    I have a problem with the sound on my PC. Ever since the middle of May the letters "HD" appear on the display of my PC's Surround Sound System and I get no sound. Netflix streams fine, XBOX Live is fine, my WIFI compatable Sirius radio works normally and the wireless headset I have for the PC does not work. I've done everything one can do to find and eliminate the problem except bring the PC for repair. I even installed a new sound card but nothing has helped. I would appreciate any input to this problem. Thanks, Dave
