I recently bought a new HP Pavilion Elite HPE-210y, and decided soon after to get a new graphics card to replace the low-end Radeon HD 5450 card with 512 V-RAM. Got the Galaxy Geforce GTS 250 1GB for the price, and so I could have a better gaming experience.
Installation of the card itself was fine, but noticed there were two terminals for S/PDIF Audio. Plugged in the 2-pin Jumper into the card, but couldn't find the S/PDIF terminals on the motherboard. Finally found the terminals after a few hours of looking on the web, and finally calling HP for the location of the terminals, but later noticed they weren't long enough to fit the cable.
Looked around a bit for different cables with a shorter plug, but couldn't find anything.
Is there anyway to get around this to get audio to HDMI, or am I at a loss?

Well, this looks like it might work, but I'm not sure.
The terminals on the graphics card are longer than the ones on the motherboard, but that cable looks like it would fit on the plug in the motherboard. Don't think it would be safe to plug in something that doesn't fit completely.
Can't seem to find any cables with long on one end, and short on the other, so I doubt anything like that is available for anything internal like this.

Good luck and I hope it works out. I couldn't find a motherboard layout (labels in b/w) that indicated SPDIF.
Perhaps the technical support group for your graphics card have some ideas.
