No Sound Help!

Alright guys, I've been at this for about six hours and I am stumped. I have no sound coming from any jack on my computer via the onboard soundcard or the front jack. Ive uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers from my mobo's disk and went through the realtek website and tried every driver I could find there. The system recognizes the speakers and shows them as putting out sound, but I get nothing. I've even ran through the BIOS to make sure nothing was amiss there. Any help is appreciated.

  3. Did you find a solution to your problem yet?
  4. I never did. I got a new soundcard today and that fixed it up.
  5. Thanks for the reply. I was experiencing the same problem but got it to work shortly before commenting on this thread. Wanted to see if it worked for others.
