Check your headset connection. If you get sound there then check your speakers on another computer or try a different set of speakers on your computer. If you don't get sound out of the headset and your speakers work on another computer and another set of speakers don't work on your computer then it's your soundcard drivers.
If you don't have the drivers on disk go to the manufacturers website i.e. www.hp.com, www.dell.com, or whatever you computer manufacturer is. Go to the support page and select downloads. Download and install your driver and you should have your sound back.
If you don't have an integrated soundcard then download the drivers for your card and if that doesn't work replace your soundcard. Let me know how it goes.
No, the headphone output is designed for 2 speaker output. Just recently I had a customer who had no sound coming from the desktop speakers yet the headphones worked just fine. I believe that your model has a sound circuit integrated into the motherboard. It may have a “plastic cap” covering the audio ports (next to the USB ports). If you remove the sound card and enable the integrated audio in the BIOS, you can check to see if the sound card is actually the problem.

The most likely reson why you still don't have sound is you were not able to install the sound card driver properly. I suggest you goto CONTROL PANEL then click on ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS then uninstall all the software/drivers related to your sound card, afterwards restart the computer. Then try reinstalling the sound driver again using the correct Sound Card driver disc. It should work.
Of course downloading the latest drivers for your sound card is always a very goof advise. Check your computer manual or your computer's specifications to know what sound card you actually have in the system. Even calling for techsupport if you bought this from a manufacturer is even better. If you have the information. Goto your computer manufaturers website and get. Otherwise you can download it from the soundcard manufacturer's website directly. Make sure to download the correct driver, since it's not going to fix your problem if you get the wrong one and it may cause problems.
I also suggest that you check if your sound card is still detected by the PC and if it's showing up. You can do this by going to right-click on MY COMPUTER, select PROPERTIES then goto the HARDWARE tab then select the button for DEVICE MANGER. Check if there is any "?" question mark symbol or "!" exclamation mark symbol. Most likely that is your sound card. If there is a red "X" then the device is disabled, you can right-click on it thn select ENABLE to mak it run again. If there is not an item with any of those symbol, you can check SOUND VIDEO AND GAME CONTROLLERS category and see if your soundcard is listed there.
For most systems there is an option in the BIOS to disable the soundcard (especially if its integrated!) check the BIOS to see if the soundcard was disabled there. Check the manual of your computer or motherboard to see how you can get into it.
Finally, I also suggest running your computer's diagnostics, if it has one. This gives you a better picture if the problem is hardware (sound card itself) or software (drivers).
can you teach me how to find my missing computer soundcard , cause i try to find it in internet but still can work it,and course you know in internet to many soundcard driver in there, the correctly i'm don't know my sound card name. thanks for you help, 845GV-M
The Gigabyte website has drivers for the onboard soundcard available, but according to the specs for the Gigabyte GA8ST800 Motherboard there is not built in video card on that model so I'm guessing that is not what you have. See the links below as both have specifications and pictures of their boards that should help clear up which board you have. . The ASROCK P4i45GL does have the Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics adapter built in, do if that is the MB you have, you should be able to use the drivers linked below.
