Do you have a separate sound card? Have you tried plugging in headphones into the speaker out jack to see if anything is heard? What is your system, briefly? Do you have a music software programme?

I had a problem just after installing W7 - maybe a coincidence. The sound card properties on Device manager were ok. but I got no sound.I think the speakers had caused some sort of feedback and blown the output part. In the end I neded a new sound card and speakers. Worth seeing if you can hear anything via headphones. Good luck.
