pc with my monitor (plugged in using hdmi) the audio will work correctly but if i turn on the monitor after the pc has booted the audio comes uses a realtek audio driver instead of the amd. I find this very annoying and was wondering if someone can help me fix this issue to force the amd audio driver to always be used even if the monitor is turned on after computer has finished booting.

If you are only ever going to use the HDMI audio with that computer you can always disable the realtek built-in audio.

You can probably do it in the BIOS or you can disable it in the device manager. Your choice.

In windows 7, right click on Computer and pick properties. Then on the left side choose the Device Manager
Then in the Device manager go to the Little triangle next to the sound, video and Game controllers and click it. You should then see the realtek sound. Right click and choose disable.
