Open control panel, select device manager. Expand the entry called "Sound, Video and Game Controllers".
Now right click and select uninstall on each of the audio devices (so the ones that's name is high def audio or realtek audio or similar)

Then install the drivers that you have on the CD

On startup after restart Windows automaticlly installs Digital Audio (HDMI). I think this got something to do with all this, because when I uninstall it from Device Manager I can hear sounds.

Here's Playback devices and Recording devices. And I can hear sound now but it takes about 1 minute to appear when Windows starts.

What if you would disable that digital audio device there? ( Don't worry if it disappears you can still take it back if you right click to a blank area inside the box, you will find out how )

Now happens nothing, because I can hear sounds now. But I said, it takes about one minute for them to appear after Windows starts. That Digital Audio does nothing and is necessary, I think.

Open start and type in Services, click on the gear icon. Scroll down to Windows Audio and double click it. Make sure it is set to automatic start and not to delayed start.

When I start Windows at the bottom corner there's a icon witch says "Device are being installed." There's no Windows startup sound, no Skype sound when it comes online or anything. Then after ~1 minute sound comes from nowhere.
