HELP sound doesn't work?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I switched from a 5770 to a GTX 260

Now my audio doesn't work?

I have no idea why I"m trying to figure it out. It worked perfectly on the 5770

I have it hdmi to dvi, but I have the sound coming from my onboard to the 37" TV (same as on the 5770)

You have to run a spdif cable from your sound card (or onboard sound) to the GTX260 in order to get sound out through the HDMI. The 5770 has the sound totally built-in so doesn't require this cable. If you bought the 260 new, it probably came w/this cable.

I wasn't trying to get sound through the GPU, I had it connected to the onboard (even did the same with the 5770)


I finally got it to work by switching to a standard VGA connector and using the sound from onboard as before

Oh, okay. Glad you got it sorted. You can just run a cable to the card from your onboard sound to the gfx card and do the sound through the HDMI though if you like. That way you'll get a digital video feed ... tends to look a bit better imho.

Even if you connect from the HDMI, under the sound devices settings of windows, you can go back to the on-board by selecting it as the default one.

Usually when you connect to HDMI, windows decide "oh cool, HDMI! neat! Lets put sound through that" as a default matter. Its fixable.

I would've thought that the problem would be the TV. Since he'd be setting HDMI as the source for the video, the TV would expect the sound to also be coming through that same HDMI cable.

No, not nessecerily.
Most TVs seperate audio and picture. They can get it from the same source if you are using HDMI or scart, but its not a requirment or always expected.
It does depend on the TV maker, but the standard does not force it.

My TV has 2 HDMI inputs, one just has the HDMI the second had the RCA white/red input. I have ran the DVI to HDMI to the picture and the 3.5mm to RCA to the sound for a couple years now. I've used the 5770 and 8800 gts g92 and g80. However for some reason the GTX 260 I didn't like the HDMI picture and actually like it better using the VGA + 3.5 to 3.5

Yeah I had something similar when I used a GTS250. HDMI looked a bit, off.
My 4830 looked better on the TV.

I currently use DVI->HDMI (including audio) and it looks better.

It could be just how the TV scale the HDMI input from the PC. Many times you need to set it in the picture settings to try to make it better.
