    selecting digital audio out isn't even there. I've tried reinstallin
    the Realtek drivers to no avail. I was hoping somebody could help me a

    Have you checked the RealTek control panel ?

    The jack field should show there is a digital jack of some sort.
    It would be more of a problem if that was missing, as it would
    imply the mapping of jacks is wrong for the motherboard. (That
    is typically controlled by an extra-large .inf file.)

    The digital interface has a wrench-shaped circular button (blue background),
    and digital preferences would be there.

    HP has a few audio setup pages like that, which show what hides behind the
    various buttons.

    I can't say whether disabling digital output in that panel, would
    remove a digital option from the Windows sound output preference, but
    I suppose it's possible. The only RealTek which is handy to me right
    now, doesn't have any digital output (S/PDIF or TOSLink).

    This is a picture of what is shown in the user manual, and there
    are two items in the lower right, as well as the "wrench" with
    preferences hiding in it.
