Recently I bought a new tv. (yay led!) and its awesome. but here is where the problem starts. I decided to use my old computer as a DVD player and using it.
Amazon.com: 10FT / 3m HDMI TO DVI M/M CABLE: Electronics
Amazon.com: Cables To Go 40413 M/M Stereo Audio Cable (6 Feet, Black): Electronics
(this isnt a advertisment so dont block the link please)
I plugged the DVI into my EvGA 8600gt and HDMI to tv. But the audio is whacked. It never works, at first I thought it was my drivers. But I was proven wrong because my headphones worked. I tried all options with my audio setting on the TV. It just doesnt works, what am I doing wrong?
My next hypothesis is that cause I have the HDMI cable plugged in, and the hdmi provides both audio and video, so my audio doesnt register with the other cable.

Think you will find that you aren't doing anything wrong. Pretty sure you basically answered the question when you said,
I tried all options with my audio setting on the TV.
There is one other possibility if you have the right 8600 GT. If it happens to have a SPDIF header on it as shown here,
Guide: 8800GT/9800GT/9800GTX Sound over HDMI (Now including Creative cards) - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net
then you could get audio over the HDMI connection. Unfortunately that header wasn't standard on the 8600 series cards. If yours does happen to be one of those that does have it, this might help,
DVI-HDMI adaptor w/ audio passthrough support for nvidia 8600gt - AVS Forum
If your card doesn't have the SPDIF header on it, then it is pretty much as I said above and have to use speakers or something other than the TV for the sound.
