Sound card mysterious problem

I've got a problem with my old ECS P4S5A/DX+ MB and his integrated sound card: even if I downloaded the right driver and the card is fully detected by the system (Windows XP sp3), I still can't hear anything.
Everything seems to be ok: all audio services are running, the volume is up and my sound device is plugged-in.

I recentely changed the MB with a new one, same model, but new, so that I'm sure that, speaking about hardware, nothing is broken.
It seems like it is a software thing...

Any ideas?

  1. Check teh sounds menu of the Windows Control Panel, and check which output device is selected as the default.

    Also, when playing back audio, do the green bars [that indicate output volume] show? If so, this means that the output *should* be getting to the output device...
