It appears that I have no sound after upgrading my Graphics card from an AMD to a Nvidia GTX 760. There is no option on bios to disable onboard high def audio, and Realtek will not install back onto my computer? Any help would be appreciated.

Go into sound properties and set the default device to the realtek onboard device.
Video driver install have started setting the default device as the video card for hdmi output. That way you have sound over hdmi on the video card.

Realtek is not an option under audio settings all I have is the Nvidia options. Realtek is completely gone from my control panel. And for some reason I cannot reinstall the drivers for it.

Should I install my old graphics card back and see if that will allow Realtek to install again.

see if there is a option in the nvidia controll pannel if not unistall drivers remove grphics card re intall other graphics card .uninstall sound drivers install new gpu install gpu drivers first and then sound driers.
if your sound drivers where not uninstalled they still should be in there .probably thee nvidia control pannel is blocking the driver.did you recentllllllly changed any settings in ms config? startup aplications?there is a realtake on startup see if it is enabeld.

So I have tried what you have suggested and still no sound. When I put the Mobo CD in and install the original drivers it says that realtek is already installed yet I don't see the speakers or Realtek under Volume Control Panel? BIOS does not have an option for enabling Realtek or Disabling HDMI Nvidia. Nvidia HDMI Ports0,1,2,3 are the only thing that I am seeing in volcume control panel.

try this.
Start
Control Panel.
Sounds.
Here you should see all sound devices.
Choose Speakers or Realtek and set it to default.
The option is not found under volume control panel properties.

I will try this when I get home, I am currently at work... Thanks for the advise everyone. Also, I cant remember if under sound realtek is even there, what if it doesn't show anything but the Nvidia drivers. would disabling them allow the others to default automatically.

This panel shows all available sound devices.
Realtek or speakers should be an option . You stated that the Realtek drivers were installed, so it should be there. But the V/C HDMI is set as the default.

I assumed you were running WIN 7 so I could be wrong on those directions.
Try uninstalling the Realtek drivers and then re-installing them.
This should set them back as the default sound device.

if the above solution doesn't work install old gpu drivers than repeat the above procedure again.weird things can happen when not uninstalling old gpu driver.

For anyone that this solution didn't work please take a look at your BIOS settings. I have a dell T5400 work station and
I had to set the on-board sound device to ON through BIOS for it to work properly

After struggling for an eternity here is what seemed to have worked in my case:
1. I uninstalled all Nvidia audio (I had just installed a GT760 4G)
2. I uninstalled from the device manager both the Realtek (including the software) and the High Definition Audio
3. I rebooted
Now in the device manager there is no Realtek at all but 2 x High Definition Audio and the sound is working fine. I sustpect there is a conflict between the Realtek software and driver and the Windows Audio and/or the Nvidia Audio that cases the problem. Of course you don't have any more the fancy pop-up window whenever you plug in a device but I checked and both the front and back speaker outputs work fine, so:
MSI please take care.
