driver cd have you got one and have you installed all the drivers. Which os are you using?

That is part of the supplied stuff
Is this a Laptop or Desktop machine?
If it is a desktop then this will apply
The sound in/out jacks are they in a group on the same panel at the back with the USB/PS2/Games etc ports?
If so this 'On board Sound' and the above disk is what is required.

If the connections are separate furthur down the machine in wqhat is called PCI slot - then this will be a separate driver disk.
If all else fails find out what sound system is installed and Google for the driver.

recheck in your BIOS settings that sound is enabled, dont forget to save before exiting the BIOS.

this is a problem covered many times in past

oor the device full name if this is not the one.
Iguess the wrong driver may have been put in.

For the Windows sounds these need to be set up
