    You will need to first download your chipset drivers from the PC or motherboard vendor and run that , np need to reboot yet. You will also need to download the SoundMax from your PC or motherboard vendor and then install that and reboot your PC. The all should work fine. I don't know why the chipset drivers are the real fix with this issue. This did work for my Asus P6T Delux motherboard!

I need to ask. Do you have two speakers showing? One fat red one and one gray one as you usually see on computers everywhere?
Try this either way.
Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Volume Control and make sure you don't have a check mark in your Master Volume control found on the far left.
Are you using a Desktop or laptop?

I have no sound. maybe my computer has been muted


Check that sound drivers are ok as follows
  • Open your start menu (right-click on the "Start" button and choose "Explore"), and find the "My Computer" icon. Right-click on it and choose "Properties" from the submenu. Click on the "Hardware" tab and then the "Device Manager" button.
  • Expand the "Sounds, video, and game controllers" heading to find your sound card. The name will depend on what sound card is installed on your PC. It will most likely have a name containing "audio." It should look something similar to the example above. You'll know immediately if there is a major driver error because an exclamation point (!) will show over the card's icon.
  • Double-click on the name of the sound card to open a new window. In the new properties window click on the "Drivers" tab. If there is no "Drivers" tab then you chose the wrong sound device. Go back and try again. On the "Drivers" tab, click the "Driver Update" button. Follow the Wizard's onscreen instructions to update your driver. You can also contact the manufacturer of your PC for the most recent audio drivers. They can usually be found online.
if the drivers were OK, proceed as follows
You can check the system volume and adjust it as follows
