I have my monitor hooked up to my PC via HDMI, which has an audio out to plug my speakers into. After a reboot(might've been after I updated my graphics card's drivers), my computer stopped registering my monitor as a playback device.

 

How can I get sound back?

 

 

Specs:

Motherboard: MSI something,not sure
Videocard: GTX 770
Processor: intel i7 950
Ram: 4gbx2 Crucial 1600 DDR3
Powersupply: 650 watt

my guess is that there is a connection missing, it is real tiny and is called a SPDIF or something like that. have you checked into that?

Well, when I go into the playback devices, there is something called SPDIF or something like that listed there, not sure what that is. Other than that, no physical connections have been altered, it just disppeared when I rebooted, I think after a clean driver update.

it is somehow related to using hdmi out on a card and having audio. i saw it in a youtube video once.

 

most of the time, users don't pay much attention to the feature, but cards that feature hdmi  definitely do have the provision on the circuit board i think.

That's been on the playback devices list even before all this happened, and I can't get sound to play if I put that on default and plug the speakers into every hole imaginable.

until you get the hdmi sound figured out, is there a lime green headphone jack anywhere on the back of the case??

 

most motherboards have the onboard audio built in and it usually is quite functional, although not the best quality
