That one, is the one windows will not load.
It was there until the HDMI Cable caused windows to unload it for the ATI-screen driver

That shouldn't have happened. At most it should have changed the default playback device to the HDMI audio once connected, which should then just be a matter of opening the Windows playback properties,

back to the onboard as the default device.

Something to consider.
The Screen is 3D running at 120HZ. with Dual-Link and HDMI 1.3
As HDMI 1.3 will only carry 60HZ X2. a Dual-Link DVI Cable was provided to support full
120HZ at both left and right. (3D)
Now if windows thinks of HDMI as the latest, and therefore the best, (in this case reading sound included) that could be the problem.
Windows should detect though, that also a sound card is present. But at the time windows 7 were developed, these issues didn't exist.
Any comments on this ?
