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.

The speakers work pretty well I have them plugged into my phone listening to music now. The drivers are all shown in the device manager. One HD audio from windows and the hd realtek ones.

Ive been through every option i could find. tried changing the front audio from hd to ac97 and visa versa. If i uninstalled the video card and re installed the stock drivers do you think it would make any diffference?
