Have you tried different speakers? Can you hear a audio CD playing in the drive if you plug the headphones into the phone-in socket on the front (if you have that option). Have you checked to make sure the BIOS hasn't disabled onboard sound?

Check that there isn't a problem with the drivers. go to device manager & see if there are any yellow exclimation marks.

Do you have front audio on your case, or only the connectors on the back?

True story just in today. I was talking to a user who said "you know sound has never worked on this PC and I've had it for years".........

.....the speakers were built-into the monitor and there was a monitor setting using the OSD that had mute enabled :)
