No Sound no matter what I do

Hi.. I would be extremely grateful for any thoughts or advice.

I have a windows 10 computer that has no sound. I have tried the on board sound card and also 2 other sound cards. I have also tried 2 different speaker systems, a 5:1 and a 2:1. All I get when looking at the speaker Icon on the taskbar is "No Audio Output Device |Is installed". Troubleshooting informs me there is no problem to be found. trying to change the sound settings is impossible as it doesn't recognise anything and thus doesn't function.

I've tried to update all the drivers, updated window and i get nothing. Under the device manager it says "Sound, video games and controllers" it says "High Definition Audio".

Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

Sounds as if it might be the type of plug you are using

Hi guys, thank you for your responses thus far.

In answer to wee eddie, I'm using a standard UK wall plug on the 5:1 system and the 2:1 system is powered by USB.

In answer to Govan1x, i am using an Acer monitor. I also had another monitor attached a couple of days ago but the issue was the same.

And green/pink Jack Plugs. What type are they?

The 2:1 is just green, the 5:1 is green/pink
