I have the Geforce 9500s graphics card with DVI and HDMI outputs. So of course I connect to my HDTV and everything is set up now but no audio. After some online investigation I learn that there is a cable that must be connected between motherboard and card to carry digital audio. So I crack open the case and to my surprise the cable is already in place and connected to jspd1 jack on the motherboard. But still no audio....I have enabled HDMI output in Realtek soundcard manager, even tried setting onboard audio to on instead of auto on BIOS. I am at a loss here, since now when I watch Netflix or DVDs I must use a 3.5mm cable to connect line out to a tiny little stereo I had lying around and the sound quality really sucks. Any help at all with this would be greatly appreciated!

A couple options here:

1) You could get an adapter to run from the audio cable to your HDTV.

or

2) Get a new Graphics card. Surely your GT 9500 has already given you your money's worth.

Thanks Damric, for taking the time to answer. I forget in todays society that a six year old computer is positively ancient lol. I do appreciate the effort to help me here, but since I really only use this PC as a media player and do my gaming on console now I guess I will just make do. I was really just curious if there was some aspect of configuration that I might have been missing out on, or if I have uncovered a failing graphics card or motherboard. I'm just one of those types who can't help wonder "but WHY doesn't it work?!" lol

It's considered legacy by NVIDIA, so try the legacy driver and see if it helps. Other than that you could get somethign like an HD 5450 for like $30 to run media.
