So it seems when I route my laptop sound through HDMI, I get sound from youtube videos or games, but don't get any system sounds. Normally when moving the volume slider I would hear the "ding" noise to verify it's working, now it makes no sound nor does it register that the device making any noise in "Playback devices". My HDTV shows up in playback devices and I can make it the default device. Everything works normally with my external speakers when connecting through the 3.5mm jack and making speakers the default device.

This started after I disabled Intel(R) Display Audio in the device manager, and thus HDMI audio, to troubleshoot something for a few days. Ever since I re-enabled it to use HDMI audio again, it doesn't seem to want to register any system sounds. I've reinstalled the Intel audio and graphics drivers, hasn't fixed it. Any ideas?
