I upgraded my GPU's and now have no sound.
Went from GTX 465 to 560.
My pc connects to a Phillips tv, DVI to HDMI.
I have a Logitech usb headset.
My pc connects to a stereo receiver, all analog.
I have no sound from either of them.
I have always used the onboard realtech audio for sound.
I am running Windows 7 64bit.
Nothing has changed other than the GPU's.
Any ideas..?

I just realized after unplugging analog audio to stereo receiver
that my TV and USB headset now have sound, making me think that
the onboard realtech is the problem.

You should check to see if you have 2 different sound drivers
arguing with each other. An older one for the Realtek and the
new one you installed with the new GPU.

I've had that problem. The problem is that the GFX drivers hogs all the audio to use for the HDMI.

But I can't remember what I did to resolve the problem... I might have reinstalled the on-board audio drivers and/or disabled the audio in the GFX driver. I wasn't going to use the HDMI, so I didn't have to take HDMI audio into consideration.
