Windows 7: My sound is going through PC instead of the MIC with headset

My sound is going through PC instead of the MIC with headset

So i've been browsing forums for a while now and can't find out what's going on. I have a sound card with Realtek HD Audio. Recently, I connected a PCIM cord to my motherboard so I can have sound on an HDTV, which works fine. SINCE then, this problem started. The front ports for MIC and sound don't work at all, I don't get an "audio device detected" message. If i plug my headset MIc and Sound into the back of the PC, i hear the sound but so does everyone else instead of my Voice. I can tell this i whats happening because when I right click on recording options i see the bars on the mic moving with my sounds. Now if I unplug the sound portion and leave the MIC in, it does pick up my voice as normal. I can even plug in my speakers and they will play sound and it will work that way. not really ideal for a headset however, I'm not sure what setting to change or what to do to get this to work. Also the headset does not show up in playback devices, i have show hidden and unused checked. I tried to update my drivers but when I try to install them windows gives me a "untrsuted" pop-p that re-appears not matter how many times I select allow. any ideas?

When you are using HDMI, that becomes the defaul audio playback device. In order for the PC sound system (including headphones) to work or properly work the "Speakers" (your sound card) must be set as the default audio playback device.

Windows only allows you to have one default audio playback device, e.g. HDMI OR Speakers but not both.

I did manage to fix the front jack issue, but the pc isntead of mic problems persists. I do have 2 different devices i have swithc between speakers and "digital output" if I want to use my TV. picking either as default doesnt fix the issue.
