    Force ubuntu to NOT use HDMI for sound

    Hi guys,

    I recently found out that to use my hdmi cable instead of vga, all i had to do is unplug the vga and reboot. Brilliant!
    However, now sound is send to my monitor and the sound, well it ain't that good. I want to use my onboard sound.
    I used alsamixer in a terminal to see if I could change it but it only sees my NVIDIA card (graphics+sound)

    Could someone point/advice me to the right location or simply tell me what to install? Preferebly a GUI to set it up.
    I'll post a short howto in order to help others out.

    I already tried another part of the forum. Reinstalled libalsa32.. something in order to undo the damage done by unplugging my vga cable.

    cat /proc/asound/cards :
    0 [NVidia ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
    HDA NVidia at 0xf9f78000 irq 23
    From alsamixer:
    Card: HDA NVidia
    Chip: Realtek ALC1200

    Hope someone can point me in the right direction..

    Thanks in advance,

    Recently I came to find out that sound is send to both speakers and monitor. There is no issue here
