You need to load the sound driver from the motherboard disc.

Or,if you post the motherboard make and model number,we can find the driver required.

or you could try the Realtec driver. click here

you said all sound settings! have you double clicked on Speaker sound icon near clock bottom right to check speakers are not muted

Yes mate,have done that,tried everything I can see.will try link you have sent.Will try to take it back to factory settings if all else fails what do you think?

anything in device manager that may give a clue?

Have you done a windows update recently that may have updated the audio drivers?

can you do a driver rollback?

plug in a set of headphones into the speaker jack, does it work now, could be the speaker itself.

Have checked device manager,headphones don't work either.Have recovered back to factory condition and still no sound.Wonder if it is a cable left off when motherboard was replaced,as expected headphone socket to work.Is that poss?Windows hasn't finished updating fully since recovery,maybe that might help?
