Hello all, just put together a new build and everything has ran fine all day. Well all of a sudden I notice that I dont have sound anymore. So for the last few hours I have been troubleshooting. I have come to the conclusion that my motherboard is being defaulted for my HDMI sound instead of my GPU. I can plug my hdmi into my motherboard and sound works fine.. but I cant get sound through gpu all of a sudden. I am really lost on this problem as it seems I have tried nearly everything.
When I have HDMI plugged into GPU then in my Sound>Playback, it has my display(32 inch lcd tv) greyed out and says it is not connected. But again, sound works when i plug hdmi into motherboard. If I plug hdmi into GPU, I can default my speakers or realtek digital output and both appear to be working normally according to windows.. but I get no sound from either. Earlier before my sound stopped working I was using the realtek digital output.. but it just miraculously stopped working through gpu.
