Default GTX 285 HDMI/spdif problems

I'm trying to hook up my pc to my hdtv through HDMI.I connected the small spdif cable from my gfx card to the spdif pin + ground on my motherboard as both manuals prompt me to.The problem is that when doing so it will not boot,the fans are not spinning,nothing happens when i press the powerbutton.When i remove the cable again it takes a few minutes for it to start,remains dead until it suddenly starts spinning up and booting.This has me stumped and i have no idea why it just dies like this.Anyone has a clue ? If i'm not using the onboard audiocard should i use the spdif pins on my creative card instead ?

I'm a bit reluctant just to wing it since i'm uncertain if it will boot normally,i've had zero issues with the gfx / mobo before trying this.If i can't find a sollution i'm thinking of buying a 470 card instead and use the mini HDMI connector instead.Any insight would be helpful.

ljudet bör gå via ditt ljudkort
men MBt bör ju inte dö av att du kopplar dit spdif kabeln har du satt den åt rätt håll ?

Jo,enligt manualen så sitter den rätt,ska testa att sätta den på ljudkortet i stället så får vi se.
