My Nvidia Geforce 9800 gt doesn't deliver sound

Hello,
Windows recognizes it in device manager. I've tried a spdif cable to motherboard. For some reason it won't install driver, gets about 90% and says doesn't recognize compatible device?

In an earlier configuration I had hdmi out to dvi in on an older t.v. I was able to get sound out from the headphone jack to tv audio in. I upgraded t.v. and i'm using hdmi - hdmi (great video / no sound). Could this be a bios issue?

I have turned off onboard audio through bios by suggestion. In the Nvidia control panel / set up HD audio, my HD t.v. is recognized as a HDMI connection. When I go to open Windows sound setting there are NO audio devices listed. If its not a bios issue could it be a "dead" card?

I have a HT 2000 motherboard. MCP61Pm-AM. REV:1.0A. BIOS: Phoenix 6.00 The computer has been upgraded with a 600W PSU. If it's determined I need to replace my video card due to audio issues, what is the best compatible card?

ok. so my visio m420nv is audio compatible with ge 9800 gt! here's what else i found out today... my card is alive! i uninstalled drivers in safe mode and reinstalled driver 314.07... "nvidia installer cannot continue - this graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware. but wait... windows 7 successfully installed nvidia driver 306.987. Now here's the kicker: everythimg but audio drivers are installed, and again i am left without sound. HELP, i need a life preserver.

The 9800GT can only do audio pass through, turn the onboard audio back on.

Thank you for getting back to me. I have turned onboard audio back on. I still do not get any sound, but speakers now appear in the windows audio system. Should I configure them as audio playback? Also I have full compliment of nvidia drivers EXCEPT Nvidia audio (they're not installed). Thank you!

The Nvidia audio drivers won't install as the 9800GT does not have an audio chip, SPIDF pass through is all it can do but I never bothered with it myself.

Hi, Thank you again for addressing my issue: I have configured realtek speakers as audio hd playback (they were already configured after turning on onboard audio). There still is no sound? perhaps not connected spdif correctly? Connected on lower right corner, 4 pin - 2nd pin missing connected to 2 adjacent pins on HT 2000 motherboard. MCP61Pm-AM. REV:1.0A. BIOS: Phoenix 6.00, Kind regards.

from what I understand internal spdif connection on motherboard is 4 pin: 1st 5 volt - 2nd empty - 3rd spdif - 4th gnd. I currently have my 2 pin spdif cable on pins 3 and 4... and of coure the other end on my graphics card.

another observation... realtek audio manager only shows speakers as only playback device. Even with spdif cable connected between grapics card and motherboard, it does not show spdif pass through or digital audio. Am I doomed to connecting another pair of speakers thru my headphone jack as my source of sound??

Now I have found out from a clerk at office depot that I cannot get even SPIDF pass through out of a Nvidia GE force 9800. So the question is now do I go Sound card to my Visio m420NV or speakers directly out of computer?
