Audio can come from 3 different sources
1) Onboard Audio
2) Dedicated Card
3) GPU

If your GPU is cooked then you won't get audio from it which relies on onboard. If the onboard is dead it relies on the dedicated card.

Need more info- what equipment is downstream?

Check/change the refresh rate of the HDMI output, anything other than 60Hz will sometimes prevent a handshake.
