In the device manager it says my soundcard is installed and working properly (I'm on a medion md96015 laptop) but there is no sound. I plugged in headphones and still no luck. All the volume is on 100% so I'm not sure why it isnt working. My soundcard is a SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC.

Has the volume ever worked? Have you recently installed a new sound card or graphics card? You can see whether the soundcard is installed and operating by right-clicking on "My Computer", choose "Manage", and go to "Device Manager" - your sound device will be in there and you can right-click to update the driver.
You didn't write what kind of device do you use (laptop,pc), or the model of your sound card. You can either have: - problem with soundcard drivers (check Device Manager in Windows system, install soundcard drivers from CD) - broken speakers/headphones (check with a different device) - wrong soundcard settings (check sound settings in your computer) - mute or too low volume (try increasing volume).
Is this a brand new laptop?
If yes, install all the necessary drivers & software that came with the product. Also check your volume if its turned on.
If no, & your laptop works fine before. Well this might be a hardware problem already. But 1st check your soundcard if its working in the device manager.
Device Manager walkthrough:
Rightclick on My Computer or Computer
On properties look for Device Manager
On Device Manager look for Sounds & ETC
Double click any of the drop down & check if they say "This device is working properly"
If any of those say it is not working, try to reinstall the driver again. If it didnt solve the problem, then you have to bring your laptop to a repair shop.
Hope this helps.
if you've already checked on the volume, try to check playback devices if your the soundcard is selected properly
to do this: right click on speaker icon on lower right of your screen beside the time then select playback devices, make sure correct soundcard is selected, if you dont know which one try to toggle from one device to another
> if this had been done but still no sound, try to download driver of sound card from this website and reinstall: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67400.html
if soundcard is not the one thats on the webiste go to drivers and downloads and put your serial to get the one that is on your system
I will walk you through checking on your sound card.
Select the start button, control panel
Select Classic view if not default, Open Administrative Tools
Open Computer Management
Select Device Manager from the pane on the left
Expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers
A) If there is a problem with your soundcard, there will be a yellow or red marking next to the device. Right click the problem device and select update driver. If the most recent driver is installed, right click again and select uninstall. Select next until the wizard is finished and reboot. Upon restarting you will the found new hardware wizard. Hit next with all the defaults, allowing microsofft to search for the most suitable driver for you. This will fix many problems with a soundcard.
B) If no device is present, you need to buy and install a sound card.
This is generally caused by a driver conflict. Uninstall the sound drivers for the built in, then try to install the sound drivers for the RMX. If the hardware wizard finds and tries to install the drivers for both sound cards there may be a conflict, due to the drivers for the built in still being in the drivers cab file, then you will have to completely delete the driver file manually. Once you get the RMX drivers to load, you may have to create a seperate sound profile for the RMX, and switch to it manually when using it, in order to keep from creating a conflict between the two.
