With NVIDIA HD Audio installed, my headset microphone does not work. I want to uninstall i, but every time I do it through the device manager, it reinstalls. How do I uninstall it permanently?

I'd bet the problem is for some reason the HD audio device became your default recording or communications audio device.
You should check this in the sound settings in Windows' control panel.

If you really needed to remove the driver, I don't know a way, but you can try not installing it in the first place.
Remove the display driver, then run the installation, let it decompress to a folder, and then when the installer with the grey background launches, quit it.
Go to the folder where the driver decompressed, delete the hdaudio installer and then run setup.exe from that folder.
