Hello everyone!

I have an issue...

I bought a new graphics card, a RADEON HD6450, so that I can have two monitors running off my PC at the same time. All is good, except that about a day after installation, the sound now gets played through the monitor (a Samsung 22" TV) instead of through my external speakers  that are plugged into the back of my PC.

I have connected the second monitor to the graphics card by way of a HDMI lead, so that it would work.

Any ideas how I can bypass the graphics card for the sound, so that it plays through my surround speakers like before?

Hi there,

Well, I did that, but all that is showing is the Radeon card, not my speakers...
