HDMI Sound

i need help getting sound out from my new computer.

Okay, I have a Samsung S22A350H LED Monitor, and a HP P6755a computer with an ATI HD 6450 Video Card. I connected the monitor directly to the video card using a HDMI cable. The display works perfectly, however the sound does not. My speakers are plugged in and when my integrated sound (IDT HD Audio codec) is enabled (and set as default) it works perfectly fine, but when i try to set my 'ATI HDMI Output' as default theres no sound.

please help me with this issue

thank you.

Take a minute to think about what you're doing. You want to use the HDMI cable for both video AND audio, right? That means you need to disable the motherboard's onboard sound & enable the video card's HD sound. What does the HDMI cable connect to? The monitor, correct? Does your monitor have built-in speakers? If not, is there a way to connect speakers to the monitor so that you can tap into the HD audio signal from the HDMI cable? If you still have the speakers connected to the motherboard's audio port, they're not going to work because you've disabled the onboard & set the HDMI audio as the default.

the thing is, i heard that instead of using my motherboards onboard sound driver, i can somehow use my video card's sound driver? or sumthing of that kind. is it possible?
