Where are you from?
Its a new PC. After that the previous drivers didnt work i installed the latest ones, with no better result, though.

Im from Sweden.

Do you have a soundcard at all? Or are you only trying to use the video card's sound system?

I ask because of your post, and the fact that you list no other soundcard in your system specs other than ATI.

Actually. I dont know what to call it. Ive learned that some graphics cards have intergrated soundcards, so i assumed that was the case with mine too.

There is one sound card intergrated in the motherboard, also.

OK,

I don't think you can use the video card's HDMI audio to play games. In short I'm not sure it's designed for that.

So... for this purpose, since you have no soundcard, you need to make sure the one on the motherboard is enabled and updated with the latest drivers. Check you motherboard's website to find the latest drivers.

Once you've done that, go to Control Panel, Sound, Playback tab, and make sure the MB's soundcard is set to default. That will ensure your MB souncard is the default soundcard for the system.

OK, just posted a question at rage3d on using the HDMI port for gaming and my answer came back like this...

Quote:
You can use the ATI HD Audio processor if you are using a HDMI or DisplayPort connection that supports Audio (i.e. no adapters etc. to connect to display).

For Driver, the Catalyst package includes a recent driver, or you can get the latest Realtek driver package from their website (it's a realtek device).

The only problems I've had with ATI HD audio is when having a non-realtek audio solution (like an X-Fi board) installed, Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 won't start until the ATI HD audio is disabled in device manager.

I use ATI HD audio over HDMI for my HTPC and it works great for movies and games (HDMI connection to my HDTV).
HDMI Audio for playing games? - Rage3D Discussion Area

In other words, you need to have the HDMI port connected to an HDMI source such as a monitor. If the HDMI source isn't connected to anything, you get no sound.

Also note the driver answer.

To add....

ALL video cards have/has driver issues. You could visit an Nvidia forum and find people screaming just as loud there about drivers. In short, ATI's drivers aren't any worse/better than Nvidia. That's why they have that thing called "Driver Updates"

Anyways, the OP's issue may not even be a video issue. That's still yet to be determined
