I no longer have sound over hdmi via my 8800GT ( connected to sdpif) ....  this problem started as I was updating BF Bad Company 2 and then all of a sudden i hear some screechy whiny noise coming from the PC.

I can however still get audio when I plug in my USB speakers.

Something may have enabled DTS encoding if supported on your soundcard or drivers, that will become loud noises if the data gets played as audio

Gah i think there's more to it than just the sound problem now.

Started playing Bad Company 2, and within a minute or so into the game...  the computer would make that whiny noise again.   Fired up DiRt2 and it crashed the PC after a minute or two into the game.

I've determined that it isn't my graphics card(at least I think it isn't!), as the noise is coming from around the upper half of my motherboard.  So if that's the case is it fair to assume that i have either

a)a PSU on its last legs unable to draw the required power for the graphics card
b)a poked motherboard
c)CPU issues
