Windows 7: i have a dual monitor display and want sound from both monitors

i have a dual monitor display and want sound from both monitors

I have 2 27" Samsung Syncmaster s27b550 monitors which are connected to my Nvidia Geforce GTX650 TI via HDMI and VGA. both screens have speakers. i also have an inbuilt sound card on my Motherboard.

Sound comes out of my Graphics accelerator through the HDMI Cable to the monitor on my left and if i plug a 3.5mm stereo cable from my on board sound card to the audio in jack on my 2nd monitor i don't get anything.

what i am trying to achieve is to setup up the monitor on my left as the left channel and the monitor on my right as the right channel so it balances the sound between the two monitors. Can i blend the two sound outputs like they are 1 and use each output as a single channel.

I don't think you can do what you want, with the setup you have. First, Windows only allows one "default" audio playback device and with HDMI it defaults to the HDMI audio. Thus the PC audio (speakers) do not work.

I don't know if an external device would split the HDMI audio so you could do what you want. That looks like the option if something like that is available.
