New card no sound

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded my graphics card frpm a nvidia g100 to a nvidia 9500gt. When I replaced the the cards I noticed my old card had a gray wire running from it to the motherboard while my new card had no such wire. I use my HDTV as a moniter using a DVI to HDMI cord for a hook up. Now I know that doesent include audio so I got seperate cables for sound but just cant get sound from the pc to come out of my tv. I could before becuase my old card had an HDMI slot so I simply used and HDMI cord to hook it up. So my question is does the gray wire from my old card have anything to do with why I cant get any sound with the new card and if not then why cant I get sound? Thank you

Yes, many video cards have a connecter to add sound to the HDMI feed.Check the documentation for your card (and motherboard).If the "grey wire" is still attached to the motherboard, you should be able to plug it into the video card.

Thanks for the reply I checked my new card and there is no where to plug it in. But Ive installed sound cables into jacks on my pc and tv with no luck.
