Yep, sounds like the default sound isn't set to the HDMI audio of the 580.

thanks for the support
the issue was the default device

is there a way to have both my speakers and the hdmi output active at the same time?

I don't think there is a way with onboard sound and windows drivers. You typically need a separate sound card (from onboard) that'll let you mirror the sound across 2 devices.
