  1. Your GPU does not have a built in soundcard, it can only pass through audio signals from onboard audio. I'm guessing you need to install the audio drivers for your motherboard.

    how do i get the audio drivers? the disk that came with the graphics card was all that came and i installed everything.
  3. Whats your mobo? In all likelyhood, you have a Realtek audio device, and can grab the drivers from either your motherboards manufactureres site, or directly from Realtek.

    The only way a 8000 series GPU can pass through audio is via SPDIF connection directly to the motherboard, and im unsure if the 8400 even has this capability built in or not.
