There are a couple of things to check
first if you are using the front socket on your computer case, that this is actually connected to the motherboard (sorry if this is patronizing but I dont know you obviously)...try plugging in the back for simple check of this rather than open your PC up.
click control panel classic view (if there depending on which windows you are assuming windows)
double click sounds and audio devices click audio tab
look in the sound playback drop down ensure that you sound card is selected, there may be a few variants, try different ones.
lastly click on voice tab click in voice playback volume button ensure that none of of the mixer options have mute ticked.

How to set your new audio or recording device to work.

Most of these products say that instillation is easy.After you install it though the sound does not come out. I have had numerous people not able to use their new audio or recording device simply because they did not now that another device was set as default. When you try to use your new speakers or headsets you must remember one thing. You must always make sure it is the default device,otherwise it may not work. To make sure it is you must take these following simple steps.

Step1: Look at the bottom right hand of your screen. Right click the speaker icon next to the date and time.
Step 2: Click on the option view playback devices
Step 3: Now look through the options. Right click on the option that is your new device.
Step 4: Click the option that says set as default device.

Now your new device should work.

For recording devices repeat this process. The only thing to change is instead of clicking view playback devices click recording devices.

Hope this tip helps!

I cant hear playback as im recording, can you tell me why?

newer laptops and pcs use an HD audio chip. sigmatel or realtek or IDT usually. their configuration is held in the registry. some functions may not be configured to even display.

1st step is go to control panel and select the sound icon/option.
that will open a tab view for you sound card configuration, looks different in vista vs xp.

under XP you want to select the recording options to view and make sure which input is recording.
then you want to select the playback view to see which items may be muted or available for playback. You will be looking for input or mic depending on what you are using.

under vista there are a recording and playback tabs.

under vista you can right click on the area of a tab and select the option to display disabled devices, which you can then enable. depending on the sound card driver, the playback device can be selected and a new set of tabs can display monitor tab and/or volume controls with perhaps a check box for record monitor.

you can double click a device (i.e. playback device) to see it's properties and it will display a set of tabs that may include an Input monitor tab or a Enable Record Monitor Checkbox.

if not then it means the driver was not configured to support the function. this is usually a registry entry binary value named like EnableRecMonitor set to 01. The registry is tricky so if you don't have the back ground, look for a newer driver that may have the option enabled for your sound card...

I installed the intel driver for the onboard sound and I still cant hear anything

Look in device manager. Under Sound, are there any yellow icons? No - next step, Yes - reinstall driver

Using XP

go to control panel

choose - sound and audio

click on the - audio tab

Is your sound card listed as the default sound playback?

Very rare, but check under services, Windows audio and check that it is running.

Do you have onboard audio or a sound-card?

If you are using onboard audio try checking the motherboard's BIOS to ensure that the audio was not disabled. To enter the BIOS watch the screen VERY closely during the startup procedure. Typically the computer will mention something to the effect of, "Press F1 to enter Setup." You are looking for a similar message listing the key to press to enter, "setup." You will have to repeatedly press that key until you enter the BIOS screen. As a hint, if you see the Windows loading screen, you missed the screen notifying you of the key associated with entering setup.

Once you manage to enter the system BIOS, use your keyboard's arrow keys to select different menu options. Using the ENTER button on your keyboard enter some of the menus looking for options on onboard audio or integrated sound. Once you do find such an option check to see if it is disabled or enabled. If you're using onboard audio, you will want to ensure that it is enabled in the BIOS. Once you changed the settings exit the BIOS saving changes.

WARNING: Only change this particular setting! If you do not know what you're doing with the other settings you could potenitally damage or destroy your computer!

If the audio was never disabled in the BIOS and assuming you're using Windows, check your audio controls. To check these settings go to the control panel and open the Sounds and Multimedia (or Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices. Then Sounds and Audio Devices) application. Afterward click on the, "Volume" (Or Audio) tab at the top. Now click on the, "volume" button associated with the, "Sound Playback" section. Now make sure your main audio mix is turned up to your desired level.

If your audio is still not playing try changing the, "Default (Playback) Device" for the, "Sound Playback" section. If you have more than one sound source, you could be using the wrong one. Changing the default playback device might send sound to the audio ports you are currently using thus enabling your sound.

If it's still not working post a comment telling us what methods you tried which failed. I'm sure we can get your sound working. :-)

Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it

Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).

No audio device

try these possible options -
1 check to see if your cable is in the correct plug. usually the green one. stupid I know, but its an option.
2 check into your bios. the system may have disabled the onboard when you put the sound blaster card in.
3 go into your windows sound options and change the playback device to the onboard one. (the sound blaster may still be there)
