Hey guys, I installed a radeon gigabyte 6850 graphics card in to my computer a long time ago and after I made the switch from Nvidia to Radeon my input jacks and output jacks stopped working. Usually I can live with it and use my laptop or phone for skype but I've just bought a game on steam and I can't use steam voice chat on a different system then play on my gaming system at the same time and playing games with my friends without voice chat is unacceptable.
When I plug a mic in it says its working and it shows up in realtek hd audio but when i try to use it with anything it doesnt work. The bar doesnt even go up when i test it in windows 7 so it must be muted. I've tested the mic with a laptop before so it definitely works. I've reinstalled realtek hd drivers
I think the problem is I'm using hdmi to connect my tv and use it as a monitor and apparently using hdmi sound from amd cards mute all other sounds. I need the speakers on my tv as they are my only speakers, and buying new speakers or a sound card is not a possible option right now. And even if I could get speakers, my tv only connects via hdmi anyway so the sound would still be muted so I really need this fix.
So does anyone know how I can get windows 7 sound to work while using hdmi from a radeon graphics card to output sound to my speakers? Does anyone use hdmi to connect their display to an amd graphics card?
This is a major fault on amd's part as I have researched the internet for a long time to get a fix on this but I have found nothing. When I had my nvidia gt220 I used hdmi to connect to the same tv monitor and output sound and i could use my mic. But I can't switch back to that card as it's highly inferior in game performance and I've already sold it anyway. Shame one you AMD, now I know why your graphics cards are alot cheaper than nvidias. Please someone help me out and sorry for the lengthy post. Thanks in advance.
