Download the Intel GMA driver package (I assume you're running Windows 7).
Unzip the file. In the Device Manager, update the Intel HDMI audio device, and elect to choose the location and driver to install, then browse to the HDMI directory in the extracted files.

Update: I was able to download the zipfile. But still do not see In the Device Manager, where to update the Intel HDMI audio device. It still isn't listed.

I have the SAME problem! I have a Dell Studio
The solution provided is specific to Inspiron 1525 SE, although it would work for most systems using any of the chipsets listed on the Intel download page. It is unlikely to apply to your computer, however, as there are many "Dell Studio" models and variants that do not use any kind of Intel graphics or audio.
Provide your system's complete and exact model number, and I'm sure we can resolve the issue.
Meanwhile, try this — connect the monitor or TV via HDMI (required for the next step to work). In the Control Panel, under Sound, open Manage Audio Devices. Select HDMI, or S/PDIF, or Digital Audio, depending on what's available. Choosing "Set Default" may be needed as well.

There is some ambiguity regarding the graphics hardware and Studio 1737 in general. I'll assume that you have both Intel 4500MHD and AMD HD 3650, but do check the Device Manager to verify the installed hardware.
The best first step is to update to the current drivers, which are typically unavailable from Dell.
After updating and restarting the computer, check for new ouput devices with the Sound applet. I'd guess that the HDMI output is routed to the HD 3650, so AMD audio seems likely, but the Intel hardware may have the HDMI, with integrated graphics and audio.

I did buy/plug in audio cables, in addition to the HDMI cable and now in my sound settings, "ATI HDMI" Output is NOW listed
Plugging in a stereo audio cable should be unrelated to the ATI HDMI Output appearing. If you installed the Catalyst drivers from AMD, that would have included the ATI HDMI Output device, so it's now available (and the extra audio cable is unneeded). The HD 3650 video card contains the equivalent of minimal sound card, which is needed to send audio to HDMI.
I'm puzzled by your usage of the term "download". I think you mean "install".
As for the "does not meet the minimum requirements" message, that suggests that the computer doesn't have Intel graphics. As I said, there is considerable ambiguity in Dell's documentation as to just what hardware is in the Studio 1737. As mentioned in my previous post, you really must check the Display Adapters category in the Device Manager to determine what graphics hardware is present.

Thanks! The Intel GMA driver package worked on my Inspiron 1525 running Windows 7 Ultimate.
