What speakers have you got? They could be faulty.

Did you connect the cable which goes from the cd drive to the motherboard.

Yeah, test the Speakers first, then maybe install the Drivers again, after that I don't know - if that doesn't work it must be the Motherboard.

Lots of answers
Get a SB card
Check Control Panel MMedia for speaker on taskbar.
BIG ONE,Do you have "powered speakers" ?
At least 2.1

Ah thats a point - if they're headphones you should try some real speakers.

This should have no effect on volume.You have to tell Windows where the sound is going.
Really onboard sucks,Windows has an Update, try it.
