With my new M5A88-VEVO board build I have gotten everything working great except for sound. I've troubleshot till my hands bled and to no avail. The on board card is a ALC892 realtek card. I've installed the drivers for it that came with the board, nothing. I uninstalled that and installed the drivers from the site, nothing. Here's the weird part, I even put in a soundcard that I KNOW is good and downloaded the drivers for that, no sound.

Please help, I've literally tried everything before coming here.
Edit: It also recognizes when I plug in the speakers (as an audio device) and it looks like sound is playing in the volume mixer, except there is no sound... the speakers in question worked great on my other computer.
Do your speakers show up in the "Playback" tab in the sound dialog in Control Panel? Do they show a green check-mark? Right click on speakers and click "Test"...Anything? Open speaker properties and make sure all your levels are high enough. Individual speaker components should be at 100% unless you need to balance them for some reason.
Have you tried headphones in the front panel audio out? Same result?
Yes, I have tried those things. No sound still. Even with headphones, no sound. I also tried a pair of monitor speakers. I've eliminated that the issues arn't the cards or drivers or speakers, im pretty sure it's either the motherboard or some setting. And in settings it looks like it's completely fine.. if I didn't have ears I would think it is playing.
