Or better yet double click on them and see if they sport any options. Possibly a way to disable hdmi audio is key.
I have uninstalled the drivers before, whenever I restart my computer, it keeps popping up with the "Found new hardware" (4times). Thanks for the suppor though.
what about the options are there any options in them

Not without connecting it via HDMI to a suitable receiver.

All 4 are from the video card, and likely little to no options in the Nvidia control panel for them either.

Something like this,

Newegg.com - ASUS XONAR_DG 5.1 Channels PCI Interface Xonar DG Sound Card

would solve all the problems as you can't make the necessary change in the bios to force enable the onboard audio. Cheap enough and will work regardless of what the bios says. Should also find that you will get better sound quality out of it even though it is a budget card than what you get from the onboard.

The only solution to the bios problem is to contact the motherboard or computer manufacturer and get them to release an update that includes actually enabling the onboard. And until you can actually enable it in the bios, there is nothing short of a sound card you can do. They either didn't think about video cards with built in sound (and not being used for such) completely disabling the onboard audio, or they don't care.

I'll consider buying that soundboard, but before, can you give me a detailed description on how to use HDMI audio?

Plug on end into the HDMI port on the video card, plug the other into a TV/monitor/receiver with a HDMI port, set HDMI as the default playback device and listen through what you connected. Also the only way you will get 5.1/surround from it is if the source is encoded as such, otherwise it will only be stereo unless whatever you are connected to supports something like Dolby Pro Logic to be able to upconvert it to surround.

I have an intergrated sound device, it seems. I plan to buy a soundcard though. I can't remove the intergrated sound device though. What should I do?

It's not about drivers, it's the BIOS...

I'm not sure if you've already solved it, but I just experienced that same problem with this old HP computer, an Athlon X2 with an Intel (crappy) board running 64 bit Win 7 Pro.

As soon as I installed a GT430 card the sound went dead - "no sound devices are installed".

No driver re-installing or messing with Windows. Just go to the BIOS, look for "PCI DEVICES" and disable the "Nvidia HD Audio" that's been assigned to IRQ 10 or 11. Hit the arrows until it says "disabled".

Save and restart.

The answer is late, but I fixed this by getting a new PCI sound card.
