Windows 7: Sound didnt return after using DVI-to-HDMI cable

Sound didnt return after using DVI-to-HDMI cable

My friend has a computer that I helped build. I was testing to see if using a DVI cable would increase his graphics. It is DVI to HDMI and a message appeared that said sound was no going to go through the DVI.

Well, we switched back to VGA and he has no sound. Is there an option to set it back to not using HDMI for sound?

Thanks in advance

If you haven't start with checking the Windows Sounds playback settings, and make sure the sound card is set as the default device.

bundling HDMI cable together with USB 2.0 cable will be interferences?
If I tape together tightly HDMI and USB cables for a 15 foot run, will they cause any interference? I know they are digital signals so I think should not. But doing this does cause a herring bone interference with analog vga cable.
